KdbFFonts/Book / Free Fonts Compendium


Are there any good free fonts? Where to find the best? Is there any inspiration in a font that might seem strange and alienating to some folks? How to make use of free fonts?
The book is an incomplete compendium of the most impressing, interesting, bizarre, beautiful, ugly and usable free fonts. It was collaboratively created by the experimental typography course. A collection of ten free fonts had been individually assembled by each student, while each collection is separated by its sheets' colors.
This book should act as a tool, a reference, a catalogue – simply put – it should inspire.
