Ten Free Fonts from 2011

There have been a raft of quality free fonts released over the course of 2011, perhaps encouraged by the explosion in the use of web fonts, either way it’s great news for typography lovers like myself. Here are my personal favorites over the last year.

If there are suggested donation/pay what you want options on any pages for these fonts please consider showing your appreciation.

A gorgeous modern sans-serif with a very long neck. With a whole slew of styles & weights:
