Google web fonts is a great initiative providing a simple and free way of adding real fonts to your web design projects. I have been using their service for a while and the only complaint I have is that finding the right font among the 400+ typefaces can be challenging. Apparently Chad Mazzola of Cambridge, Massachusetts (not England) has encountered the same problem, so he has kindly taken it upon himself to help us out.
There are currently over 400 typefaces in the Google web fonts directory. Many of them are awful. But there are also high-quality typefaces that deserve a closer look.
Beautiful web type is a growing showcase of the Google web fonts Chad finds most deserving. You can click each specimen to find the font in Google’s directory.
