I never knew about this typeface/font. I will have to pay more attention.
Do you think the IRS can send my tax bill in PAPYRUS font? Now, that would be pretty!

I just had to follow up on this. My husband and I watched this show last night and found it very interesting. Such passion for fonts!! My husband is a graphic editor (among other things) so he knows all about typeface and design on a level most never think about.

Thanks again Rosemary!! Never would have found it without you!!
