mystery URW font "Flammanion"

Waasi's picture

I am looking for a font "Flammanion" which is a URW font included with the Gerber Omega CP software. I don't use Gerber software. I called Gerber, they were no help besides telling me that the font was not available for purchase as a TTF. They can not even send me a jpg/pdf to let me know what it looks like. Has anybody heard of this font? Is it similar to another font? I basically need the following letters in a vector format:

NAMASTE
Namaste

It would probably be enough if I can see the font / these letters in an image file so I can match or rebuild. Any ideas anybody?

It's not listed at the URW site which suggests it's probably one of their older clones. Unfortunately, I don't recognise the face, but here's what it looks like:

Isn't this just URW's Flamenco?

Yep, so it would appear. I know that some of their clones were distributed under a variety of names (presumably at some point they licensed the proper name from ITC and used 'Flammanion' prior to that).

agisaak, Bendy, you guys were tremendous help! I can't explain the amount of headaches you have just cured, but I can say it lasted for about 5 hours and it involved about 20 people at over 7 companies. Thank you so much!!!
