Font is League Gothic by The League of Movable Type Fonts

Yours, yes, all yours. And mine as well, thanks to the beauty of Free Software.

I have been collating a collection of Free Fonts, so that I can give them away with Free Software at my workshops. I can also promote them on my web site, as well as use them as @font-faces whilst designing web sites. Font Squirrel has been an invaluable resource, as has the Google Font Directory. And I am really bowled over by how many Free Fonts I have managed to magpie.

37

Yep, 37. Count them:

Bitstream Vera Sans, Bitstream Vera Sans Mono, Bitstream Vera Serif, Cantarell, Cardo, Crimson Text, DejaVu Sans, DejaVu Serif, Droid Sans, Droid Sans Mono, Droid Serif, Gentium, GNU FreeFont, IM Fell, Inconsolata, Josefin Sans Std Light, Junicode, League Gothic, Liberation Mono, Liberation Sans, Liberation Serif, Linux Libertine, Lobster, Luxi Mono, Luxi Sans, Luxi Serif, M+ 1c, M+ 1m, Molengo, Nobile, OFL Sorts Mill Goudy, Old Standard TT, Reenie Beanie, Tangerine, Ubuntu Title Font, Vollkorn, Yanone Kaffeesatz

I even found out about FontForge, the “Open Source postscript font editor”, which I downloaded in the blink of an eye for Ubuntu Linux.

The final, added bonus is that I’ve bundled up all the fonts for you to download (watch out though if you’re on dialup as the file size is 19MB-ish).
