Top 10 Not-Free Fonts With so much attention placed on so-called "free" fonts these days, this list hearkens the subject at hand: fonts. Period. Digital typefaces spawning new renditions by today's designers, some worthy contributions, as well as some less respectable "knock-off" varieties.

Regardless of recent trends, these fonts are timeless, and unsurpassed in their perfection. They do not disprove the notion, that the quality of purchase-ware fonts eclipses that of freeware fonts . From the many legions of beautiful fonts, this list is "Nymphont's Top 10 Not-Free Fonts."
