fonts repository?

Hello, im looking to install the artwiz fonts package, i could just download and install manually, but is there any repositories you guys would suggest that have a decent amount of fonts (hopefully including that one) that I can use to install it and maybe others with apt?

(If you aren't already familiar with the site) There are a lot of both regular and exceptional fonts. One just need to download the fonts and type in
install downloaddirectory/fontname /usr/share/fonts/truetype/myfonts
Before that you'll have to mkdir the myfonts directory at the shown path.
Obviously, I don't know if there's a way to apt-get fonts from this site.
