Art Deco

Apollo from Fonderie Typographique Française

I stumbled over a http://link to some specimens of this typeface called Apollo. I like the quirks that sets it apart from similar faces, the C in particular, with the top terminal cut horizontally and the bottom terminal cut at an angle. Has this typeface ever been digitized or revived under another name? I hadn’t heard of it before.

Closest match to this book cover c. 1936 - script and slab

Hi, typophiles,

Can anyone identify something close to either of these two typefaces on this book cover? (Jan Huizinga, In the Shadow of Tomorrow, 1936)?

I realize it's hand-lettered, but anything close as a starting place would be a big help - with some attention to the detail/peculiarities, if possible.

Thanks!

Art deco building signage from 1920s-30s Philippines

Hi guys, this has gotten me stumped and I thought I'd turn to the experts for some help. I would be happy with something that's just close and isn't exact, but that triangular capital A is something I've never seen before in a typeface like this.

The subject says it all: this is from a photo presumably taken in Manila some time before the building got damaged in a fire in 1931.

I'm hoping you could help me out! Thanks.

Calling all Typophiles! Help is urgently and politely requested!

Hello one and all.

I am here today to seek your expert knowledge in identifying the font in the image I have uploaded in this post. I would greatly appreciate any help you can give and any suggestions of similar fonts would also be of assistance.

What typeface would represent the GG Bridge?

Forums: 

The Golden Gate Bridge just celebrated its 75th anniversary. I was wondering what typeface would best represent it.
Some attributes to think about…
-Built in 1937
-American Design
-Bridge Style: Art Deco / Modern

I am leaning towards:
-Broadway
-Gill Sans
-Franklin Gothic
-Din
-Bank Gothic

I would appreciate any thoughts.

art nouveau font in a youtube video. please help!

dear community,

i am looking for the name of an art nouveau(?) font which i have seen at the beginning of a youtube video. I have attached a screenshot, the video itself is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kDWPfEpMyU
The font whereof i'd like very much to know its name is seen from 00:02 until 00.05.

Thank you very much in advance for your help. I have looked through a lot of font catalogues in the last few days but couldn't find it.
Jakob
PS: i have already written to the user who created the video but didn't get a response.

Two New Releases

Forums: 

Greater Albion Typefounders have just released two new typefaces on Myfonts.

Eccles is another of our 'Early Victorian' typefaces, a series we started with the Wolverhampton family a little while ago. It might be described as 'extreme-Tuscan' in style but has a delicacy that many other Tuscan faces seem to lack. It's ideal for giving design projects a clear period feel, particularly in design and advertising work. We also see it haveing considerable application in preparing invitations to a certain type of happy event. At the other extreme, some of our younger associates have described it as 'your latest Steampunk font'. So perhaps we'll just have to settle on it having a split personality...

Two New Families Released

Forums: 

Greater Albion have jusst released two new families through Fontspring and Myfonts:

Corsham:
Corsham was inspired by traditional stonemason's engraved lettering designs. Designed to be used alone, or in combination with our Corton family, ithas wonderfully lively air, with distinctive lively serifs and beautifully swashed downstrokes. Four faces are offered-regular bold and black weights as well as a condensed form. All faces include a range of Opentype features, including ligatures and old-style numerals. The Corsham faces merge 'olde-worlde' charm with fun character, yet remaining clear and legible for text use.

Metropole:
