Fontspotting: Liddie and Liddie Black

The two Liddies were among the first widely available fonts that shipped with Windows, and they are quite classy and funky at that. Unfortunately this means they are now widely overused. Proof: I was able to find three examples in our almost bare beach rental house at Rarotonga...

 "Frangipani Fragrance" is Liddie Black...
...And so is "Coconut Tours".

The information folder has just Liddie, not Black, but you can tell it's related.

Liddie can be recognised most easily by the diagonal lines having diagonal termini - look at the tips of  the R's and A's. Oh yes, and this one is only available in capital letters, so is commonly found mixed with other fonts in a design, as above.
