This post pulls together a mix of font styles that will suit a variety of projects, including serif, sans-serif, slab-serif and a couple of script fonts. Not only are they all free to download, but they can all be used commercially too.

  42. Batfan says:

    Great post, Chris. A lot of my favorites here. I’m addicted to using ‘League Gothic’.

  43. Teresa says:

    League Gothic has changed my life. I begin, like, every design with it now. I REALLY need to pick something else. But I love it. Funny, just wrote a post bemoaning the over use of Museo. Love it, too, but I see it way too often now. Thanks for sharing. I see one or two I need to check out. I would also add the free font Lavosier. I find it extremely workable.

  44. Free Vectors says:

    Most of them new for me. Display images clean and nice.

  45. Cameron says:
