New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm looking for high-resolution scans from pages of Arrighi's La Operina, which is a classic manual for calligraphy and for the 'chancery italic' approach to pre-printing-press typography. I'm aware of an on line resource of "the" work, but the resolution is too low.
The work doesn't have to be authentic and I'll consider examples of modern interpretations. I have a copy of Three Classics of Italian Calligraphy but it doesn't show enough detail.
Any help appreciated.
any clues on this epic font? Something similar perhaps?
Hey all, any ideas what this is?
Hi everybody !
The first, I wish health to all members of forum.
I have a question about "Font Info" in Fontlab Studio 5.
Please tell me know function of "Font is Bold" and "Font is Italic"
I don't understand what to use ?
Thanks for all !

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.
Looking for the typeface used for 'union special' or something very very close to it. Thanks in advanced.
Can anyone help identify this font?
Anyone recognise this "Club Rotation" font?
I'm looking for a versatile and (dare I say it) modern condensed grotesque, mainly for headlines and shorter texts.
- upper and lowercase
- A few weights would be nice
- the ability to use as a webfont.
I've been using this as a "placeholder" for now:
Some of you could help me please with this font?
thx in advance
Currently finishing the layout of a work on architectural theory and aesthetics, originally published in English, though now it's the German edition I'm involved with. We've replicated the design in most aspects, however the Baskerville italic used extensively throughout for titles, references, introductory quotes... it just looks very tight and condensed by default (or perhaps even more so in the German, contrasting with lengthier words).
Is it a kind of type crime to stretch the font ? I recall hearing it's preferable to use another font altogether if the italics look wrong.
At my new job I've inherited a logo with a typeface I can't identify. Can anyone help? It has a really strange capital R and some of the caps hang below the baseline.
1. Do you know the origin and date of creation of the bold style?
I read it was dated XVIth century. I don't know the precise date and who used to initiate it?
2. Apart from the creation of italic as a specific typeface by Alde Manuce and Francesco Griffo in the very beginning of XVIth century, when was italic first used as a way of highlighting a reference or a single word inside a paragraph?
I met this beautiful, condensed italic font (serif, but not very much) in my (previous) paperback edition of [The Design of Everyday Things] (wonderful book, BTW); but I cannot exactly identify the font.
Thanks in advance
I am trying to recreate this logotype because the original files have been lost.
It may be two different typefaces -- it's hard to tell. What the Font couldn't help me...
I'm looking for the typeface on Pro Taper specifically the one used in the slideshow images on the home page. I've found similar but nothing that included any italics.

Hi, If anybody could help to identify this italic typeface it would be much appreciated.
It has a look of Eurostile and Conduit but please check out the attached file if you think you can help.
I would like to know where certain Roman and Cyrillic glyph variants come from.
In American cursive handwriting (Roman letters, naturally):
• the "f" looks more like a print "b" than a print "f";
• the "s" does not resemble any print letter at all;
• and the "r" looks like some kind of weird mutant print "n".
In Russian cursive (Cyrillic letters):
• the "г" looks like a backward print Roman "s";
• the "д" looks for all the world like a cursive Roman "g";
• and the "т" looks like nothing so much as a cursive roman "m"!
(The cursive forms for "г" and "т" are also used in italic.)
As for "r" and "г", I wonder if the same principle is at work for both.
I have seen some of the Russian "cursive" letterforms in print, in the credits for some episodes of "Nu, pogodi!"
I need some help to identify this font
I've tried with some pages but i can't find this font
Please help me!
Thank you! :)
This looks fairly close to Adobe Caslon…but not quite. Anyone know what this is?
Hello I need one last font identification,
Its very similar its a italic serif, very similar to something in the Bodoni family but with much thinner lines. Any guesses?
Thanks again for you assistance and consideration!
Does anyone know which serif this is?
