Font for Poem

  tonyq 20:13 06 Jun 2010

My son as been given a hand written 3 page (A4)poem, which I have placed into Microsoft Word for him. I would like to place the poem into a photo frame to hang on the wall. I have had to make the words small font size so as to fit the poem onto one sheet of A4. With this in mind,could anyone suggest a nice font to use?

Try ... Black Chancery

What is the poem about or what era is it? I think I`d try to choose a font something close to that line of thought. It also has to be legible for the reader(s) or deliberately not so, to make them study it closer.

thank you for the replys.
The poem is about taking his Law exams,which he is doing at this very moment.

For things that need a bit of flair...

I like Monotype Corsiva... click here


Arnold Boecklin... click here (very art deco!)

There`s a couple of fonts in Windows, try French Script MT - almost joined up handwriting you need to read carefully.

Alternatively, Eras Demi ITC has a certain legal type flourish to it.

Thank you all for your help advice. I will print a few copy's with the above fonts.

I have been thinking of putting the poem on to a A3 document and getting it printed outside so I could use a larger size font,but seem unable to set up a A3 document in Word 2007. I think it as some thing to do with my printer being A4. Are there ways to get round this problem ? or would I be better starting a new thread in PCA help with regards to this problem?

What I used to do when I wanted an A4 enlarged to A3 was to take it to my local photocopy shop that had a copier that did this.

The cost was purely nominal.

I was hoping to have it printed on some kind of textured paper,(if that is the correct term).

Special paper: that`s different.

Have a word with your local print shop; they may be able to help.

Not sure where to go to have it printed, would Jessops be able to print it A3 ?
