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.

Adult Human Male
Adult Human Male is the typefoundry of Malaysian designer Alex Hy, who is located in Berlin or Ireland. His Twitter account says that he is New York, Paris and Coolock. His Dafont account calls him Irish. Whatever. Alex has two aspects, a commercial one, expressed in his commercial foundry Adult Human Male, and a free one via his Squack site on Dafont.
The commercial Alex created the grunge stencil typeface Butterworth (2011), the hand-drawn Teksi (2011), the monoline squarish family Ebdus (2011), Valis (2011, futuristic), and the thin avant garde monoline typeface New Slang (2011). Gordito (2011) is a graffiti style bubble font that says Smurf.
In 2012, Alex published the poster caps typeface Areaman, Stink Lines (multilined typeface) and Penang (art deco signage typeface seen on Penang by the creator). Straights Light is a beautiful pair of bilined all caps faces. Dale Kids is a children's book typeface. Hokkien (2012) is an art deco typeface with Chinese influences. Mister Mustard is a chubby rounded art deco typeface. Barkley (2012) is a textured caps typeface with a chalk board feel. Liner Notes (2012) is a bilined hand-drawn typeface. Bartleby (2012) is a hand-drawn all caps display font.
The free font foundry Squack has the hand-printed faces Barker Allcaps (2012), Scrapist (2012, sketched), Billy Boy (2011, 3d), Quito Chicken (2011, 3d), Fred Wild West (2011, a grungy western face), Coolock Black (2011), Zapftig (2011), Ringworm (2011), Suicide Draft (2011), National Granite (2011, a 3d stone chisel face), Whiskey Fingers (2010), Wank Hands (2010) and Middle Man (2010), and the irregular faces Zapftig (2011), Shock Corridor, Pollo Asado, Middle Woman, Ghost Words, Late Puberty, Parrannoyed (2010, ransom note face), the hairline typeface Rexic (2011), Black Grapes (2012), Chump (2012, hand-printed capitals), Areman OT (2012), and the grungy Skidmarks (2012).
Typefaces from 2013: Salas (a chunky cartoon face), Rabid (a crayon font), Strokin (a great brush face---part charcoal part paint strokes), Bevel Hands, Bunk (a layered beveled type system absed on a monoline fat rounded sans, Bunk Base 2), Spengler (inline face), Vastra (Bauhaus style, organic), Swingers (curly and cartoonish), Chump Change, Treves Sans (crayon face).
We read that the fonts are designed by EircomTest. Aka Squack, MiddleMan and Alex H.

Ananda Das tells the type 3 story: Type 3 is an almost-obsolete format once very popular because it was the only way for non-Adobe folks to produce PostScript fonts in the old days. The font technology was generally considered inferior because it did not allow hinting to make the fonts reproduce well on 300-dpi laser printers, although they generally were fine on filmsetters. Adobe kept the proprietary secret of how to make Type 1 fonts to themselves, so that they could sell the best-looking fonts. This, together with Adobe's then-high royalties for PostScript itself, annoyed Apple and Microsoft, so they developed TrueType as an alternative to PostScript. Learning of this development, Adobe's John Warnock publicly released the Type 1 spec so that anyone could make such a font. Thereafter, almost no Type 3 fonts were ever made. But Type 3 fonts did have some capabilities of their own, not shared with Type 1 fonts. They allowed shading and textures, as well as "random" substitution of particular glyphs, as Alan rightly pointed out. If you want to see some Type 3 fonts, they are probably still widely available at FTP freeware/shareware sites, usually under "PostScript" headings, sometimes under "PostScript Type 3".

Walter Bernard "Ben" Hunt (b. 1888, Greenfield, WI, d. 1970) was an American artist, outdoor educator and author. His books covered native American arts, woodworking, scouting, pioneering, jewelry making, metalworking, and calligraphy. Quoting wikipedia: Hunt was born in Greenfield, Wisconsin and grew up in a log cabin. He attended Milwaukee's South Division High School, but did not graduate, dropping out to become lithographic engraver at the Bruce Publishing Company. Hunt moved to Hales Corners, Wisconsin with his wife, Laura, in 1920. In 1924, Hunt, along with his father-in-law and brother, Edwin C. Hunt, built a log cabin behind his home. The cabin, a 16x28-foot structure, made of tamarack logs, was the subject of Hunt's first article, How We Built Our Log Cabin. During the late 1930s, Hunt began to study the work of Native American artists. As part of his research, Hunt met with artists and leaders such as Nick Black Elk, Frank Smart (or Chief Gogeoweosh), and James F. "Buck" Burshears. Hunt shared his knowledge of "Indian lore" with Milwaukee's boy scout leaders and, in 1942, Hunt started writing articles for Boy's Life. He became a regular member of its staff, ultimately writing over 1,000 articles. Hunt's work for Boy's Life, led him to serve on the staff of the National Boy Scout Jamboree in 1950, 1953, 1957, and 1960.
Edwin and Ben Hunt published Fifty Alphabets (1931), Lettering of Today (1935, revised in 1941), 60 Alphabets (1935, Bruce Publishing), and 101 Alphabets (1954, 1958). Several digital typefaces resulted from those publications. Grouped by type designer:

