    How to speed up loading of fonts

    Is there a way to make the fonts on this site: Richard Clunan - Copywriter - load more quickly?

    When I clear my browsing data and load the site, the handwriting font at the top of the site loads quickly, as does the menu tabs font (neither of which are standard fonts); but the font that the body copy is in takes a few seconds to load. For those few seconds, the body text displays in a different font.

    The fonts taking time to load are Arno Pro and Arno Pro Italic.

    A guy added those fonts recently. He wrote additional/new CSS styles in the styles.css file and he says he doesn’t know of a way to speed up their loading, as the browser needs to download the fonts.

    But other sites that use non standard fonts load more quickly.

    Those fonts are huge. 1.7Mb each. Try running them through the Font Squirrel generator on the "optimal" setting. Probably won't help too much. I would really suggest finding a similar font with a smaller file size.
