circus

Hi,

we would like to introduce you Show, a multi-layered chromatic font family based on an old Victorian style wood type. http://show.juanjez.com/

Show designers Inés Atienza and Juanjo López are members of the Familia Plómez association, a small printshop based in Madrid that devote their efforts to promote everything about letterpress printing, calligraphy, and lettering. One of our favorite typefaces from our collection of wood types has been the basis for creating a new digital typeface.

Circus Font?

Any chance someone could identify this Circus-style font? - or one that is as similar as possible?

Cheers,
Lúkas

Terminology

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.

Thanks.


P22 Ruffcut is the newest addition to the Sherwood Collection of historical and period-based fonts by Ted Staunton. It is an antique wood type style that evokes the look and feel of type used in the design of poster-sized advertisements for circus, fairground and like events in the late 19th century. It is inspired by the memories of printing letterpress posters on an old cast-iron flatbed press where the oversized posters were usually composed directly on the bed of the press using mostly wood type as large as two feet high. The Ruffcut Set contains 2 styles, Plain and Woody for that more authentic look, in basic OpenType format. Ruffcut is optimal for a wide array of decorative uses including signage and posters.

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.

Hello there,

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 :)

Thank you!

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!

Dear Typesetters,

does anyone know a digitalized font that resembles this one?

Cheers,
Joe

New Font: Andrano

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.
