Hello everyone, I'm new here at Typophile.
Microsoft products (MS Windows & MS Office) come with a variety of serif fonts. If you were limited to use Microsoft serif fonts only (for printed text), which would be your favourites to use?
I like Century Schoolbook, Goudy Old Style and Book Antiqua (Palatino Linotype has a wider line spacing by default).
I have the following text layout problem in InDesign CS6 and CC for Mac. Text is typed with Times New Roman. Some vowels have stresses placed with the symbol Combining Acute Accent (Unicode 0301). This is the common character for the stress in Cyrillic texts. When I choose to automatically hyphenate text the hyphen shifts down if it appears after the stressed letter. This happens when you select the Hunspell hyphenation dictionary and text is marked as Russian. Everything works perfect with English text.
So the question is: What is the cause of the problem, is it in the Adobe software or in the font? What could be changed in TNR to make it work properly?
A tex input file to use with XeLaTeX and the corresponding pdf output in order to compare Brill with Times New Roman on a text of width 90mm. Files meant for the thread http://www.typophile.com/node/103271
The input text is utf8 encoded and should normally have extension .tex.
I am trying to find out what font this is! (obviously)
I've attached the full logo and a close up of "university" for extra reference. I know that some of the letters such as the 'R' in Washburn have been altered. I am wondering if this font was specially designed for the logo? I can't find it anywhere.
Thanks in advance!
Trying to identify this typeface. Originally considered it as a possibility for Times New Roman, but the "E" and "C" are distinctly different. The rest of the letters are so close to Times New Roman though, so I was wondering if it's possibly a variant of.
Sign is from some outlet store at a mall.
Thank you fo any help you can give!
Hello Typophiles !
Im currently studying graphic design in an art college, and part of my final submission task is to produce a little font booklet that would most accurately inform the reader/viewer about the font that you have been chosen to represent. I've been tasked with Times New Roman, be it luck or tragedy.
Personally i've found Times New Roman to be somewhat a difficult font to place/display in a booklet artistically & aesthetically pleasing ( although its known so ubiquitously as a book font ) .
I've decided to divide the book into a few sections, as follows : Introduction ( 2 pages ), About the font ( 4 pages ), Variations [ bold, italics, etc ] ( 4 pages), Typographic posters ( 4 pages ) and lastly credits.
I'm brand new to typography and just starting my first typography 1 course; one of our assignments is to find print examples of typefaces from a list composed by my instructor. I've found nearly all of them (14/18) but I'm having trouble finding these last 4. I just bought the latest editions of In Style, Details, Cosmopolitan, and Glamour to try and find adverts with these typefaces but I'm not really having any luck training my eye up. I've spent the last two days combing through newspaper adverts, yellow pages adverts, and these magazines and it hasn't jumped out at me. So here are the typefaces I'm looking for:
Times New Roman
and I could do with a better example of Eurostile but it isn't necessary... Thanks to anyone that could help me out.
I created several web-font stacks based on different styles: neo-grotesk (realist sans-serif); geometric; humanist body; humanist display; renaissance; neoclassic; baroque; romantic; and monospace. I am still puzzling with Georgia.
Georgia is a wonderful web-font for display and book, but I cannot classify it perfectly. Do you believe it is a realist serif, baroque typeface, or...?
Also, do you think Century Schoolbook is a good Georgia-alternative for web-body or/and display?
Is Century Schoolbook not somewhat different in style?
Thank you for you reactions.
Does anyone have any idea what this font is? I made the graphic right before my hard disk crashed, so I do know that it is a font, I just don't know which one. Any ideas?
Although I've embedded every version of TNR available on my machine in Acrobat-Pro9, it's clear that that PDF representation of TNR 10pt lacks the same solidity/density that it has in MSWord. Tildes, for instance, appear broken, losing the delicate curve. Suggestions?
