    Thanks for posting this. There are a huge array of fonts on GWF and, frankly, I get tired of looking at them to choose what fonts I’d like to use.
    The collection you show here are excellent, clear and readable but, above all else, noticeably different to the myriad sans and serifs which, a lot of the time, look very similar to each other (at least to me!).
