Free Fonts Of The Month: Myndraine, Museo Sans

Advertisement

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 5 free high-quality fonts and collections of grunge and handwritten fonts. Please read the license agreements carefully — they can change from time to time.

  • Last episode1 features Fertigo Pro and FF Nuvo,
  • You can find over 80 more free fonts in our section Fonts2.

The Fell Types19
A set of free modern revival fonts, with ligatures, swash characters, and ornaments, digitalized by Igino Marini. “The Fell Types took their name from John Fell, a Bishop of Oxford in the seventeenth-century. Not only he created an unique collection of printing types but he started one of the most important adventures in the history of typography.

You will find here a non-exhaustive history and a modern digitalization of some of them. If you want to use it in publications on any kind of media you have to put in the following quote as a note: «The Fell Types are digitally reproduced by Igino Marini. www.iginomarini.com» and let the designer know where you used it.
