Font of the Week: Merriweather

I first discovered Merriweather when The Daily Post revamped their design. Since then, I believe in love at first sight. It’s become my favourite serif font, besides Liberation Serif and Bitter. The best thing about Merriweather is its top-notch readability. It looks gorgeous everywhere from web pages to printed documents. Check this:
