1001freefonts
[Jason Nolan]

Good-sized archive by Jason Nolan. Lots of bells and whistles. It gets hairy when he asks 10USD for a 2000-font download, and 20 USD for a 10,000-font download, charging for freeware and shareware fonts made by others. He writes in 2011: 1001 Free Fonts first opened its doors in December 1998 and has since grown to become the most popular free fonts archive online. We receive more than 50,000 visitors daily and have received 150,000,000 visitors since 1998. Over 3,000,000,000 free fonts have been downloaded since 1998.

Creator of Aerobus Dotty (2014, a halftone texture font), Dirty Old Town (2014), Ghost of the Wild West (2014), Fresco Stamp (2014), My type Of Font (2009, typewriter) and Emma Sophia (2009, hand-printed). Dafont link. It is interesting, but not surprising, that Monotype (+ITC) is a "partner site". [Google] [More]  ⦿

Arsenal Company

The old pages were shareware: Arsenal Font Collections Volumes 1 through 7 (25MB in total). With the new page, I have no idea any longer how to download.

Many of the fonts in the Arsenal collection were designed by W. Chufarofsky, and some jointly by W. Chufarofsky and I. Slutsker, ca. 1998. List of 1206 fonts that I compiled for the historic record. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Arts&Letters

Steve Polisky's 100+ archive. The fonts here are renamed fonts from elsewhere. The archive is a commercial hook to get you to buy other stuff (fonts, the BOSS Fonts Manager).

The headline of this page is jibberish: Cufon plug-in directory for the most commonly used in the world you've made the font from which you access all the fonts cufon file. Anyway, there are a few thousand fonts here. The majority of fpnt downloads are not functional. One can also manually download Cufon style font files. Plus: nice font previews.

Eagle Fonts

This archive has over 20,000 truetype fonts. However, it is slow, there are commercials, (Monotype again...) and downloads are not practical due to a convoluted system of download boxes. On the positive side, the fonts are nicely categorized. This is an archive for those who know what category they are looking for. Typophile discussion. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Tucows.com offers an unbelievable archive. Tons of functionality. I did not count the number of fonts, but it should be well over 3000. Previews nicely off-line!

Flash Kit

From Sydney, Mark Fennell's 1450 truetype font archive. Loaded with ads, cookies, pop-up windows and so forth, this is time-consuming. On the other hand, there is lots of information on each font.
