I just released my first font in MyFonts. It's a text sans. If it makes success, I'll make a Cyrilic. Hope you like it! Here is a description:
Inspired by Italian Renaissance fonts like Poliphilus, Blado, Centaur and Arrighi, Lucca presents a simple charm and a powerful classic feel. It is cute, friendly, clear and superbly readable.
Its low contrast provides Lucca a firm yet flexible substance, making it sensual and enticing. There’s a certain degree of abstraction in the precise endings, and the whole design was made to survive even in the harshest conditions, conserving its readability and beauty.
I've got an in-progress here that needs your eyes. It's based on a hastily designed logo for a paper sculpture artist that I thought had some potential as a full set of letters. It's a bit of a mash-up of different elements but here's the main points I want: display face, high contrast, flared serifs and abrupt wedge serifs, large x-height, and some other thin, swashy elements and unconventional forms are ok with me since I envision it being used at large sizes. I'd also like to make light and ultra weights too.
Sort of Albertus meets a Michael Harvey face (Ellington, Strayhorn). These letters are in bad repair. Is this a font or custom lettering? Smaller image below. See large image at http://loose-oddities.posterous.com/my-favorite-lettering-in-vancouver
Does anyone know what this typeface is from the Enshede Catalog?

Came across this interesting and well drawn flared / brush (?) serif used for a fashion label (Oi Polloi) promo... You can see it in use here:
Anyone have any clues? your time and assistance much appreciated!
Darjeeling combines British Elegance and Indian Flavor. It is flared like Optima, with a scent of Bodoni. By layering “Regular” and “Ornaments” over each other you will create astounding pieces of colorful typography. Additionally there is “Regnaments” which combines the two other styles.
Darjeeling is great as a display font, but also perfectly legible at text sizes. Use the ornaments only to add spice to Your design.
Make sure to use applications supporting all these lavish OpenType features like small caps, various sets of figures, fractals and the 102 discretionary ligatures.
Darjeeling has been recently released at myfonts:
Does anyone know which typeface is used for Neumarkter Lammsbräu ecological beer?
