    this font is called Harrington... a customer found it in Word and faxed it over. i don't have it in my system and am wondering if there's another name or if there's something similar that i might have. (it's obviously not kerned, etc) it's for a boat transom, one shot deal so i kinda don't want to buy it if i have something close already.

    thanks a bunch,
    cory

    The font is definitely not Parisian. The font definitely is Harrington.

    Harrington was originally released by the Font Bureau but is not among their current offerings. The copy I have came with something or other from Microsoft and shows both The Font Bureau and Microsoft claiming copyrights as of 1992.

    Harrington is available on several free download sites such as THIS ONE.

    Actually it was simply the first one that came up on Google. But looking at the content, more than 18,000 fonts, and the names including foundry initials, I would suspect that they won't be up for very long. There is little doubt in my mind that what they're doing is violating a lot of copyrights.

    Site has been around for a long time - but recently (in the last month) they removed the "download" button on a whole lot of the fonts they have listed so I would say their time probably is limited!
