My (current) 24 favourite fonts - part 1

A font should transport information in a beautiful way that is easy on the human eye. I have picked my (current) 24 favourite fonts out of my font "stock", which is comprised of about 1300 fonts. Today you see part one, next week you’ll see part two. I have ordered the fonts alphabetically, not by my personal taste.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN (Elegant, reminds of the good old days.):

Example: Abraham Lincoln served as a basis font for the logo of a fictive luxury food brand named Little Luxury. (Distinctive characters have been made even stronger.)

AFTA SERIF (Good readability, slightly playful, the serifs are a matter of taste though. The k-minuscule is an eye-catcher, the double O-minuscule however looks a bit strange. The kerning could be better.):

AGRAFA (Timeless, elegant, technical, transmits precision, only suitable as a dark font on a light background.):

ALEGREYA AND ALEGREYA SC (Elegant, reminds of handmade things, i.e. in the food industry.):
