One of the things I like about Palatino is that it's one of the few fonts on my computer that can handle weird diacritical marks, like Czech letters and such.

But right now my current faves are Georgia and Bell MT, though I don't like the way the latter looks in boldface italics. (I'm pretty anal about my fonts.)

I once had a great font which was an authentic-looking gothic script and was entitled "Germany", as I remember.

I lost it when my old computer blew up.

Does anyone know how I could get it again?

Starting to lean towards Didot for large fashion headlines. Very Harper's Bazaar.

Don't everyone rush at once.

Hey, McT. I looked all over back when you first posted, then again last night.

Is this it?

No, neither of these, although the second one is closer.

Thank you. I must do more research, but my computer skills are more noticeable by their absence.

Your diligence does you credit, Tico, and I thank you for it, but no.

It's amazing how many variants of the gothic script there are.

Mine was simply called Germany, a convenient label only no doubt, and it didn't have so many twiddly bits.
It's nice to ba able to occasionally turn out an ancient-looking document. I used to be able to send tt e-mails direct from my computer which looked great (imho), in German to my teacher.

And I still like the Font thread.

Hmm, can't remember and don't want to read back, even though I started this, but did anyone add some of the newly invented fonts? (no, I'm not sure what I'm talking about, except that it's not about nothing.)

Ack, maybe I did, maybe I'd better look.

And I like all the twirly german type fonts, from my one semester of German 1A. I regret the classes were too distant from the science quad at the time, where I had troubles enough.

I know a smidge of italian, a midge of spanish, a pigeon of english, a basis of latin forgotten, a mere dot of german. But I also love art, and love fonts.

OK, I reread the thread and see neither I nor anyone else posted some new artist derived fonts, whatever I mean by that. I must have read some article. Let me guess, the NYT. Will see if I can find it.

To answer Craven from however long ago - that was the board before last. I did try to clean it. Perhaps with practice.

Now I try to eat and drink x number of inches away.







On newly designed fonts, no such luck.

Yo, Dag, these two links you gave didn't work.
