This could be useful, especially if you only need as specific font for a short period of time.

A new application called Fontstand allows Mac OS X users to rent or try fonts for free. Once a font is previewed, it can be activated for one hour or rented at 10 percent of its retail price per month. Users can own the font after renting it for 12 months and a font can be shared with a team for a fraction of its rental price.

Fontstand’s pricing centers around European standards, a family of 10 styles of font generally retailing for around €67 (US$73.55) while a single font might retail for €15 (US$16.47).

It’s an interesting idea and might be worth checking out if you find yourself needing a single font for a short-term project.

Font stand requires OS X 10.9 or later to install and run.
