Embellished Engravers?

Doing a motion graphics piece using 18th & 19th century engravings of mythical animals, etc... Very fanciful and over the top. Need a font for some Initial caps that resembles an embellished engravers, similar to fonts used on currency, but more fanciful. Like this, only much nicer. This, I think, is rather blunt and vulgar.

I can only explain what I'm looking for as "Baroque Victorian" which I know is no help at all.

What are your favorite fonts (or EPS resources) for something like this?

The New Standard of Unicase Sans-Serif Fonts

Forums: 

I've been trying to create a website for my software design company and, at least for some of its functions, I think a unicase sans-serif font would look good. I used some font creation software to create a unicase version of Myriad Pro, but it's nothing polished—I'm only an amateur at typography. It represents the basic look of the unicase font I'd like to see, but do you know of any already-created fonts that might bear some resemblance to it? I included in the title of my post the phrase, "the new standard", because I feel as if some of the existing unicase fonts aren't quite up to par with the "classics" of Helvetica, Myriad, Frutiger, etc.

I'm Giuseppe Salerno, Art Director of Resistenza.es -Valencia Spain.

I'm developing some fonts, and i would like you to see my latest
creation called Vito Sans.

this typeface born during the summer of 2010, in a little town
called San Vito lo Capo in Sicily.
this uppercase font is perfect for when you want to use eye-catching
big texts for anything from posters and flyers for concerts, events,
parties, to cd covers, advertisements.

I hope you like like it!

thanks for your time.

"Press Your Luck" font design

Forums: 

Hello. I've been a long time lurker, so I've finally decided to join in and get advice. I've been into fonts ever since I was a kid, especially those from logos. I design my own by shaping them on PowerPoint and transferring the glyphs to High-Logic's Font Creator Program.

Thus far I've done some modernized fonts based on the classic "Press Your Luck" logo; one is regular and the other is extended, but I have some fine-tuning to do (the corners of the letters are rounded or beveled, which I don't want). Ray Larabie is known for recreating fonts from logos, and though this is a parody in the same vein, do I need to seek legal permission before publishing the font?

First real attempt at drawing letters - personal identity

Forums: 

Hi everyone.

In creating my first personal identity, I've also ventured into creating my first letters. I'm very new at this so once again I'm asking for advice. I've posted information on this project a while ago and have since been heading in a different direction. Here is the original post.

If there are any ways to improve the wordmark, please share your thoughts.

I also need to choose a primary font to go with this, and so far I've been looking at large x-heights like Axel, Info, Unit, Meta. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
