I typically pay at least $100, and usually quite a bit more, for a
professional typeface.

And frankly I think that's a bargain if it really is a professional,
complete typeface. $100 typefaces tend to be pretty awful.

But then, these days when it comes to any part of the publishing process
"cheap" seems to matter so much more than "good". I cringe when I see how
most commercial books are typeset these days.

Sorry, in danger of getting OT here .
