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

Forums: 

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?

Multiweight script families - Help with PhD

Hello everyone,
I am currently writing a dissertation on type technology, focused on developing a workflow for creating multiweight script/cursive families utilizing Multiple Master technology and some Metafont/Metapost techniques. To be more precise my objective is help the designer in creating calligraphy and brush scripts – of the kind which weight cannot be just changed without complete redrawing (you can’t just move stems around).

Stile. True Cursive with Style.

Forums: 

Today italic fonts are assuming a marginal role in typography and are mainly used for emphasising purposes. Filippo Salmina from FSdesign believes they deserve more and pursuits a personal philosophy in the development of italic fonts.

“Stile”, the new font family, has been developed particularly for being used as copy font. While common italics with an angle of approximately 8 degrees while reading make your eyes quickly exhausted, “Stile” preserves them from fatigue. Due to its moderate inclination it is easily readable, really flexible and universally applicable. The cursive character of “Stile” has more to do with writing-speed than to its (moderate) inclination and is responsible also for its particularly homogenous text colour.

What are these cursive, handwritten script fonts?

Hi there! I would like to know what these fonts are. One of them is taken from the header image of http://www.laurenslatest.com/ and I can't remember the origin of the other one.

Thanks in advance! :)

p.s. i'm not too sure how to describe these fonts, hope the terms, cursive and handwritten script, fit the bill.

Please help identify cursive font

I would like to use this font for a project. I know I've seen it before, but I couldn't find anything other than this clip from Liberty Bottleworks. I think this font used to be used in railroad advertisements, and may even still be used today.

What do you think the name of this font is?
Thank you for helping!!!!!
