Default Another source of shareware fonts

If you find yourself looking for an old shareware font (or want to see what new ones are being produced), check out Typoasis, a well-organized repository of many older fonts (including the Davy Rakowski’s; the old Casady & Greene Fluent Laser Fonts; and fonts by Stephen Moye, author of the book on Fontographer).

There are also more recent fonts, including the Apostrophic Lab collection, fonts by Manfred Klein, a collection based on Rudolf Koch’s work, and a mixed bag (some of them not his) by Dieter Steffmann (Terrie will need to avoid his site, though — probably very dangerous place for her!)

Most of the fonts are stored as PC TT versions in zip files (a few have Mac and/or Type 1 fonts instead or as well). They vary wildly in quality, but some are quite interesting.
