Very nice & lengthy collection of quality free fonts. Thanks!

Daisy Dec 16 2008

I have most of these but the first few sans serif’s are fantastic, especially Beziden. It’s exactly what I’m looking for at the minute.

I’ll be a hero when I show this at work in the morning!

Jim Gaudet Dec 16 2008

Honestly, I can never have enough fonts.. The funny thing is, its like TV, all the stations and I can still never find what I want..

Some great fonts in here. Excellent post.

Jacob Gube Dec 17 2008

@Daisy: How funny is that? I was just talking about Beziden (as a potential replacement for the current Six Revisions logo). Glad this collection helped!

Robyn Dec 17 2008

Really? Scanning your handwriting or bastardizing and sodomizing Garamond is beautiful? This is why type designers are not taken seriously.

insic Dec 17 2008

wow cool fonts. thanks for sharing

Simon Vallee Dec 17 2008

Great roundup. Now delicioused. :)

“Times New Yorker” – clever.

Timothy Long Dec 17 2008

GOOD GRIEF that’s a nice roundup.

emmanuel Dec 17 2008

Are you kidding ? These fonts are awful and the ones that work with it should try Comic Sans. Free fonts are not the designer’s friend. Un seul mot : amateurisme.

Phil Cook Dec 17 2008

Nice, free fonts are always welcome. Shame I am blocked for most of these sites at work :(

I will get them at home later.

Many thanks

Simon Dec 17 2008

Reznor Broken and Ambrosia are really nice sans-serif fonts
I love typography – it makes a website

Dietmar Dec 17 2008

Wow, awesome list, very nice fonts! Thanks for this list!

Youandigraphics Dec 17 2008

Great fonts!’Share’ and ‘Karabine’ are my favourites

Kevin Brown Dec 17 2008

I can never get my hands on enough fonts! I have most of these, but nevertheless, great list!

Really I don’t like your choice of free fonts (apart from one or two of them). A better choice of free professional fonts was published at Smashing Magazine

Thank you, anyhow.

spyder Dec 17 2008

Thank you so much. Always love more fonts.

And I don’t know why you hate on free fonts. If it works and the client likes it…why not?

How about post a link to some great fonts that you have to buy. I would like to see the difference.

Patareco Dec 17 2008

Nice Fonts! Already knew some!

Angelina is great, and metro retro is a classic

love the collection ! busy downloading !

Navdeep Dec 17 2008

Thanks for the collection

Chris W. Dec 17 2008

Jacob. Brotha. Some of these are weak. American Dreams? Groove Machine? Metro Retro? I would replace those with Museo, Museo Sans and Knife Fight, fo’ show.

p@r@noid Dec 17 2008

great list!

jyoseph Dec 18 2008

lol Chris, yeah great list indeed but I draw the line at Groove Machine. :P

aniec2 Dec 19 2008

Loveable Scruff link doesn’t work!

Nathan Longbrook Dec 19 2008

This is a great list! I have a few of them, but just added some of the others to my collection. Thanks for posting these!

Mohd. Aleem Dec 20 2008

Thanks for the help of my beautiful font selection.
i like these fonts, very much.

Thanks again.

Mike Seidle Dec 20 2008

I absolutely love the fonts. Great free type isn’t so easy to find.

Ack, some of these are terrible. Some are great, sure, but… urgh. I’m no designer’s designer, but if I caught a peer using a few of these fonts, I’d have to shut ’em down.

Vasili Dec 20 2008

Great fonts. Cicle and Angelina have to be my favorites, but I found a couple new ones I love. Thanks! :)

Miaowei Dec 21 2008

very good

Jacob Gube Dec 21 2008

@aniec2: Fixed it, sorry about that. It was only the image that wasn’t working.

Tom Kenny Dec 22 2008

Some excellent fonts there especially considering they’re free. Thanks.

Allison Dec 22 2008

Over 50% of these are hideous.

Tyasske Dec 26 2008

A point: Advent Pro is beautiful, but it’s not hand drawn. The preview image is only a sketch from the font’s designer.
