There have been many images going around the Internet explaining the basic elements of typography but most of these sources are incredibly basic and incomplete. That's why I decided to come up with my own version and be as complete as possible.
I excluded several things like diacritics, the different ligature types, numeral sets etc. to avoid making it look too chaotic but most of the basic elements seem to be there. I will focus on diacritics, ligatures and numeral sets later in this ongoing typography series.

So all in all I doubt that you are right here.
Nevertheless I won't share the file.
By the way, a font is primarily so expensive because it's such an awful lot of work to create a font in the first place. The default price for a single font is around $25, but if you consider the sheer amount of work it's not a lot.
And I clearly understand the legal issue.
