Alternatives to Trajan

thedash's picture

Looking for an alternative.

Trajan has the right "feeling" but would be lovely to find something with a bit more "ink" and less air around it, just a bit more compact. And perhaps an alternative with a broader uppercase S.

Also, the bold isn't very bold.


EDIT: A family with small letters and not just uppercase letters would be fantastic.

Try Penumbra Serif which has heavier weights …

Do you know our new font "LeBeaune" just published today?

If you tell us the title of the movie we may be able to suggest a good fit.

Maybe the best choice is Mantinia by matthew Carter (available from Font Bureau)

Wow, Damien Gautier, I never met you before, it's weird how much we look like each other.

Also look at this list by FontShop (former?) staff.

FontShop staff is more than only one person. FontLists are compiled by a number of people on the FontShop team (including me).

Yeah, you tell 'em Yves!

.Garda, which has three styles of terminals is an elegant alternative.

Oops. Sorry, Yves. Didn't mean the comment to be snarky.

@thedash: If you can briefly describe…

1. What is the context? (audience, medium &c)
2. What are the goals?

…it will greatly improve people's ability to make informed recommendations.
