I was asked to remake a flyer but don't know which font it uses. Can you help?

What have you tried so far? – Farray Mar 12 '12 at 22:19
Check the wiki and FAQs for 'font-identification'. – e100 Mar 13 '12 at 13:40
@e100 There's nothing about it in the FAQ – kaiser Mar 13 '12 at 13:54
@kaiser It's not mentioned in the FAQ because these questions, while allowed, really aren't encouraged. There have been a few meta discussions about adding them to the do-not-ask list but they haven't been excluded yet. It is worth noting that the font-identification tag in use on this question mentions "for when automatic identification services...haven't provided the answer". If the asker had clicked "learn more", they would have been provided a full list of automatic identification options. – Farray Mar 14 '12 at 19:13
Understand. @DylanCole I tried it yesterday with the iOS App without a result. – kaiser Mar 14 '12 at 19:27

I had to do some digging as I remembered this in a game I played years ago when I had my first mac back in 1997 (Realmz). It's called Black Chancery and you can find the download here:

Here's the specimen: enter image description here

yeah I recognized this as Black Chancery, ah the memories! – ghoppe Mar 15 '12 at 21:57
Thank you, thank you! Oh, I didn't know about automatic font detection apps/sites, thanks for the info, will make sure to use them before ever asking similar questions here. – HoboPrimate Mar 18 '12 at 19:04

The closest I could find is here:

Lucida Calligraphy - but it's not your font. Maybe you can get away with it.

OK - this is driving me crazy! That "P"! Thought maybe DaFont might have something... a few are close, but nothing even approximates that uppercase "P"

Also: I have been unable to identify the font using any of the font-identification sites, so does that mean the original question was appropriate to ask, after all?
