License/ownership of Fujiyama2 font?

May 11, 2013 at 19:23

Hi. For two of my website projects, I am very interested in the Futura/Futura ND font. However I've found the font "Fujiyama2" to be extremely similar, and so I'd like to use it.

Futura is available, officially, only from paid sites who expect large royalties. Fujiyama2, on the other hand, seems to be only available from free sites who have no information on its licensing or copyright. Some claim that it is owned by Corel- I doubt this, it seems to be a mistake because Futura is a Corel font. Wikipedia claims "Fujiyama is a clone of Futura."

Can anybody help me find the origin of this font?

How would I go about using this font in my project, then?

Fujiyama2.ttf is a illegal font.

Use Florence Sans or...

Thanks so much for your advice. I don't know that your suggested font is working so well for me though. I didn't ask for font recommendations because I thought Fujiyama would work. Clearly it won't, though.

That's the image that I'm trying to model. That all-caps "THE NEW ORDER" near the bottom is the font that I'm trying to emulate. It'll be allcaps when I use it on my wiki.

I could suggest my "Geddes" font, which has a similar style (particularly in the capital letters). http://www.dafont.com/search.php?q=geddes . It won't be an exact match, but will be close enough for government work.
