A collection of unusual and incomplete ttf typefaces for use as display fonts. And not for copy text. However, you may use them as you wish.
Several of the fonts have been used by professional web designers in imaginative and creative ways. How do I know? I ask people intending to use a font professionally to kindly ask permission beforehand.
