Two suggestions: the 7-block digital logo you can take from the PostScript file, that would be the authority for this. I expect you’ll need splines for that, arcs aren’t good enough. And for the other text, the “Handbook” font I posted should be correct. (In fact, if any part of it is off, I’d like to know so I can fix it.) It has both variants of the “t” in it (and for the “f” as well). Yes, for that one, arcs will suffice.
