comment What are good sources for Open-Source fonts?
To clarify (as one of the designers of the project): the part critical to copyright law are not the shapes of the letters, but the software representation of outlines, kerning, OT features etc. And that's all libre -- you can get the source files for all fonts on the GFD from their Google Code/Mercurial repository.

comment Building hand-written fonts for lettering
Quit flaming, Sir, this has nothing to do with open source. FontForge was written in and for Linux. If you want to use it in Windows, you'll have to fight your way through Cygwin-Howto's (or the equivalent in Mac). I've seen it done before, it's not rocket science. Curiously, Linux users never whine when Windows software doesn't work on their computers ...

comment What's the clean Blackletter font used in this jeans logo?
I'd give you a laundry-list of typography references I don't even own myself, but frankly ... I find the Wikipedia page on Blackletter script to be more than exhaustive :)

Then go for typophile for graphic design and typography issues, and check out this and this. I think you'll generally find more technical advice than individual critique, but if you ask specific questions (and not "how do you like this site?") you may actually get some good advice.

comment Building hand-written fonts for lettering
Unless you want to create manually hinted TrueType fonts (I can count them on the fingers of my hand), probably not. It's a process that can take months or years, very pain-staking pixel pushing, and doesn't have much to do with font design. FontForge has a decent OpenType autohinter though (you can edit them manually too). You can also use Adobe's autohinter available in their AFDKO, or Microsoft's VisualTrueType. There are also some websites that deal with hinting, for example this one. So unless you know you'll manually hint TrueType, you won't need it.
