I am literally speechless. Browsing through my logs and exploring the links leading to "25 Best License-Free Quality Fonts", I accidentally discovered a post in a Dutch blog linking to two pure masterpieces of typography - two typofaces, presented by a talented Dutch designer Jos Buivenga. Delicious and Fontin - two unique, delightful, delicious, license-free beauties, which definitely will make a lasting positive impression on the visitors of your web-projects.

Delicious: Description (contact the author to download the font) Delicious Delicious

Fontin: Description (contact the author to download the font) Fontin Fontin

Both fonts are freeware. Jos Buivenga is sending his fonts via e-mail-requests. So make sure you are the first asking Jos for his delicious fonts. However, there is a small, tiny and extremely unpleasant "but" for me. Both fonts are Mac-fonts only; so if you aren't a Mac-user, you shouldn't visit Jos' page at the first place. For once you took a look at it, you will never excuse yourself for not having a Mac.

By the way, any ideas how one could use the fonts on a not-Mac-PC? Comment on this article!
