The idea of having this web page came from a remark by Character regarding Claude's Moncure font not having any credits. Those who do not drop by alt.binaries.fonts will not have any idea on who created the font.
This web page will try to assemble the free fonts posted in the newsgroup alt.binaries.fonts by the person who created the font, or, possibly, in behalf of that person. The web page will also include the message that accompanies the posting, even if blank, to document the font and its creator. Any other relevant newsgroup messages will also be included.
The fonts on this web site are presented in a manner different to what you might be accustomed to in a fonts site. To help sort the confusion, we prepared a list of all fonts on the site that are arranged alphabetically, by font authors, and font formats. We also notice that a good number of visitors come here looking for football fonts, so we prepared a list of all football fonts to make them easier to find. The Extra tab has other things that might interest you.
Consider all fonts downloaded from abfonts as free for personal, non-commercial use only unless otherwise specified in the newsgroup message, in an accompanying file and/or in the font itself. Get in touch directly with font authors to inquire about the use of a font for commercial purposes.
