Sample of Fertigo font.Jos has produced a number of beautiful typefaces free to download. I particularly like the subtle quirks of Delicious and the flowing curves of Fertigo (sample shown_ but also check out some of the others available too.


These fonts were previously commercial and designed for the Greek alphabet and the four fonts available – Canonica, Cosmetica, Modata, Moderna – look great in the Latin alphabet too.
