Any chance someone could identify this Circus-style font? - or one that is as similar as possible?
Hi there. I recently came across another term for the Tuscan/Western/Circus-style fonts and I cannot remember what it was. I recall it being a city or possibly a state and that it struck me as odd that it wasn't what I would generally think of as a western location. I'm hung up on Michigan, but I don't know if there is any reason for that. If anyone out there is more knowledgeable and can end my mental blockage, I sure would appreciate it.
Greater Albion Typefounders have just released tow new Typefaces on Fontspring and Myfonts:
Bertolessi, is a Roman face made fun, with a healthy dose of filigree curves thrown into the mix. It's an ideal compliment to our extensive Bertoni family, but can be used anywhere a bit of humour and flair is required.
Greater Albion's next two releases are now available on Myfonts.com and Fontspring.
Does anybody know where I can find these kind of fonts like used in the letters of the image I am attaching below?
They are mostly used in old circus brochures, theater, books & tales... If you know what I am talking about. Have a look :)
So I saw this Carnival/Western style display face two days ago, and have bene looking everywhere possible since. Some examples are listed below.
I have stumbled across only one in the past day that is very close, but some of the serif/ornaments are not the same. That can be seen here.
I have literally spent hours going through free and paid type sites and am just not having any luck. The above was actually suggested using What the Font on MyFonts.com.
Thanks in advance for any input!
does anyone know a digitalized font that resembles this one?
Once again I have fallen under the influence of my fashion conscious teenage daughter, who tells me that I absolutely must produce more "shabby chic" fonts like the trendy scrapbookers and hip fashion label designers use. On showing her examples this turns out to mean more circus style fonts with wide ascenders and decoration. We did this dance once before the the Cascade font and she wasn't entirely satisfied. It was too Art Deco and not crude enough looking.
