Typography | Free serif font downloads

I have not been keeping up with posting all the great free fonts that have been coming out of late. There have particularly been plenty of serif fonts. Here is a collection that have come out in the past couple of months.

Gandhi serif is an excellent looking workhorse serif available in the four standard regular, italic, bold and bold italic weights. Gandhi serif also has a matching sans-serif in the same weights. The serif and sans-serif pairings are similar to Gill sans and Perpetua.
