Re: What is the name of the B&N Nook Font?

Ok I googled away and I can't find it but I will say it looks like the math symbol of a "intersection" so I went looking and it looks the same here is what I found on that: CLICKY

∩
Intersection = cap U+2229 ISOtech

ook

I'm sure its in a font somewhere but I have no idea at this moment.

Not sure if you mean the font in the application or the font of the logo.
Most logo's aren't a font. This logo looks like Futura is used as a basis.

Re: What is the name of the B&N Nook Font?

I know this is really old, but if someone is looking for a font like this, then they KNOW that logo's aren't usually simply fonts. Thats not what the question was. Someone looking for the answer to this question is looking for a way to produce their own text in a similar style.

The proper answer to this question is a font that looks similar: Mink Regular
That font is the closest i could find. The only difference I can discern is the k, but it isn't too far off from the original logo.

Thanks Anonymous! It does look identical with the exception of the K, which I've seen in a few other fonts (that I can't remember offhand at the moment), so a combination of the Mink font + another font for the K should do it. Marking this thread as Solved. Smile

The Nook work was created using monotype gill. Eric Gill was a prolyphic book designer at the turn of the century, seemed only right to use his typeface. We hand created the n.
Hope this helps. Best Marc Shillum

Another typeface that is similar and has that unique N or U is a typeface called Evolution, it also has the same problem of the K not being correct. I found it by Google-ing “free rounded fonts”  and found this download at http://www.fontspace.com/category/rounded?p=2  it comes as a zipped file that you can download and then once unzipped it can be imported into Word. 
A standard type that has a similar k is Calibri and that is usually available in most word programs.
hope this helps, Linda

For the k in Nook I would also recommend the following typefaces:

Consolas, Corbel, Gill Sans MT, Quick Type II Mono, Segoe UI, and TW Cen MT.
Segoe UI appears to be the closest.
