I went for the font as posted in the Frost*shop where they used my name to illustrate one of the possibles. I figured that if Vitamin P thought I ought to have that particular font, he was probably right.

Wise decision; that's surely what we call "fontinative determinism". As your font is, so you are; I'm very much a sans serif sort of guy ...  ;)
Is there a "Total utter bollox" font? :twisted:  :mrgreen:

Hey, I said there was a prize for guessing correctly the font at the gig, not in advance ...  :mrgreen:

Not quite sure what yours is (and am too busy, in principle, to play "Font Finder" this afternoon  ;) ), but that capital N has more than a touch of the Futura about it. Always thought those below-baseline pointy bits were a bit weird in the medium version, although strangely they become "normal" flat bottomed stanchions in the bold version.

Stanley Kubrick was famously a big fan of Futura Extra Bold, but appears to have gone off piste when he opted for that other very famous font, Gill Sans, for the intermission slide in the middle of 2001. It says something very profound (or trivial) about me that I was very taken with the latter when I saw 2001 in a cinema in Cambridge a number of years ago  :shock:

Have these been posted yet? I mystery package arrived at home yesterday, but the address label was damaged, so we couldn't tell if it was actually addressed to us. As such, the postie wouldn't hand it over. If you've not posted them, then I suspect it wasn't a package destined for me at all - I've only just ordered my first Xmas pressie!
