As it that wasn't bad enough, I see through the windshield (or windscreen to other parts of the English-speaking world), that the truck letterer committed the cardinal sin of setting Brush Script in ALL CAPS...


I noticed that, too. It's one fucking ugly piece of work.

Speaking of Papyrus...

Since there's been a condensed version of Papyrus on the Mac OS for some time now, I can't help wondering why somebody (like the original designer or one of the present licensees) doesn't just create a genuine bold version of Papyrus?

If nothing else, it would spare people like us the pain of experiencing Papyrus with either a "faux bold" effect applied to it (like in Word or Quark Xpress), or a stroke applied to it (like in InDesign or Illustrator)...   :lipsrsealed:

Is Paper Plus still around? We used to call it Papyrus Minus. :laugh:
