Can I buy a variable font?

We're looking to license for web Minion Variable for a client's main website. Is this possible? Also Adobe, it's ridiculous that I have to ask this in a forum instead of calling or emailing someone.

Unfortunately, our Variable Concept fonts (such as Minion Variable Concept) are not yet commercially available. For the time being, they are only available to use within Illustrator and Photoshop. The Source Variable fonts available at GitHub (https://github.com/adobe-fonts) are all we have available for the web.

If you have further questions you're welcome to email font support directly at support@typekit.com.

Best regards,

Molly

Regardless of availability of variable fonts, you might want to be cautious about use of such fonts for websites given that not all popular browsers either fully or even partially support their use as intended.
