I was reading the post Choice of Cartographic Font and the answer is suggesting the Typebrewer website. This website is also mentioned in the 26 point (i.e., Carefully Select Typeface) mentioned in 33 Map Elements to Include in Cartographic Design: A ‘How to’ Guide to Map Making .

But, now the Typebrewer website is having down time due to their conversion from Flash to HTML5.

Does anyone know about any other alternative websites for Typebrewer?

You can access old versions of TypeBrewer (or most other web sites for that matter) via archive.org:


That works for me in Chrome (but not Firefox, which on my system has an older Flash version).
