Zine Fonts

Psst.. did you know, I did a similar post recently about free handwriting fonts!

As part of my art journey I’ve begun to make zines. Zines are self published booklets, or magazines that focus on one small subject, often obscure. I’ve been obsessing over art zines because artists often publish their preliminary work and sketches within their zines or create zines with artwork all around one subject. I love to see peoples obsessions, how they work with them and around them and how they bring them to life. Whilst creating my first zine I spent a long time looking for particular fonts. I decided to write this blog post to help others in case they were also looking for free typewriter fonts.

Pin for later?

In my last post about free fonts for your zines, I split the fonts into groups because they had quite distinct styles. For this post though I’ve put them all into one image – you can compare and contrast them here (links below):
