    Hello All,
    I have a customer looking for some lettering done in Italic Papyrus. I have a Mac and I can't seem to find this font anywhere. I have found regular Papyrus, but not the italic or oblique. I'm hoping someone has a suggestion or can offer some wisdom from their own experiences. Thanks a bunch,
    :Canada:

    right, no such thing. Some programs like MSWord allow for what is called Faux Bold or Faux italic. In other words the program bolds or italicizes fonts with one click even if they don't exist. In other programs you actually have to own a bold or italic version of the font in order to apply the effect

    Papyrus is bad enough without warping it this way and that. Actually it's not bad, it's incredibly passe. It used to be a nice face until every chowder society newsletter and grade school recital program began using it.

    The true test of a good font is that eventually all designers will despise it.

    Great comment Steve. I love the font and hate how many people use it and use it inappropriately.
