Without the need of installation of an external program, you can use the setfont command and select one of the available fonts. All available font are included under the /usr/lib/kbd/consolefonts/ directory. You can switch to a TTY , say.. CTRL+ALT+F2 (TTY2) and check some of these fonts to see if they fit your needs.

You can use tab completion in order to list them all and select some of them. As an example, I've found the biggest font in the directory, try

setfont /usr/lib/kbd/consolefonts/latarcyrheb-sun32.psfu.gz

For further info and how you can set it permanently for the specific console (TTY) read man setfont
