Introduced by Chen et al. in Large-Scale Visual Font Recognition

325 word images intended for font recognition, whose fonts are included in VFR-447 (and VFR-2420).

(...) 325 real world test images for the font classes we have in the training set. These images were collected from typography forums, such as myfonts.com, where people post these images seeking help from experts to identify the fonts. Compared with the synthetic data, these images typically have much larger appearance variations caused by scale, background, lighting, noise, perspective distortions, and compression artifacts. We manually cropped the texts from these images with a bounding box to normalize the text size approximately to the same scale as the synthetic data.