Pandemic comes with the following chilling story: On Vozrozhdeniya Island in the Aral Sea, the strongest recipes of smallpox were tested. Suddenly I was informed that there were mysterious cases of mortalities in Aralsk. A research ship of the Aral fleet came to within 15 km of the island (it was forbidden to come any closer than 40 km). The lab technician of this ship took samples of plankton twice a day from the top deck. The smallpox formulation---400 gr. of which was exploded on the island---"got her" and she became infected. After returning home to Aralsk, she infected several people including children. All of them died. I suspected the reason for this and called the Chief of General Staff of Ministry of Defense and requested to forbid the stop of the Alma-Ata Moscow train in Aralsk.

Born in Lincoln, UK, in 1942, Ted Staunton now lives near Vancouver, and designs type. After serving a five-year apprenticeship as a hand compositor (1958-1963) with the Lincolnshire Publishing Co., he spent three years (1963-1966) at Leicester College of Art&Design, graduating in type design. After spending some time in London working for Penguin, Hamlyn and other book publishing houses, he emigrated to Canada in 1970, working for Mitchell Press and Hemlock Printers in Vancouver before opening his own design business and letterpress printing shop, Sherwood Graphics, in 1984. In 1991 he published a private press book, The Lincolnshire Poacher, illustrated with his own wood-engravings. He is lives in Surrey, BC. Some of his fonts were used privately on transfer lettering sheets and cast in metal for hand typesetting at his private press, Sherwood Letterpress.
At P22, he designed the semi-gothic font P22 Tyndale (2002) and Tyndale Extras (2002). In 2003, P22 launched Staunton's Sherwood Type Collection, a beautiful collection of revivals: Afton (2003), Albemarle (2008: connected script), Albion (2003), Albion Italic, Amelia (2003: ornamental caps in the style of William Morris), Aragon (2003), Avocet Light (2000: chancery script), Canterbury (2006, +Caps A, Caps B, Caps C, Pro), Elven (2003), Floriat (2003: floriated ornaments), Founders (2003), Freely (2002), Kaz (2008, between architecture and Comic Sans), P22 Kelly Pro (2009, Celtic style uncial), Latimer (2002), Lindum (2000), Mayflower (2002: medieval lettering), Mayflower Italic, Mayflower Smooth (2009), Mercian (2003), Phantasmagoria (2006: Celtic influences), Plymouth (2001), Roanoke Script (2002, a rough texture typeface; Albemarle is the smooth version), 1722 roman (2002), 1722 italic, Sherwood (2002), Sparrow (2001), Symphony (1995), Tyndale, and Tyndale Xtras.
In 2005, he published the Staunton Script family at P22. This package includes handwritten style typefaces that simulate the period spanning between the English Civil War (1640s) and the Victorian Era (1839-1901): Virginian, Royalist, Grosvenor, Grenville, Elizabethan, Broadwindsor, Chatham. In 2009, just in time for Halloween, he created P22 Spooky. P22 Ruffcut was designed in 2012.
In 2014, Ted Staunton finished P22 Amelia Jayne which has a classical roman, with several sets of initial caps.

The Coueignoux system
Nicolas Fabian writes: In the Coueignoux system, custom software combines predefined graphic component parts to form finished characters. This concept was the basis of his doctoral thesis "Generation of Roman Printed Fonts" in 1975 at MIT. In addition to synthetic type generation, Dr. Philippe J. M. Coueignoux also did original research on Perspective Mapping of Planar Surfaces, Texture Mapping, Anti-Aliasing, Optical Character Recognition (OCR), and other advanced graphic subjects.

Velvetyne Type Foundry (or: VTF)
Velvetyne Type Foundry (or VTF) is the French foundry of Parisian Frank Adebiaye. It used to be called Velvetyne TypeForgery because he uses FontForge to design all his free fonts, which come complete with FontForge sources. Originally, it had many free fonts by Frank Adebiaye himself. At some point, it became more of a coop, and started publishing experimental typefaces by several contributors and collaborators. These fonts are reported elsewhere on my pages under the names of their designers.
