    Looking for some help to track down a similar, but better version of this font... The client likes this but after closer inspection, the serifs are quite wonky. Some sides are sharp points, while the other side of the same serif is blunt. I'm willing to purchase if need be because the price on the job will more than cover the cost of the new font. Keep in mind that the S's (esses?) in the attachment were made by myself to replace a dog of an origional.

    P.S. the font name on my computer is called ikarus.

    You could try a squeezed Serpentine with over sized caps. It has the same feel, and is much more attractive even though quite distorted.

    Squeezed Serpintine is way better than the original......but you didn't hear me say it. :)

    I thought I had better swallow a little pride. I can't deny the improvement.....but I still say.........oh, I better not open that can of worms up. We are all getting along.... :)

    I would modify the middle of the S's a little bit, they are chunky......sowwy :tongue:

    I DO agree! The original looks like a squeezed font anyway.
