Free fonts for more interesting typography…

Google Fonts is a library of over 900 libre licensed fonts which you can use freely on your website. Google Fonts has an interactive web directory for browsing the library by filtering for the particular type of typeface you’d like eg serif, sans serif, display, handwriting and monospace (a font whose letters and characters each occupy the same amount of horizontal space).

Helvetica and Times New Roman joke

Google Fonts also include options for different weights and styles (italic, bold, light, etc) so the possibilities are broad.

So, don’t just settle for Arial, Times New Roman and Helvetica – try something different!

Google Fonts has APIs for conveniently using the fonts via CSS and Android so it’s pretty easy to add to your website.

To cap it all Google Fonts is completely free unlike fonts.com and other typeface websites.
