Saying Goodbye and Happy New Year to Font Favorites

As we review 2014 and plan for the new year 2015 I'm having fun while saying goodbye to a long used print font. I have put off the parting of the ways for some time.

I so admire the art of typographers, especially their popular uses of print lettering today. Yes, I passed a course in calligraphy many years ago, but it definitely is not my art form. For me I think it is a question of patience rather than hand and finger coordination.

On a computer back a few systems ago I found a perfect font, Cezanne, which spared my making a gif file of my personal signature. I liked the font. It kind of went with my admiration of Cezanne, the painter. 

Here are a few samples of banners I used with my treasured font. I even loaded the font onto new computers as I acquired them. Some have called it a funky font. Ignore the intense yellow screaming at you, please.

This year I've transitioned to yet another new computer system. In creating new banners for my websites yesterday guess what I couldn't find? My Cezanne font! It is on the old computer! I don't really want to go through working on that system and transferring files.

So it's time to move on. It's a new year. Time to simplify, maybe even go back to tried and true arial. 

What do you think of the new banner for this blog?

Happy New Year, everyone!
