Fonts.com is one of my favorite sites. Collecting fonts is one of my hobbies. (I do some stupid stuff with my disposable internet cash.)
And now...name that font!
I don't know fonts well enough to name it, but it has some really gorgeous serifs.
I doubt anyone could, though I was hoping someone with a keen eye could say what off the shelf font it looked most like.
It was a custom developed font for an old security company that I had worked for, originally intended as a data loss prevention encoding of documents.
Looks very Garamond to me... a little thicker and sloppier in spots.
Were there different versions used to prep documents for different people, so a leaked document could be traced to the leaker?
That might have been the original theory, but we just ended up using it on the Web page! :-)
