If something's missing from your text or layout, Janda Fabulous could be just what you're looking for. Carefully yet exuberantly detailed, this TrueType font (with OpenType layout) is just, well, fabulous.

TrueType font Janda Fabulous bursts with detail.
Designer Kimberly Geswein has designed every glyph meticulously and with intricate detail: there are flowers, butterflies, and a cute-as-pie ladybug hidden within this typeface, which comprises hand-drawn dots, swirls, and confidently shaded lines. Janda Fabulous includes both lower and uppercase (and every one is unique), plus numbers and all the keyboard punctuation marks. The only glyph that's altered from its keyboard mark is the broken bar (above the Enter key) which Geswein has transformed into a waterlily-like dingbat. A display font that's easily legible at 24 points, you don't get the full effect of all the glorious detail until Janda Fabulous is larger than 60 points. Free for personal use, $5 fee for commercial.

Note: To use this font, unzip the folder and install the .ttf file in the folder C:\Windows\Fonts. Note that the font won't appear in your applications until you close and re-open it. For more guidance see How to Install and Uninstall Fonts in Windows.
