No need: it's a mix of Caslon 540 Swash and Swash Alternate italics.
But Guys! :^) From the heading "Polo Fields" I thought he wanted that one, which is unreadable. anyone could have speced the caslon! ;^)
I noticed that, too, but given how undistinctive it looks, even tiny, I figured the poster simply misnamed his request, which wouldn't have surprised me. The Caslon is way more interesting and, thus, more worthy of being id'd, even if it wasn't the poster's request. It's his own fault, methinks. Plus, in my meager defense, that particular Caslon wasn't exactly a breeze to id, at least for me. There are at least three different digital swash cuts out there.
Oi! Right back atcha Troubleman! =D
Hey-----IT WAS A JOKE--i didnt expect you to get the polo fields font--thx anyways =)
I was already headed this direction, but it is now confirmed: I hereby boycott all future Tom Cannon font-id requests. Don't come crying to me when the font you want is some crappy free font that only I know the identity of. (Lordy, what does that say about me?)
lol----you cant help but id my crappy fonts dont make me beg!!!!!
Mark my words, Yves: I'm no cannon fodder.
Hey Boys! Betcha can't ID just one! =D
Cheshire. You are probably right about the title and you are right about The id. I was just teasing the both of you. And maybe Trouble is right, It could be that I'm just jealous. ;^)
Tiffany, I'm not upset at you in the least. I was responding mostly to the recent comment from the original poster that the id request was a joke, that he really did mean the "Polo Fields" part and that he didn't expect anyone to actually guess it. So there are two possibilities, as I see it: 1. It really was a joke. If so, I don't need to be sent on a wild goose chase. 2. It wasn't really a joke; he actually wanted the Caslon, and he was making light of the subsequent responses. If so, I'm just tired of him. "No asky, no gety" is my motto, but he takes it a little far. I'm now developing a corollary: "Too much asky, no gety." The killer was that he thought I was joking when I said I was boycotting any further requests of his. Maybe that's his problem -- he can't tell what a joke actually is. I was trying to be gentle and harsh at the same time, and it didn't take.
Trouble. You are overreacting. No guilt necessary. -- I am feeling the love today!
Could you scan this any larger?
My thought exactly, Chesh, but I was too plain lazy to go double-check and confirm it this afternoon. You snooze, you loose. ;) Thank god you're more reliable than I am today.
Hey Tiff, don't you go belittling our ID prowess, you jealous nincompoop! =D
It's amazing what silly swear words one gets to know when reading Calvin & Hobbes. ;)
"Oi"? My kind o' woman. I think I like you, Tiff. ;)
I think he's onto us, Chesh! =D
Tiffany Wardle, you are too grand to be jealous of anyone!
Tiff, NO, please! My "jealous" remark was just a silly attempt to be funny. I'm probably overreacting, but now I feel all guilty.
Yeah I know: spring is in the air. ;) Like I said before: My kind o' woman. I think I like you, Tiff. Now don't get any funny ideas though, I am so NOT trying to chat you up (at least I wouldn't do that in a public place like this...) =D Happily married with two kiddies and all that kind'a stuff. ;)
