Typotheque is a type foundry and design studio from The Hague, Netherlands [1] that develops and markets original typefaces. In October 2009, Typotheque became the first type foundry to introduce the concept of webfonts.[1] The typefaces sold under the Typotheque foundry label are mostly designed by Peter Biľak, including the popular [2] Fedra Sans and Fedra Serif font families. Typotheque specializes in creation of Latin and non-Latin fonts (Cyrillic, Greek, Arabic, Hebrew) and publishes books, such as We Want You To Love Type [3], bi-annual independent art/design publication Dot Dot Dot, or the magazine of unexpected creativity Works That Work.

Typotheque's work has been profiled in the design publications Abitare, Cap & Design, Designum, Druk, Dwell, Etapes, Emigre, I.D., Idea, Novum, Page, Print, Publish, and tipoGrafica. Typotheque's work has been recognized by the Type Directors Club [4].
