New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
There are, here on the Type ID Board, some recurring requests, which often haven’t a definitive answer or, being custom work, are followed by questions about available alternatives.
After the n-nth request, someone (usually Florian ;-) compiles a list of fonts in that particular style.
But these useful lists get buried under the subsequent hundreds of similarly “Please ID this font”-titled threads, making it difficult to find and refer to them.
So, here I would like to compile a list of such lists, with proper descriptions, for easier access and discoverability.
Please add any comprehensive list you’re aware of, or create a new one ;-)
Also, feel free to suggest appropriate keywords.
So, in no particular order, some lists:
The Fat Font Fad list, by Stephen Coles
Keywords: ultra bold, extra black, filled counters

The Fashion Thin and its Ilk list, by Florian Hardwig
Keywords: thin stressed sans, Noir
The Unsteady Pen list, by Riccardo Sartori
Keywords: handwritten, Strangelove, Where the wild things are, unconnected, casual printed, sketched
The Oh, Shiny! list, by Florian Hardwig
Keywords: beveled, 3D, dimensional, prismatic
