Yes Rose, Glenn has a remarkable list and it is where I have gotten many of
my fonts.

Another note about The Font Thing: if you are viewing a font in it, with PSP
open, you will find that font in the drop down menu just as if you had
opened and minimized it! As you can tell, I am a fan of TFT. It's free, too!

I would suggest you join the list that sends fonts just about every week.
It is Glenn's List.

Here is the address:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/fontpacks/

It is a great list.... you get tons of fonts........ and they are all great!

Glenn will send an email once a week to give you a link to download the
fonts.  So it is not a very high volume list at all.  I think there have
been 35 or so emails sent this YEAR!

He does a great job finding fonts for us.  Tell him I sent you... :)

One can never have too many fonts...haha!

Hugs,
Rose
