That doesn’t make you a Yahoo. Or, if so, I’m one too — Lithos is lovely.

The reasons I suggested she go for something else in this case was that it suggests Greek something, which didn't go with the idea; and it doesn’t exactly “go with” the type in the arc (but I’m not sure what would go of the faces anyone would like). But nothing against Lithos, which is a pretty face.

O, c’mon, tell. Although, maybe you need to tell us (or show us) what Lionel is!

The only reference I could find is on Stuart Sandler’s Font Diner web site (7th down in the specimens on that page). Is that the face you mean? If so, it looks like a Futura knockoff with a weird E.

Or are you thinking of some other face? Names can be tricky.

You're going to kill me. I meant Lionel trains vs. slot cars.

Oh, ho!

On style points, Lionel wins. But on flexibility, it may have to go to slot cars. (It’s been years since I’ve seen any, though, so don’t know how far they’ve taken them.)

I'm glad you asked. Now I don't feel so bad that I had no idea what it was!

LOL! You got me, too. Trains was the first thing I thought of when you mentioned Lionel, but - like Kathleen - I was sure you were talking about a font.
