Two free fonts

A couple of interesting examples from DaFont.

DeutscheZierschrift is a Germanic Fraktur with some nuanced inline and shading work. Best used big, and where individual letter legibility is not at a premium (check out the captital 'A', the lower-case 'c' and 'r', and both 'x' characters).

Virus 43 is a subtly distressed take on a bitmap design. Useful if you don't have time to do the 'ageing' in Photoshop, and need something that is easy to read even in small sizes.

Oh, the ampersand is one of my favourites, Adobe Caslon Pro Italic.
