Google Web fonts - Complete download link
1

I saw this thread a while back about the awesome set of free fonts

The google page is optimized for those doing web development work - you can quickly include fonts in your webpage. However for those wanting to locally install these fonts and use it in apps like photoshop etc. there is no simple way (install it one by one - for 500+ fonts!) to get all the fonts.

So I pulled the entire code base and ran a quick script to create a custom zip file with just the fonts (and their licenses of course) - I've made it available here (its about 65MB) download. The original source download is close to 2 GB - so yeah its quite the size savings The zip has all the required TTF files (which you can install in any OS - tested and works ok in Windows/Mac and Linux)

Here is the link to the download:

I hope someone finds this useful and feels like it saves time. If you are using this let me know (either reply or bookmark) so I can update the zip file with the latest changes once a week or so.

All the credit goes to the folks who created these fonts - I just did some simple work on top of that to make it more easily available to the average user. Since this is all open source, redistribution is legal since I've included the original license terms.

Enjoy!
