Free Fonts by Jos Buivenga (Exljbris)

ABSOLUTELY FREE FONTS by Jos Buivenga (Exljbris)


Anivers comes in regular, small caps, italics and bold.
The New Anivers is used by Smashing Magazines on their 1st anniversary.


Special attention was given to character spacing to obtain a homogenic appearance. With it's relatively large x-height the Delicious can be used for text in smaller point sizes.


Diavlo is a free font that contains 5 weights: Light, Book, Medium, Bold and Black.


Fertigo has undergone a major update and is now called Fertigo Pro.


The Fontin is designed to be used at small sizes. The color is darkish, the spacing loose and the x-height tall.


The Fontin Sans is designed by Jos Buivenga to be a suitable sans companion of Fontin. With a nice classical appearance it will be a perfect match.


Museo is an Open Type font family comes in five weights and offers supports CE languages and even esperanto. This type has ligatures, contextual alternatives, stylistic alternates, fractions and proportional/tabular figures and also has a 'case' feature for case sensitive forms.


Museo Sans is based on the well-known Museo. It is a sturdy, low contrast, geometric, highly legible sans serif typeface very well suited for any display and text use.


Tallys is a font that is one degree slanted and has large caps, a small x-height and long ascenders. It comes (see also Fontin) with hybrid numbers and a complete character set.

You can also buy some of his fonts at myfonts.

  1. These are nice. I frequently use Diavlo and Fontin.

  2. hi Pat,
    yeah, i like the Diavlo too, the font itself has a character :) but i think this one is suite for logotype, while the Fontin and Fontin-sans are good for brochures. what do you think?
