This is a tube with tomato puree. Anyone know about which font is used for the PAV logo? thanks. /ths
Is a license required to use type like that??? Seriously, check out those type books by Dan X. Solo. They're in most any Borders or Barnes and Noble book stores (if you're in the US) in the art/design section.His books are cheap--5 to 10 dollars per--and may have exactly what you need.
By some strange coincidence I was watching some of my old Monty Python tapes last night, and I noticed that that's the font they use for setting the main title! hhp
These are never coincidences, Hrant. I used to be surprised by similar eerie circumstances, but now I've come to realize we are all connected kindred spirits in the realm of type addiction. Or something.
Stephen, you are right. And the funny thing is, that the connection between type addiction and spirit lies in a small tube of tomato puree. damn, this IS Monty Python! ;) well, thank you all for the tips, i will have a look at the books Joe and Stephen recommended. thanks. /thomas
Thomas, I doubt there is a font to match this hand drawn lettering, but these kinds of initials are often offered as clipart. The Dover books are a good source. Search for "dover initials" at amazon.com, or abebooks.com. Also, Linotype's Madame isn't so far off. Interestingly, the forms are so complex, it requires several keystrokes to create each letter.

Got my solotype book right here... It's listed as "Bracelet" (pg 26) -jb
Hmmm. I think we should rename it "Monty Python's Coincidental Tomato Puree Roman Display." >;) David Thometz (of Ulm)
