    Default Font help?

    Hi guys. I'm working up a cover for a product line and I can't remember the font. It's really distinctive, and it's a free font but I can't track it down for the life of me. Unfortunately the old photoshop file for this cover disappeared when my old laptop was stolen, so I'm stuck trawling font libraries. Does anyone recognise this?

    Ugh, the jpgs very lossy, but the font is a kind of hard pencil outline with a rough horizontal pencil fill.

    I don't personally recognize it, but try these sites. I've found them to be pretty accurate when this same problem comes my way.

    When I posted here, someone else had also found the font but appears to have deleted their post. They deserve equal credit!

    It was Lyandra, and you're dead right - they were also spot on.

    Bummer, that's one I had but I didn't see the post until now. And to think....I could have been a hero. LOL

    I believe Diamond used that font quite a bit for a few maps he did too.
