Adventures in Font Matching: part deux. Awesome! More info about the fonts used in Serenity including a look at "Fruity Oaty Bar".

Part one: if you missed it.

Neat! I missed this the first time around. I particularly like the Orchidee Medium used for Serenity's opening credits.
Rick is multi-talented. He is also the designer and webmaster for our BC Browncoats site. I do enjoy using different fonts.

And nifty! Many perplexing font questions resolved. Fontastic!

Thanks to Simon for finding this and Rick Yaeger for the P.I. work.
My own thought was that "NOT MANDATORY" would make a spiffing name for a band, but a T-shirt is good, too.
That kind of work is so exciting to me I don't even care that the medical form font I asked about couldn't be found. I appreciate the effort, and feel sure it will turn up sometime.
This guy so *rocks*! I thought the previous Adventures in Font Matching was great, and so is this one -- nice link, Simon! :-)
Update! Obscure font from Serenity identified!

I found it! I found the font on the header of River's "medical" charts, as discussed in Adventures in Font Matching! It is a font named "Induction" and it is available from
