Hi,
This is a semi-Mac related question. I am running this comic strip http://www.frisbeefodder.com/category/mac-and-paperclip - a daily comic about the long-standing relationship between the (classic) Mac and Paperclip...

Mods, I'm not using this forum to promote this comic but if you notice the bitmap font I am using, it's only temporary - I am trying to emulate the Geneva Bold font (as you may see on the logo on the right http://www.frisbeefodder.com/wp-cont...-paperclip.gif). I literally copied and pasted the individual letters from various screen shots to create this! I have geneva regular which is fine for the other headings but it seems Geneva Bold has vanished off the face of the planet.

Does anyone know where I could get Geneva Bold from so I can emulate some OS 7.5 graphics?

Thanks!

There was never a font called genva bold

the text in the top menu bar looks to me like Chicago

no problem glad to be of help

PS I found out today that the paperclip was a Norwegian invention. During the war Norwegians would wear a paperclip as a secret sign of defiance to the German occupation

However, I can't find a Chicago bold now... I need no anti aliasing so it's not like I can emulate the appearance of a bold font.

There was no Chicago Bold either. It was just a standard font.
