This is killing me... this font is SO bloody familiar but I can't figure out what it is. I've done a shape-matching test at Fonts.com and plowed through my own suitcase, to no avail. Can anybody tell me what font this is??

I just doesn't pop to mind.. frustrating.
I've used it before, several years ago. It starts with "lu" (I know it's not lucida something). Not of much help, am I.

Why not just e-mail the site administrator? I bet they'd know. Sure, you might not get a reply, but it's worth a shot.

It looks like Lubalin Graph.

(Thanks to some careful editing in GraphicConverter and checking with What The Font?)

Strange that it looked SO familiar but that I'd never, ever heard of it before. Like a girl at a party, with big blocky square things at all her vertices... familiar, yet you don't know her name. And you don't want to pay for her, you just want to experience her for a few hours and.... well, that's enough of my letters to Penthouse entry.

For now.

Helps me a lot when I search a font. It's not 100% accurate but it the times I used it, I found what I was looking for.

There are two links in Brad's post, which naturally makes his better. Variety is the spice of life, you know.

Oh quit your pissing contest.
Neither one of you have linked to a place where I could have the words shown above delivered to me in stroked outlines, negating the need for me to buy the font, let alone consider pirating it (beyond the pale).

That's what would REALLY impress me.

OK I double checked and you posted 2 links (I didn't see the second one). If I could, I would hide my head in my ass. Sorry man. I prostrate.
