English

Hi everyone,

I'm currently trying to talk somebody (trying to reproduce late 1700s style in an English text) out of using the OpenType ›Contextuals‹ feature as a tool to substitute every (!) non-final s by an ſ -- as ſ usage is a lot more complex than that.

Now what this issue reminded me of was having seen a longs_s ligature in an English text once -- an ß, effectively. 17th or 18th century, I guess. I just can't find it. Un-ligated longs_s + s are everywhere, but that's not what I'm looking for.

Looking for a recent british typeface, preferably sans serif. Don't want to use something like Gill Sans which has been used to death, so looking for something a little different.

Any help much appreciated

Greetings typophiles!

Does anyone know of any sans-serif typefaces of the 19th century from England? It's rather specific, but hope many typographically-knowledged folk here would know of some.

Cheers all!

Dear Typophilists,

I'm looking for a font that I used for a book title long time ago. Can you help me to find it?

Hi does anyone know any modern English typefaces.I know of Baskerville and Calson but need something more modern for a project.

Thanks!

Hi everyone

I am typesetting my first book and wanted to get some feedback on it. You can be totally brutal, I don't mind.

Please check it out here: Draft

Thanks in advance.

I'm currently working on a project at university, trying to create a typeface in both English and Japanese that work with each other seamlessly. What Im curious to find out is;

- Your thoughts on the idea
- Any suggestions or recomendations
- Any really good or even really bad examples of these two languages at play.

Thanks for your help.

Hi all,

Just signed up to ask if anyone knows of a font that resembles the one used for the words "original oxford marmalade" in the pic. I assume the lettering is a unique design for the brand, but it's a pretty common style (or at least was back in the day!) so there must be something similar out there. Doesn't necessarily need the shadowing, more interested in the letter shape etc.

Thanks!

hello,
i would be very glad if you have a recomendation for an arabic font that will suite to the other hebrew (progtextGOLD by Fontype) and english font (ST. Ryde by Sascha Timplan).
(macintosh offcourse).

Is anyone able to ID the English font used in this poster?

Thanks!

Greater Albion has just released three new families on Myfonts.com.

Jonquin was inspired by some hand lettering seen on a World -War One recruiting poster. It’s a family of three faces for display work and headings designed to be used readily as an 'All-Capitals' face as well as in upper and lower case format. Regular and bold weights are offered, as well as an even more decorative incised form. The whole family is ideally suited for poster and advertising work, as well as book and record covers and period themed signage.

Howlett, which is now released on Myfonts.com, combines great character with extreme legibility.

It’s a simple display face that offers a sense of coziness and order, that speaks of all being well with the world. It is a modern design which pays due Acknowledgment to the past.

An extensive range of Opentype features, including old-style numerals, terminal forms, ligatures and stylistic alternatives are included.

Use it for headings and titles as well as eye catching poster work.

You can try out Howlett on Myfonts.com or see some examples of it in action in our blog.
