A FONT OF UNUSUAL FONTS

There are several Web sites that have type fonts you can download. A couple 

of them areFonts.com , which we’ve written about before, and TypeNow.net, which we went to just recently.

TypeNow has lots of fonts specially created for movies and TV shows, like the slashed font used for “Blade Runner” and the cheerfully scary one used for “The Addams Family.” Others include the special fonts used for “Jurassic Park,” “The Godfather”, “Looney Tunes” cartoons, “Finding Nemo” and “The Matrix.”

Downloading a font, however, is only the first step in being able to use it. If you’re using Windows XP, save the font to the “My Documents” folder and unzip it. Then go to the “Control Panel” and open the “Fonts Folder.” Select “Install” and “Browse” to where you’ve put the font. If you have a different operating system, you can find instructions for Windows and Mac at Fonts.com.
