Google fonts
« on: 2013-Jun-05 »
Found this by accident  :D

You can select the fonts you like into collections & download them as a zip at
http://www.google.com/fonts/

Or you can download the entire collection (around 2.5GB & 651 fonts) using mercurial at
http://code.google.com/p/googlefontdirectory/
Instructions on how to download via mercurial is provided in the above link for Windows/Mac/Linux etc

Most have an open license but the download includes the relevant license in the zip file so you know where you stand with the font.

Your local Mercurial repository is about 1.3GB, and then your working copy is about another 1.2GB, which adds up to 2.5GB
