Where can I find computer fonts that look like wood or tree branches?
I'm working on a Mac.
I love antique (1880's) fonts and wood looking styles were common

Howdy, fontman.

Here's a site where you can download three rustic-looking wood-themed
Macintosh fonts (in SIT format), "Wood Badge Font," "Logger Font," and
"Wood Plank." (Scroll down the page to the section entitled "Fonts"
and the subsection "Mac Users:"

If these are the kinds of Mac fonts you're looking for, I'll be glad
to find some similar fonts for you. If these fonts are not what you're
looking for, more detail on your exact needs would be very helpful. It
would also help if we knew the names of the "wood" fonts that you
already have, in order to avoid duplication of effort.

Thank you for such a quick search and reply these are great. These are
the only ones I have. I do recall similar fonts made at the turn of
the century. If you have any ideas on Victorian fonts and clip art
that would be great. If not thanks for the help.

I will continue searching for you. Do you have any interest in antique
or Victorian-style fonts that do not have the "wood" effect?

Another cruise around the Web has failed to yield any more
wooden-textured Mac fonts, but I did find a site that has some lovely
Victorian clip art:

I found some good-looking wood plank fonts in PC Truetype format that
you might be able to convert for use on a Mac. "Burnstown Dam,"
"Planks," and "Wreckage" are freeware fonts with a wood motif (scroll
to the bottom of the page):

Although I have designed several bitmap fonts in the distant past (for
the Amiga platform,) I know next to nothing about the details of font
conversion from PC to Macintosh.

I hope a Researcher who is a Mac user will have better luck in finding
some nice Macintosh fonts for you.

Hello Fontman ~

I love fonts and typefaces myself - and here are some in the style I
think you are searching for:

For wood style fonts for the Mac, try Simply the Best Fonts - Wood

Or their Western Style fonts:

There is also Da Fonts, which has four pages of western-style fonts:

Font Magic also has some western-style fonts:

You'll notice that sometimes these sites have the same fonts, as often
happens with free font sites.

If you haven't found what you want, there are also several font styles
you might want to take a look at in The Font Archive

Some fonts are in Mac style, but if not, there is a True Type Font
Converter available on the Mouser Fonts site (which has another 1700
fonts if you want to take a look). The Converter can be downloaded

I bet with those choices you will find just what you're looking for,
and with the converter you can convert them for use on the Mac.

Search terms -

western-style fonts
western style Mac fonts
western style fonts +free
