    What fonts are times New Roman look alikes or extremely similar? This font I need has flat sarifs on the m,n,r,i and diagonal cut to the top end of the f, and r. I'm not the font guru but hoping someone has a suggestion.

    Thanks in advance!

    California is very close but the F has a round tail on the top stroke when my pic shows a diagonal cut end to it. Still searching...

    Wow.....to me MAB....It looks a lot like one of my many different Garamonds as well. Sorry dude. Close as I could get.

    Thanks Geary, scrolling through my fonts it was very close to Garamond and Californian FB was oh so close. Appreciate the effort.


    Eric, Thank you so much for the ID on this font. Greatly appreciated.

    Once again.....Eric IS the MAMMAL!!! :thumb:

    And man alive, I love that font dude. "Village" is on my shopping list now. It's gorgeous! It's has a very refined classical appearance but with the hint of calligraphic undertone. Nice.

    (did I just sound like a wine taster right now.....sheesh!?) :tongue:

    Font Bureau has many nice fonts. I see their fonts used on many brochures, annual reports, logos, signage, etc.
