Google's 174 web fonts in one convenient downloadable tarball for your Photoshopping enjoyment

Google’s Font Directory and API for web fonts could have a transformative effect on how we read the web. The only problem is, Google has made it very difficult to download all of the actual font files.

Web designers must be free to experiment with these new fonts, to sketch, comp and get to know these typefaces in browser and non-browser applications. This is why I’m providing this archive.

You can use it in web pages, but until I found this, I couldn't design with it. Now I can. EPIC WIN.

I found the packaging still vaguely annoying since each ttf file was in a separate directory, so I ran this on the command line (cd to the untarballed directory first):

mkdir all; find . -iname '*.ttf' -exec cp \{\} ./all \;

Then I had all the ttf files in one directory at the root (./all) and I could drag and drop that into OS X fontbook.
