Кириллица

Play­fair Dis­play have been updated. It now cov­ers the cyril­lic glyphs used in Bul­garian, Belarus­ian, Rus­sian, Bosnian/​Serbian (includ­ing Ser­bian mor­pho­logy for б), and Ukrainian.

Addi­tion­ally, Play­fair Dis­play now comes in three weights and two styles, includ­ing small-​caps for all weights and styles – also for the cyrillic.

Go to Google Web­fonts to use Play­fair Dis­play as a web­font, or to down­load the fonts to your com­puter. Spe­cial fonts con­tain­ing small-​caps glyphs in the place of the lower­case glyphs have also been put on Google Web­fonts.

Use these fonts for true small-​caps in browsers without Open­Type cap­ab­il­it­ies. You do not need to down­load these fonts as the small-​caps are already in Play­fair Dis­play proper.

As you may know, Play­fair Dis­play is pub­lish under the Open Font License 1.1, grant­ing you license to use the fonts free of charge, and enables you to extend and modify the fam­ily should you wish to.

I hope users of the cyril­lic script will find good use for Play­fair Dis­play, and I wish you much enjoy­ment with it.

Hello. Excellent font. But there is an error in the Cyrillic version of a large letter Ы. Fix please. Here's a screenshot https://yadi.sk/i/YyYhM8M0egEH6

¡Strike a pose! Vogue España’s new responsive site uses Playfair Display throughout, and it doesn’t look half bad!

Appeal from Werner Lemberg to fund his work on the FreeType rendering engine. Please consider supporting his work.

I concur.
 
So with even a $399 tablet doing 2560x1600 pixel displays, can we please just make that the new standard laptop resolution? Even at 11"? Please. Stop with the "retina" crap, just call it "reasonable resolution". The fact that laptops stagnated ten years ago (and even regressed, in many cases) at around half that in both directions is just sad.

I still don't want big luggable laptops, but that 1366x768 is so last century. Christ, soon even the cellphones will start laughing at the ridiculously bad laptop displays.

And the next technology journalist that asks you whether you want fonts that small, I'll just hunt down and give an atomic wedgie. I want pixels for high-quality fonts, and yes, I want my fonts small, but "high resolution" really doesn't equate "small fonts" like some less-than-gifted tech pundits seem to constantly think.

In fact, if you have bad vision, sharp good high-quality fonts will help. #noexcuses

Playfair Display’s latin script fonts are done in the main. Only some hinting issues to be weeded out and we are go.
