License-Free Typefaces: Vitaly Friedman's Top 20

Minsk-born Vitaly Friedman, tired of having to use the same old fonts or worst, having to pay for new, original ones, went on a week-long search to find free great alternative typefaces to use. He came up with a Top 20 list and promptly posted it onto his blog, all to be considered as freeware. The typefaces presented vary from simple designs like David Perrys' Cardo to more embellished ones like Just Old Fashion by Manfred Klein.

Once you download the package, you will need to open the file with WinZip (Windows) or Stuffit Expander (Macintosh) to expand the archives. Inside the archive are the font files and a "Read Me" file which includes basic instructions for installing the fonts.

Most of the fonts listed are licence-free, meaning you can use them either for personal or commercial purposes at no cost. But just like Friedman suggests, it's best to check out the disclaimers before downloading them if you want to use them for commercial use, as these may often change.
