    need help with a mac font

    Discussion started by seeking - Feb 22, 2003

    i need some kind of old english'y kind of font. either that, or something that looks like some old german third reich shit.
    ive looked all over the net, but since they're all named after some faggotry, i dont really have the time (or patience) to scroll through 7,000 pages of dumbness.

    anyone?

    Seeks, the return of sent.

    Tearz, I'm pretty sure I got something for you, but it'll take me a good while to find it... I have an insane amount of fonts. Beer,

    And now I have to ask for a favor... I need to find a font that approximates the letters in these pictures:

    A thin, wispy but elegant serif with nice and pointy ends... all my serifs are chunky when made large, and I want something that looks fragile like this. Any help would be muchly appreciated. Beer,

    mams, not getting any mail.
    if its a big file, it might be cause my hotmail is a bit crowded.

    maybe try again to this address:

    My mailserver was being an ass... I restarted and it should've gone through to the PFA mail.

    Tearz, Perpetua is a great suggestion, thanks a lot... turns out I have that font already, just didn't have it activated in ATM. I don't have Xerox though, and I can't find a preview of it anywhere. But I think Perpetua will do the job, I'll have to mess a bit with the outlines in Illustrator, but it's definitely the best so far. Beer,
