Fancy Fonts

Since I got my new computer, one of the things I need to do is move over all the fonts I use for design work. However, I am trying to keep the number of fonts on my new computer to a minimum. After all, there is no sense in having so many fonts that you can’t find what you are looking for.


I’m pretty sure I’ve got my basic fonts set up, but I’m still trying to decide what display fonts I really need. Do you have any fancy display or script fonts that you just can’t live without?

Exciting things are happening this week. You may remember that I shared some photos from my sister’s pregnancy photo shoot a couple weeks ago.  Induction was scheduled for this morning, so there will be a baby before the weekend is over. How exciting is that?

We won’t know if it’s a boy or a girl until he or she arrives.  I’m not sure if I’m for team boy, or team girl.  I already have several nephews, from other parts of the family, so a niece might be nice. But either way, I’m sure that kid will be loved.

    One of my students is a teacher, and he told me about a new font that copies the penmanship lessons kids get here. In Spain children are not taught to print before cursive, but are taught a simple, round cursive from day 1. Their schoolbooks are printed in it until about 5th grade. I remember when I first started teaching English in a Spanish language school, I had some kids about 7-8 yrs old so I printed on the blackboard and was told, “O.o Miss, we can’t read that!” I was amazed. Apparently it’s easier to learn the standard European cursive and then make the transition to print–?? Anyway, my student told me where to find a font called Escolar, which is in this type of cursive. I really like it!

      I’ll certainly look for that font! Thanks for the tip.

    I see online there’s a website called Dafont in English, the best match is called Gaston.
