Every designer knows that typography is one of the most important tools in his or her arsenal, but quality type can be horribly pricy. Don’t believe me? Check out Hoefler & Frere-Jones‘ set of fonts, which commonly start at $200+ per font family.

Now, don’t get me wrong. Type designers most definitely should be paid for their work. And the pricing at foundries like Hoefler & Frere-Jones is reasonable, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t also completely inaccessible for many new and underpaid designers. For anyone tight on money, there are solutions out there and Lost Type may be your best bet for free and inexpensive display fonts.

We’ve covered this issue & Lost Type’s solution in the past, but now there are plenty of new typefaces to check out. Here’s a handful of our favorites:
