Need some help on this one. I am not up on my scripts/serif styles. This one has me completely baffled. Anyone know this?
Wow! Are we playing 'Stump the Moderator'? Judging by the sub copy I would think it was an actual font. "Lodge" seems to be on an arc and extended a bit. At the risk of sounding like a 'newbie', where would I find Mike Yanega's Script ID Page?
Here's the link: http://www.bowfinprintworks.com/ScriptIDGuide.html Page 2: Esperanza or Hispania Script Good grief, the post, edit, repost tactics need some work! Doen't help when your router forgets it's name in the middle. Randy
Mike should get proxy credits for all ID's completed using his guide. Bravo Mike. He he. Yves, looks like the message got out just before the router crash and burn.
We need a 2 sec auto refresh on this forum! Nah, it's better to get these double Id's
Hit the wrong button I guess. Edited: Hispania, which appears in the Solotype Catalog by that name, has been digitized by others. At least two more versions exist, both of which predate Scriptorium's Esperanza. There was David Rakowski's Dobkin Script. Found here for Mac (the original) and here for PC (an old conversion by someone other than Mr. Rakowski). Ted Keener also digitized the typeface as Hispania KGD back in 1995. Unfortunately, Mr. Keener's website disappeared a couple of years ago, along with any online references that aren't ancient. Here's a screenshot:
Here, rather, is the screenshot:
I'm equally baffled. Didya check Mike Yanega's Script ID Page?
Hold it, I just found it: it's Scriptorium's Esperanza.
No $h!t: first I want to apologize for not making myself useful: post doesn't come through. Then I want to link to Mike's pages: doesn't come through neither. Finally I find the friggin' font: post doesn't come through neither! What's happening?! Why am I being sabotaged?! Am I just rancorous for not being able to add a credit to my name?! Am I making an even bigger fool of myself?! Is that even possible?! Does anyone even care?! (sob...)
P.S. Are there interrobangs in the OpenType character set?!
