    Definitive List of Wortwhile Font Sites

    As part of trying to make this forum more of a resource, I would like a definitive list of all font sites which:

    1. Are useful
    2. Don't have too many ads
    3. Don't require you to jump through hoops to get the font you want

    These include sites which allow fonts for download, font-related tools, etc.

    sites:

    www.acidfonts.com
    www.fontmonster.com
    www.fontguy.com
    www.blambot.com
    www.eliteentertainment.net/famousfonts
    www.1001fonts.com
    www.chank.com
    www.wantedfonts.com
    www.pizzadude.dk
    bitmap fonts

    tools:

    http://www.whatthefont.com (image based font recognition)
    http://www.identifont.com (Q & A based font recognition)

    just an extension of the chank.com link, most of the guys that make up chanks army have pretty decent sites and a fair few freebie fonts.

    This is a really good website with fonts you can download for free - you are even able to download the entire collection of his own fonts.

    http://www.pizzadude.dk/ from Chanks Army and http://www.fontisland.com are my additional faves.

    For Bitmaps : http://www.dsg4.com/04/extra/bitmap/index.html is awesome.

    I agree with everyone above, especially Chank's site, but here are some more good ones:

    http://www.galapagosdesign.com/index.html
    (mostly commercial but they offer a very nice free dingbat font)

    http://www.sketchpad.net/b1.htm
    (LOTS of nice free fonts)

    http://www.apostrophiclab.com/
    (same as above, fonts by the great Graham Mead among others, and lots of them, all free)

    http://www.fonthead.com/index.html
    (Mostly commercial but good prices on bundles. Home of the famous Good Dog/Good Dog Cool free fonts)

    http://www.astigmatic.com/
    (The famous Astigmatic OneEye site. Commercial and a nice collection of free fonts)
    You might as well fall flat on your
    face as bend too far over
    backwards.

    Well for font tools, do the following 2 deserve a place?

    posted this on another thread a second ago, and yes, the selection is minimal...but FontShop (which has a huge array of excellent commercial fonts) has some free fonts for download at http://www.fontshop.com/virtual/inde...free_downloads

    This is absolutely THE best font site i've discovered in a long time. Not only for shear size/choice, but because it has ONLY the best selection, AND it's very well designed & organized.

    DaFONT - Download the best in free and shareware fonts!

    I give this site an A+ rating!

    DaFont.com is my personal choice, also.

    Seems that they recently went and put pop-ups on the site, so remember to bring your pop-up stopper along.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks for the list. These sites are great! (Except for Acid Fonts - too many popups)

    Though the focus is more on typography as an artform/sector of design than the end product of a "font", I find this an invaluable resource for keeping up with things: http://typographi.ca/

    I'm interested in Calligraphy fonts... the more ornate the better. Any ideas for these? I've checked out several of the font links listed but not a lot of success.

    Thanks
