I'm looking for some oriental style fonts to dress up some of my manuals and such. Anyone have a good source? Anyone know what the font is on the IKKA patch?

Thanks in advance

Microsoft has fonts available for their office products if you're using word. A good many are free and what you're looking for may be on your ms office cd if you didn't load the entire thing. The default load does not. Other than that there are huge libraries online.I would type fonts into google to start with.

good luck!

but that's just my opinion I could be wrong.

I believe rickshaw.ttf can be had as free true type font. If not, it's on those inexpensive "1,000 fonts" CDs.

Thanks so much. Rickshaw is perfect.

Craig - the ttf file works in PowerPoint too, as well as in open office.

Chuck,

Looks like you found what you needed, but if you ever need free fonts, try abstractfonts . com

They have a bunch and they also have them grouped by category. I think they have an "asian" font or "oriental" font page with plenty of the popular ones.

It's a good resource. So is fontfreak . com

Let me know if you need any help with fonts, designs, etc. I still have the powerpoint presentation you emailed me a year or so back. Thanks again for that.

For all the help. Lots of good fonts to choose from and I donwloaded quite a few. What's interesting, is that the one font I've been looking for has eluded me. Rickshaw is good and very close but not quite 100%.

If you look at the cover of the original Kenpo manual (see it at the link to Rich Hale's site)

http://www.kenpojournal.com/Memorabilia ... a_Tour.htm

you'll notice the "kenpo" on the manual has a very unusual "o", almost like a "u". Haven't found that exact font anywhere. How did I get to be so picky over the little stuff? Hey, wait, everyone on this forum is picky - whew. Thought I was loosing it for a minute, there.

Chuck,

It's difficult for me to see exactly what that "O" looks like. If you can scan it in and email me, I can make custom text for you and send it back. No problem.

Hi Chuck

I don't know what fonts you got got but the one used by Mr Hale looks suspiciously like one I have called "Karate". I think it's TrueType.

Check out the following site, but I am pretty sure this is the font you seek.
