10 Sweet Free Fonts for Making Zines!
I hope these are helpful! I haven't included really sketchy, "handwritten" type fonts even when they resemble the kind of hand-drawn style seen in zines, because, well, why not just do it by hand? I included free fonts that actually add to what you can do with your zine.
Note: The images for this post were lost (See Google Privacy Controls Suck: Or, Why There Are No Pictures Anymore.) Sorry! These are all great fonts and I hope you will still check them out.
Woodcut1: A free font with woodcut images of people and beasts. The font features art for lowercase letters a-i and uppercase A-C. Download
Vintage Erotique is a beautifully executed font with ladies and a few gentlemen lounging on the letters of the alphabet. Includes the full uppercase set. Download
Aierbazzi is a font with characters that look like twigs, grass, dry flowers, and branches. When typed into a program like Photoshop, each character overlays on top of the previous one, so that you get the "bunched" look seen above. When used in simpler programs like MS Paint, the characters print one after another. Download
Astrodings is a font with suns and moons and associated artwork. It is a big library, with images for all uppercase and lowercase letters and the numbers. Nice and clear at large and small sizes. Download
Loverboy has distressed heart letters for the uppercase set and a nice sort of rough set of plain capital letters for the lowercase set. Download
Pulse Sans Virgin is a rough, distressed, dynamic font with a heartbeat/barbed wire looking line running through the letters (and also the space/space bar, so you can use just the heartbeat line if you want.) Download
Hope you enjoyed this collection of zine fonts!
