Actually, don't need to be fonts anymore optimized for eink with the PW. Even fancy fonts with small serifs and non-uniform thickness look great. Other thal finding any otf or ttf fonts online (there is tons of free ones) you can simply copy fonts from your computer. In Win7 for example, simply type fonts into the search in start - goes to fonts folder. Then open a font and pick regular, italic, bold, and bold-italic. Sometimes it will work for fonts that miss italic. Comic Sans for example works with only bold and regular - the italic shows up on kindle as well - think just slanted over.

One font I also like straight out of Windows is Tektron Pro - that is a font that has non-uniform thickness and non-straight lines. Looks great on PW.
