    i have request to make. Please, if the font is available from AF please point the links to AF. If the font is not available from here it is fair game.

    Seeking understanding,

    Hi, just got back from prague. All the street signs out there look really 'communist' need to find a similar font.

    please help.

    Buckle-up hungrydave!!
    I have been staring at this post for quite a while now and must admit I am flabbergasted.

    On this forum and others I have seen many posts phrased as 'new york yankees font', 'harley davidson font' and so on. Everyone with more than 0.2% of the average gray matter knows that there are no such fonts but just fonts used to cerate a new york yankees /harley davidson logo/website/... As there is no 'dumbo font' to describe the corporate housestyle typeface of the White House - or Tony Blair for that matter.

    So we decrypt and respond.

    But this time it goes beyond ignorance or lack of historical understanding or education. This one is plain stupid. Suddenly, apparently there are 'bhudist', 'catholic', liberal, 'conservative' and 'communist' fonts. Fonts, rather typefaces, stupid, are a reflection of time. Not of an ideology. In the part of the world where latin script - which includes cyrilic (not relevant in this case) - is used fashion and the style of a specific period it time determines the type being used. So the Prague street signs, as well as the Paris and Amsterdam, are reflections of the time that they were designed, The 1920's.

    Any idea, historical wonder, when communism came to Check?

    Satisfied? OK.
