Every now and again we take a look around, select fresh high-quality free fonts and present them to you in a brief overview. The choice is enormous, so the time you need to find them is usually the time you should be investing in your current projects. We search for them and we find them, so you don’t have to.
This month we are glad to present you Goudy Bookletter 1911, Advent Pro, Ambrosia, Andale Mono, Telegrafico, Fonce Sans Regular and the Luxi Font Family. Please read the license agreements carefully – they can change from time to time.
Free Fonts Of The Month
A fresh, modern typeface coming in 7 weights — bold, bold extra, regular rounded, regular, regular oblique, light and light extra. Commercial work containing this typeface must include the reference to the author; personal projects don’t neccessary need to have a reference. The advanced version of the font can be purchased.
Andale Mono is a highly legible monospaced font which was originally distributed as part of the Internet Explorer 4.0 add-ons page as Monotype.com. It distinguishes well between the zero, and the O. You can find 4 further monospaced fonts in Hamish Macpherson’s article The Typography of Code11. You might want to check out 22 more Monospaced/Fixed Width Programmer’s Fonts12 as well.
Fonce Sans Regular17
A sans-serif typeface that includes old style (hanging) numbers, a number of english and non-english lettering, some additional symbols and complete punctuation. This typeface is considered a Trial Version, in which certain letterforms have been replaced. Available only for non-commercial use as .otf. The advanced version of the font can be purchased.
This typeface is being released as a sort of “beta,” in which people might become accustomed to the typeface and also voice their opinions on its usability.
Luxi fonts are commonly found on free software operating systems, such as Linux. They are the default fonts in Red Hat’s Bluecurve theme. This family includes Luxi Sans, a family of four sans-serif fonts, Luxi Serif, a family of four serif fonts and Luxi Mono, a family of four monospace fonts. These fonts can be downloaded using OpenOffice.org‘s FontOOo wizard. (via Chris Apalodimas)
