Free Fonts Of The Month: Advent Pro, Telegrafico

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.

  • You can find over 70 more free fonts in our section Free Fonts1.

    I’m really digging Advent. Thanks for letting me know that there was such a nice repository of fonts on DeviantArt — I never knew! I guess I was too busy looking at the, um, artistic nudes. (Oh, and the wallpapers, too!)

    Thanks again for your Val & Times Day present.

    Here’s a question for the masses: What have you found to be a better fitting (for tight fits) face than MyriadPro condensed?

    Thanks again for all your hard work here at teamSmash
