An Introduction

Purists scorn at the very word, 'font', because Arial, Bold, 18 pt. is a font. Arial, by itself is a 'typeface'. However, Microsoft and Apple have succeeded in changing the rules within their omnipresent operating systems. So it's 'font', as of now!

Digitization of fonts has caused a revolution of sorts. Anyone with basic design knowledge and access to a font editor can create them. And there are tons of fonts available completely free. You can also create your own fonts free of cost on sites like FontStruct. Old timers will remember that something as omnipresent as CorelDRAW also allows you to create elementary fonts.


Font Foundries And Stores provides several high quality fonts for all occasions and projects.

The Adobe Type Library is a great source for many classic and contemporary typefaces.

MonoType has a huge font library. Their site has details about the history of each font.
