It appears that the design community is going through a little retro phase, especially for the 80s. I also stumbled upon an upcoming art show dubbed 'The Murray Affair', which features 80s super-star Bill Murray. This got me motivated to roundup retro typefaces that work great with most designs. Below you will find my compilation of free retro fonts that will hopefully assist designers in upcoming projects. But first, check out this rad sample of Bill Murray fan art that will be in the show. And here are more font categories.

Fusty, which means old fashioned in attitude or style, is a fun font where every character was first hand-drawn.
