Ahh! Thanks.

Looks like the same fonts though - 1001 fonts has them listed by rating, the oterh list alphabetically but I looked up three and found them in the list; if not the same, then likely a large overlap. But 1001 has previews... the "extra stout" is nice!

Just found Ritzy Remix - very nice. Maybe I'm just going to grab them all.

Now wasn't someone recently looking for an arabic-script looking font?

I just found the 1001 fonts site has a 'Foreign Imitation' category - and there's a pretty nice one on there called Catharsis Bedouin 1.0 - postcardware. Now I have seen better "arabic" fonts but this is (almost) free and quite usable.

The "Made in China" looks quite usable as well, and "Runes" is interesting because it consists of actual runes!

Now, this is most interesting...at least one of the retro 50s images available from Nick is also part of the collection from girlswhowearglasses/dinc. Hm...who does it really belong to, as in, which of the two really has the right to sell it?

See, I bought the dinctype collection before she moved overseas and one of the images that suited my project was the very one I now see Nick offers. Hm. I wonder if the collections have more images/characters in common...

I missed your message until just now.

I had suspected that some of the retro images would be found in more than one vendor's collections. I'm guessing that these images are not copyrighted and are probably some of the same ones I've got in old printed clip art collections (Dover and another publisher whose name I can't remember).

I also suspect there are variations in quality, depending on what the vendor scanned and whether the images were cleaned up and/or converted to vector format.

Being lazy, although I'm sure I have a lot of these in printed collections, I sure don't want to scan them! I'd rather buy 'em in digital format.

But yeah, it would be interesting to compare the collections and see where the images overlap.
