fonts: oldies but goodies

i finally got an intel mac, and i’ve been spending part of the last few days reinstalling files that didn’t get transferred automatically. Imagine my horror when i opened my web page and discovered that the font had suddenly turned ugly! what had happened to my beloved charcoal font?

as it turns out, charcoal is a classic-only font. i ended up retrieving it from my old OS9 System Folder, along with such oldies-but-goodies as Gadget and SteveHand. I also downloaded a San Francisco-inspired TrueType ransom note font called St. Francis:

St. Francis font

ah, the memories!


Oh wow, St. Francis! That takes me way back to middle school when we would physically print, cut, and paste together the school newspaper using a Mac. Back when it seemed like the only other fonts we had were Chicago, New York, Geneva, etc. ;-)
