Wood-type Glyphs
0

I am looking for a font that has the word "at" as a glyph. "Adobe Woodtype Ornaments" has the words "and" and "of" and "the", but I need the word "at." Think old playbills and news papers. Anyone have an idea where I can find such a glyph?

Thanks!
Kat

They may not all have "at", but his listing is a good place to start:

All those fonts have those kind of "catchword" glyphs, many of them with the one you're looking for.

Finally, you might want to build one yourself. Even Illustrator will let you modify letterforms for something this simple.
