    Metropolis will find some use on my website in the near future!

    Really nice selection, loving the retro fonts! Favourite has to be Barkentina.

    These are really really nice, but I think the title is a bit off since about half of these require a minimum $5 donation. Not that there is anything wrong with a $5 donation for an amazing font, but I just wanted to point out that the title was a bit misleading

    Nice list of friebies but there’s 2 – in my opinion – really nice fonts missing.
    Source Code Pro and Source Sans Pro – two free fonts from Adobe.

    Superb, can never have enough good fonts. Always makes me want to design some new graphics just to use them. Thanks!
