New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Found these letters in "Philadelphia" on the title page of an old book. The page was printed in one color letterpress.
The letterforms reminded me of some that I saw in Hill's Manual of Business Forms. There are 2 versions of what Thos Hill called "Brush Letters". I've included them for reference in case it helps, but I'm really looking for the name of the typeface used to print this word "Philadelphia"
Any help or leads of any kind are welcome and appreciated.
All my best,
Looks to be like a run-of-the-mill brush type but need to have an exact identification for this particular one if possible. Thanks!
Sutturah – dangerous curves!
Designed by Octavio Pardo, Sutturah is a display font intended for poster and editorial design. It was born as an exploration of new text patterns. The font combines very detailed and constructed shapes with script flavour. The design has varied influences, from gothic fraktur to the display super black high contrasted wood types.
I have no idea why the photo is rotated when both Preview and PS show the image upright.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Caridade is a bold and powerful script face. It draws some inspiration from heavy brush drawn vintage hand lettering but its heavy weight is much thicker with plenty of impact and more contemporary letterforms. The face offers a wide array of weights, from the powerful Heavy weight to the graceful Thin.
Caridade can get the job done for many unique design tasks.
