nj liquor store

We were in a New Jersey liquor store when Nicola says "look up". I felt like a Canadian in an American liquor store full of Papyrus.

And Cleopatra's Secret is...Papyrus!

cleopatra secrets

I guess Cleopatra was probably around for the age of papyrus as a writing surface...but judging form the store and the rest of the sign looks like a bit of a miss.

First Ottawa Sighting!

arts and letters

Ah, letters in Papyrus, what an art form! This sign looked pricey too, complete with the chipped away notched letters that are Papyrus.

World of Beer

beers of the world

Old-world to the max. Let's mod these E's R and L for the bottom here...yeah classy.

The bottom section, though, i've seen before, with the scripty lettering. Is it some modified Papyrus, or a lookalike font? How come it's only on one of the E's? What's going on here...

I have a message for you...this's perfect...we will stand out.



Who's lips would not desire to grace a goblet as fine as such? A brushed metal martini glass with Bostini 07 printed on it in Papyrus at Value Village.

Seriously though...a Google search turns up Bostini Cream Pie...anyone?

I guess papyrus is from Egypt and Egypt is in Africa. Feel the Papy...rythm!

Joseph Howe Grave Site

"Is that Papyrus?"
"The font underneath..."

"Haha, that's Papyrus, I used it on a grade school project about Egypt once", i said to Nick. "Sit down...let me tell you a story" I said, and it all started there...Sure enough, a Papyrus lookalike for a title with Papyrus underneath.

Joseph Howe was a famous Nova Scotian journalist and politician in the 1800's. He is honored with this grave stone and Papyrus sign.
