I searched for this font in whatfontis.com. I found it (a free font) and the name is [ank]*. I went through the process of downloading, which included a toolbar and other software that I didn't want. I proceeded with the installation... got all the software but no font has been installed.
Then I tried to find the font on myfonts.com, but not there. I searched google and was led to this article in www.squidoo.com/font-identifier - which gave the link to this Flickr group.
