Subject: Famous Fonts- LIMIT OFF and i'll give hints if you ask.

Written By: KKay on 05/30/07 at 9:35 am

here is some familiar stuff written in familiar fonts...

can you tell us what famous band or movie that font is from?  some fonts may be recognised from more than one source so this is a forum for discussing that as well.  I'll add the link so you can see them more closely if you need.

have fun, limit 2.

Just a complete guess here, but is #4 from the movie Back To The Future?

Also, #6 kinda looks like the font used for the TV series Bewitched... :)

You know, it looks really similar. I think i'll go back and give some goodhints..

You can try #5....It's from the album cover or a famous quartet of young men...with remarkably strong liverpudlian accents. :)
