I got a new computer and realized I needed to go download all my fonts again. So while I was doing that I put together a collection of steampunk fonts. These are all free fonts.
My criteria for choosing a font were: 1. I like it, 2. It feels steampunky to me, 3. It's not just a version of script (because there are a million of those), 4. It's not primarily goth instead of steampunk, 5. It's easy to read, 6. It's not a version of some well-known title text.
So this list is by no means complete, just some cool fonts that I've used in the past or that I found with some quick browsing.
Time to Get a Watch
This is the most obviously steampunk and the least practical font here. But I couldn't NOT include it.

A nice distressed typewriter font.

I'm not totally sure about this one, but wanted some variety
I know I have several Circus style fonts on here, but they were too cool to pass up.
This is my favorite out of all of these, and the font I used on my business cards.

Bees Antique Handwriting
Yes, it's a script, but I think it would be really great for signatures on documents and the like.
