Retro Font

Can Someone name that font?

Comments

Could be [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/depressionpress/2080847355/|Othello]], an old ATF font, never digitized to my knowledge. The closest I know are [[http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/reserves/velvet/|Velvet]] and [[http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/linotype/macbeth/|MacBeth]].

Thanks Ryuk ;-))

Yes, Velvet looks quite accurate; MacBeth is more ornate.

An outline version of Othello was created by Dan Solo and included only in the Dover Book/CD "24 Outline Fonts". It doesn't seem to ever be sold separately.

A solid version, as well as a matching fill version, was recently (2009) produced by 'Character' and is available [[http://abfonts.freehostia.com/|here]]. They are probably back-creations from the Solo font.
