Open Source Fonts

It’s been 13 years since I posted about open source, and often free, fonts. I previously titled such a post “free fonts,” but that is not terribly precise. Also, I don’t want to confuse further anyone reading this post: there are a lot of “free fonts” out there, some of which are legitimately free and some of which may not be so free. Creating a good type face is no trivial matter, and releasing one for free is a labor of love. Gentium remains an amazing accomplishment, and there are a number of type face creators who release things for free, some of whom you can discover through Google Fonts. To these resources, I would like to add the Velvetyne Type Foundry.
