- In the e-book cover chapter I will show you where to find professional and free fonts (fonts that for example Canva uses). NOTE: it is not possible to offer Fonts Bundles that are worth money. Only font vendors like Adobe and Monotype can do this, because fonts are strictly copyrighted So an offered 'Fonts Bundle' will be just free fonts.

So thanks to the Google Nik Collection you get access to this unique single click selection method
