As Types Grow Older – Re-Release of Grimoire and Sadness


My very first typefaces Sadness and Grimoire have just been published in new and revised versions at Myfonts. After the tragic end of the established Fountain Type Foundry I had to ask myself the following question: Is there still any justification for the existence of my 20 year old fonts?

HELP With old/Curly/Ithinkit'sFamous/Fantasy Font

I've been looking for this font's name for months. Nobody seems to know, and the recognition pages didn't get it either.

The sample says "E l B a o". I've seen this fon in one or two places already so, I think it's a famous one.

It's a bold/curly/fantasy font. I suspect it's a free one.

Can anybody help?


Help identifying handwritten serif style font

Can someone help me identify this font. I've looked everywhere and so that I don't have this problem in the future, what type of font classification does this really fall under and what type of serifs are these called? To me the font seems reminiscent of an art deco look and school/marker style, but I'm not sure of that either at this point.

Thanks for any assistance you can give me. :)

Really don't want to recreate this typestyle if I don't have to. Can anyone ID this?

This is a hailing port of my dad's friend. He wants it burned into a cutting board. I, being the artist in the family, am the go to guy for doing this. Usually its easy stuff, Times Roman, Palatino, Trajan, but this...would have to be totally recreated. I am not getting paid for this. Any help figuring out what typestyle this is would be vastly appreciated! I'd rather not tweak 2 or 3 hours worth of bezier handles if I can avoid it.

Sans serif with curly R and W

Hello typophiles,

Can someone please identify this font with curly R's and W's (amongst other letters)? My first example is from a design agency's logo. I'm thinking it was customized...I'm pretty sure my second example is a real font out there. Either way, I'm looking for a font that would have a curly R. Thin and bolder options would be nice.

Thank you!

Bertolessi and Tulk's Victorian Banner


Greater Albion Typefounders have just released tow new Typefaces on Fontspring and Myfonts:

Bertolessi, is a Roman face made fun, with a healthy dose of filigree curves thrown into the mix. It's an ideal compliment to our extensive Bertoni family, but can be used anywhere a bit of humour and flair is required.

(x) Citizen K International cover font ID - History {Riccardo}

Hi all !

Can somebody tell me what font is used on the cover of this magazine (thin and curly font shown below in the image)?

Months ago, I discovered the font on internet… and now I can't find it anymore…

Tank you !

New from insigne: Caridade


Caridade is a bold and powerful script face. It draws some inspiration from heavy brush drawn vintage hand lettering but its heavy weight is much thicker with plenty of impact and more contemporary letterforms. The face offers a wide array of weights, from the powerful Heavy weight to the graceful Thin.

Caridade can get the job done for many unique design tasks.

(x) Jack and Jill Font / curly handwritten monolinear serif - probably custom, various alternatives {J Bradley J, Mike Y}

Hi there! I have been SEARCHING high and low for this font and can't find it anywhere! I have it as an embroidery design, but would like to match it in true type font so I can use it in my other embroidery program. If you search for Jack and Jill font you only come up with the embroidery font option-not what I need. I'm sure there has to be a match out there somewhere, but I haven't been able to find it. Any help or suggestions?
