New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm a young teacher who is interested in framing a print of William Ernest Henley's poem Invictus in the complicated typeface Zapfino. I am experienced with computers, but not at all with digital typography. Zapfino Extra has many guidelines for usage, and this is probably not a job I can handle myself. Not to mention, I don't own the font family and it's very expensive.
Do you have any suggestions about how I might be able to have this done? A copy of the poem and a couple links of interest are provided. Thank you!
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
