A decorative heavy rounded headline sans-serif font


[edit] Description

Fifth Leg aims to be, in the words of designer Jakub Steiner:

  • a simplistic, technical sans serif.
  • heavy, rounded.
  • a headline font. ‘Close’ to Cholla Wide Bold.
  • low contrast.

[edit] Caveats

  1. Try to convince the author to do proper releases in distro-friendly versioned archives
  2. Build from sources
  3. There are two other fonts on that page, but without any licensing info whatsoever. Google says they used to be redistributed by ximian under the LGPL. If their licensing could be confirmed it would probably be a good idea to package them too.
