    I love this free stuff, but I´ve got one question. Why arent there links like “download all” on these posts. I dont mean to be ungratefull, but going to 50 sites and downloading is a lot of work.

    Are there rights issues to this?

    Thanks again.

    These are great. But what about the work of Eduardo Recife of Misprinted Type? This guy’s a genius and his free fonts are extremely popular.

    @gummisig – That would make it nice for our readers, but it’s important to reward the owners with a link back to their site.

    Nice collection, I quite like “Broken Ghost”, its quite grunge but at the same time, quite clean so it has a good range of uses.

    And as I always say, you can never have enough fonts under your belt ;)

    Rock on! Hey, I’m new to this. How do I download these fonts to use when creating powerpoints and postcards? Do you know of any animated grunge fonts? Like having the words tweak a little? Like I said, I’m new and don’t quite know my way around yet. Thanks for the collection. I already have a couple of favorites.
