    Excellent resources to reference! Thank you for researching these and posting them.

    Another fantastic typography site / forum to find exclusive / new and foundry fonts is http://www.pilo.me
    It is the best private typography forum for graphic designers / typographers on the internet with an unbelievable amount of free fonts, premium fonts and exclusive typefaces. I believe it is an invite only site, similar to ffffound and behance, but a little more homegrown, personal and underground, but the content they have available is amazing. I also think it was just voted the best typography forum of 2009. Anyhow, check it out if you want, pilo.me

    Thank you again for the excellent information, long time reader first time poster. I will definitely be bookmarking this!

    I really love minimalist design and a good font is the key element to achieve it (but it’s true for cluttered design too !).
    The collection presented here is nice and useful, bookmark it !

    Great set, thanks! Unfortunately Mentone is asking for $90, unless I am mistaken, would love to get it for FREE. Am I missing something?

    Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing new fonts in resources such as this and I have found many this way. But why do I have to go through and download them all individually? If the fonts are 100% free, offer them all in a single zip download as well! :)

    • YouareRetarded

      They are already free, he took the time to find the free ones and put them all on one web page, you have to just go to the links and download and you are still complaining? GTFO.

    Great post, its funny how font plays such an important role in the look and feel of a website. The wrong font can throw the whole design out.
