Alcalá is based on the document “Biblia poliglota complutense”, aka Bible polyglotte d'Alcalá.
It was the first edition of a complete polyglot Bible, as well as the first printed version of New Testament in Greek, the Seventy and Targoum Onkelos. Conceived between 1502 and 1517, it was thought, financed and largely by cardinal Francisco Gimenez de Cisneros.
The first drawings go back to 1995. A second version was started in 2011 in order to answer the ordering of a publisher to compose a Bible based on the translation revised of J. N. Darby in French and Madagascan. Drawings are optimized for uses in small sizes.
apologies for the small image. any help with this is appreciated. i should know this…
does anyone recognise the typeface below?
First spotted here in an article for Gemma O'Brien on LetterCult.
I don't know whether to describe this as a slab or transitional serif, either way I'd love to know what the name of the actual font is.
Are there anyone who can tell me what this font name is or one who look like?
This is my debut typeface (which is still untitled).
What initially meant to be modular serif inspired by arab calligraphy, turned out into somewhat modernist base with elements used by older serif typeface styles.
Doncaster is a bold display face which emphasises legibility and clarity, but which combines those qualities with a distinctive flair. The designs have a timeless quality, making them equally at home today or even in Victorian inspired design work. All of the faces are ideal for poster work, signage or for really eye-catching but not ostentatious headings and titles. Seven faces are offered combining upper and lower case forms with incised and embossed decoration as well as an italic form.
Here is a specimen sheet showing all seven faces:
Can anyone identify this font from a Brazilian sports mag? That X looks familiar.

Anyone know what typeface was used for Jozi Rising?
Would appreciate any help. Thanks :)
Does anyone know what the typeface is that Radiohead are using for their new album cover? It's a condensed gothic of some sort, but I can't pin it down.
Laffy Fatty is a super thick, unabashedly kitschy display face.
This is off one of a series of industrial information posters from the communist era in Hungary that I bought in Budapest a few years ago. (The other posters have different typefaces, ranging from Gill Sans to Helvetica and a few more more-or-less interesting ones I can't identify, might post them later if there's interest.) The text reads: "do not touch the oxygen flasks with oily greasy hands". Design in Hungary was good but tended to change less with the times, therefore the very wide time range.
I've photographed, cropped, cleaned up and tried to straighten this as best I could, though it's still a bit warped. Whatthefont turns up nothing. Any ideas? Some of the letterforms are slightly awkward (especially the g) but overall I like it a lot.
Could you identify the font used in this headline?
(I'm sorry but I don't have better quality image, in the original image the edges are straight)
Than you for all the hints.
This is a font ive been working, is inspired by the amazing "Mostra" from Mark Simonson. I wanted a font with a old feel to use on my vintage artworks and graphics, it started as a vector file that i use, but them i keep adding more characters and turned it into a real font. I would like to know the opinion of the people here about this font. Thanks.
I'm updating some fonts originally created in Fontographer 3.5. While creating the bold on some of the characters FontLab is misshaping them.
The first page of the attached PDF shows before, the second page after the bold effect.
Using the change weight in Fontographer also caused a problem unless I first used the "Correct path direction," which fixes the problem in Fontographer. However, after correcting the path and regenerating the Type1 font from Fontographer so it could be opened in FontLab did not help the problem in FontLab.
I've played with the various path tools in FontLab but have had no success. I'm guess there is something I'm missing that will fix this short of manually reshaping the character.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
We maintain a font for a client that we're moving to OpenType and they want to make the bold version a little heavier while we do this.
I can use the bold effect to get the glyphs to look the way I want them but is there a way to get Fontlab to expand the width of the character as well when changing the weight of the glyph? Seems like this would be a basic function but I've not yet found it.
I imagine with Python I might be able to script something to "record" the bearings, adjust the glyph weight and reset the bearings to what they were but I've NO idea how to even begin using Python.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there. Looking to ID the fonts used in both "CONQUER" and "CANVAS" in this pic.
Thanks in advance for any and all help!
Trying to identify the type used for "Book of Majors." Sure it's something simple, but I just can't place it.
