I may be late in the game, but I just discovered Fontshop’s Type Navigator tool. I’m not sure how long it’s been around, but I wish I had discovered it sooner. Rather than choosing by category — Serif, Sans Serif, etc. — as most font sites do, this tool allows you to search by visual form. Once you pick a form, the search bar expands to include other attributes, such as angle, weight, contour etc.; and you can refine your results even farther. From there you get a list of typefaces that fit your search (as you can see below). And you’re all set to purchase, download and start designing. This will definitely come in handy.
