    i agree with larry, this is a nice collection.

    i would have to add however that an even better collection of fonts than what larry recommends are those you can fine at http://www.pilo.me

    it is a private and exclusive community for typographers and designers who have an abundant amount of premium/exclusive fonts in addition to retro fonts. basically, you can find or request any font you’d ever want or need there. check it out if you can get it. i know it is pretty hard to gain access.
