I used to have a font called Martian, but it seems to have been lost after several machine changes. I can no longer remember if it was Postscript or truetype, but I doubt it was from Adobe. Anyone know of this font and how I could get hold of it again?

Nope, not it.

Obviously Google was of course the first place to try, but although there's a few "Martian xxxxx" named fonts, there's nothing like the one I know. I'm quite surprised it has proved so elusive.

I think you may mean this one from 1997. It was originally distributed free with the long-defunct e-magazine, Bright Ideas. Most of their fonts  included  ©Bright Ideas in the copyright section but some, like this one, merely had the Fontographer-generated default.

I've attached the font here.

Ramón asked "Where?"

Who knows.

When I try, I get a couple of red-tagged messages saying that I'm not allowed to VIEW(!) the requested content.  Now, after having received messages saying that all my posts in this thread were rejected, I see that they're all there anyway.

If the OP comes back and asks, I'll post it to yousendit or rapidshare and just include a link in my msg.

My problem is now solved as a friend still had it and sent it to me so I now have it again.

Thanks anyway.

I think you're talking about a font originally distributed (free) with the now defunct Bright Ideas magazine. II was unable to locate a copy online, and tried to attach it here but was unable to post the message at all. I'll try to figure out what the problem is and attempt again later.

OK, now that I got my plain message through, I'll try it again with the font attached.

NOTE: Most fonts from Bright Ideas included a copyright notice "©Bright Ideas". A good number only contained Fontographer's default version and copyright info. In any event, there are no known legal inheritors of the Bright Ideas' materials.
