    A great mix of both contemporary and traditional classics —well curated. I’m glad to see a fellow appreciator of http://www.losttype.com they really do have a strong collection. Leaving aside the free and cheaply available for a second, I have recently invested in a small selection of Klim Type Foundry fonts which are just fantastically crafted and a pleasure to use —these I’ll be going back to again and again! Available on http://vllg.com/Klim

    What a fab list, I’ve alwasy been fond of Archer! If your a type lover and want to take it a step further check out the typography forum at http://type.is/good ! I think it’s invite only or subscription based, but they have quite a terrific collection that can help you determine which font to use on your project too.
