  25. “When you add an East Asian font family to your

    kit, it will automatically become what we call a dynamic kit. In a dynamic kit, you’ll have a new Character Set option in the kit editor called Dynamic Subsetting. When your dynamic kit JavaScript loads in the browser, it will detect your page’s character usage and request a dynamic subset for the glyphs needed for each member of the family. This makes for very small fonts, with incredibly fast load times.” -Adobe typekit blog Dynamic subsetting http:/ /blog.typekit.com/2015/06/15/announcing-east-asian-web-font-support/ C H I N E S E D E S I G N for W E S T E R N E R S @ L U G O T Y P E LU Y U luyu.co
