Garance Dore Font?

Hey there Typophiles,

I'm having trouble ID this type of font. I'm looking for something similar or even perhaps the idential font. It derived from the website www.garancedore.fr . I believed it might be a handwritten font but if anyone knows if this is an actual font or have any suggestions on anything similar, that would be great!

Thanks for the help in advance!

Minimalist Star Wars Poster Typeface

Hey, working on some infographics/graphic design projects, and came across this (in the attachments) while doing some creative research.

I was just wondering if anyone could name the font used for both the main titles, and the "Cloud City" part in the "Bespin" poster. Thanks!

(x) TYPEFACE HELP!!! - Handel Gothic {Nick Curtis}

So, I'm remaking this logo but need to know the name of the font used to create the original logo. I've included a snapshot of the typeface in the word "GRIP" to possibly help identify it. But I've also included the actual logo in how it was used. Any help would be greatly appreciated.!!!

Font similar to Trajan but with lowercase - similar to LHF Classic Roman, TF Arrow {Mike Y, Nick Cooke}

Hi all. I am trying to identify this font which shares traits with Trajan. Uppercase letters such as the /N/ are obviously very similar, but this is a bit sharper. Lowercase letters have some distinct differences from other fonts typically paired with Trajan. Most notably the /a/ and /f/.

Any ideas here? All help is greatly appreciated.

Cheers.

HQ scans of magazine spreads on the net

Forums: 

Hello all,
I am writing a small research for my Typography course in college, on the subject of "Font Pairing", and I am looking for some website where I could find some HQ scans of magazine spreads or other editorial work I could use as examples.
I got a few nice scans from magazines and books, but right now I am thinking about using the net to broaden my field of research (and to save some money for printing the thesis :)

Can anyone suggest any flickr group / blog / archive where I could find some interesting pictures?
This is what I found so far - in case someone else might find them useful.

Not Quite Futura Display. Any Ideas?

The closest font I can find is Futura Display, however it's not quite right. Look at the lower case t and uppercase P...it's not a match. Anyone have any ideas? Any variants of Futura Display or fonts derived from it?

Also, this logo dates back to the 90s. So it couldn't be anything designed within the last 15-20 years.

Sinder Font

Forums: 

From the designer:
Sinder began life as a custom block font that was begging to be distressed. Of course it was only an experiment, not to be taken seriously, until a customer needed a face of just about these proportions to give his "paranormal investigation" hobby an appropriately scary image. It was out of necessity, then, that I finished the entire font. It never pays to be caught off-guard at a critical point in a layout.

(x) What is this font called? - Thor {Alexandru C}

Hello. I've been searching through countless font websites,trying to find these two particular fonts,and I've finally come here. In the first picture,I'd like to know what the font is called that says 'Skatey',and in the second one the one that says 'Celebrate with us!' and is flashing. It'd be greatly appreciated if you found them for me!

-Thanks in advance,

Dead Designers, Typographers & Foundry's

When can I copy and sell an expired Typographer's or a current Foundry's type collection if it goes out of business? I am actually being serious when I ask this with sarcasm infused.

I have noticed that roughly in the last 10 years that with the evolution of the internet and software programs, that so many past font specimens have been converted into "updated" versions of typefaces. I realize from previous threads and the comments provided that this takes skill and is really some sort of talent to pull off effectively. That is nice.
