Typography | Floodfonts free fonts including Polaris

Floofonts have some interesting free fonts to download. I particularly like Polaris, which can best be described as a chamfered slab serif with the large blocky serifs you tend to get with slab serifs but with the angled serif you tend to get on an oldstyle serif. The other fonts are various display faces which can come in handy.
