These are the 40 best free web fonts available on Google Fonts, in my humble opinion. They are all open-source and 100% free for commercial use. This collection focuses on typeface families from reputable type designers and foundries that contain multiple weights and styles. I’m purposefully avoiding single-weight display faces as they have limited usefulness in real-world design projects.
Wondering how to combine these fonts? Check out The Definitive Guide to Free Fonts for some recommended pairings.
Click on the image or font name to see examples of websites using the fonts in the wild. Click on the “Google Fonts” link to use the fonts on your website. The provided ZIP file downloads contain the latest versions of the font files to install on your desktop. The files come from the Google Fonts repository on GitHub—I regularly check the commits on GitHub to make sure the files provided here contain the latest versions.
* Note: An asterisk indicates the family is body text friendly, meaning it contains normal, italic, bold and bold italic styles and has low to moderate stroke contrast, large counters, open apertures and a large x-height.
