Ten Fun, Free Fonts

When "Arial or Times Roman?" becomes as dull a question as "paper
or plastic?" it's time to find a font that will make your words
pop. These attractive fonts range from stately Gothic blackletter
to streaky Gonzo art homage. Some are easy to picture on movie
posters, some on heavy metal concert tees, some on restaurant
menus. None of them costs a dime.

Predatoric 2 | Free
Predatoric 2 is a movie homage font that isn't afraid to hide in
plain sight.
http:// lm .pcworld .com/t/1224753/6321235/122033/0/

Mister Pablo | Free
This TrueType font enters the blackletter line-up with crisp
styling, and an impressive past.
http:// lm .pcworld .com/t/1224753/6321235/122034/0/

High Voltage | Free
Condensed width and crisp styling make this rocked-out TrueType
script font look its best in the spotlight.
