    according to this site there are 300 essential fonts http://www.goodfonts.org/
    As a web designer, you know that Verdana can get real old real fast. But you also know that there are millions of free fonts on the internet and most of them are horribly bad. Here's a secret: not all truetype fonts are bad. Some of them are quite classy. The truth is you dont have to be rich and able to afford postscript fonts in order to look professional.

    I've collected 300 of my favorite truetype fonts that can be used for design works. Here they are free to download in .ttf format (works on both MacOSX and Windows machines), organized into the following categories.



    A diverse selection of fonts with distinctive type. Best used for headlines, logos or posters.
    Type "without feet". Lends a clean, simple appearance to text.

    Short cross lines at the end of characters make serif fonts easy to recognize.

    Fonts where letters run into each other. Italic or "leaning" text.

    Pen and pencil, brushstroke, or kids handwriting fonts. Relaxed and casual.
    Worn and weathered, grungy, victorian, or historical typefaces.


    Wacky and fun typefaces good for eclectic

    It actually ended up being 247 fonts I think. Several of the links didn't work. Oh well, still a good collection. Those put me at just over 5,100 fonts.

    nice skiz
    saved me the trouble of visiting all those fkn links

    think I have most of those already, but some I don't,
    this can kinda 'round out the collection' I guess



    -edit- my ass is better than yours

    The problem is that unless you use them to create pictures inside Fireworks or something, you shouldn't use them in the normal web text, because almost noone have them, so they will be replaced... and there's go your layout!


    You have two choices in life:
    1- Relax
    2- Bump your head into the wall

    Choose...
