Bommer Slab

Hello guys, I'm writing to present my new font family called Bommer Slab.

About the Project:
Bommer project started in January of 2014 and I am happy to announce the first family - Bommer Slab - is now ready for release. This family includes 14 weights - been seven uprights and seven italics.

This font has a strong personality, that makes it perfect for use in headline sizes but means it also works gracefully within text blocks.

Bommer Slab is just the beginning: a rounded version will be launched next month (May 2014) and condensed and sans versions are estimated for the second semester of 2014.

Thanks!

I'm looking for a slab serif with open shapes and contrasting italics. I really love Salvo Serif, with its round O and in general very open round counters: http://www.fontbureau.com/fonts/salvoserif/

However, its italics are really just oblique:

Does anyone know of a similar font with true italics?

I've just been handed an important piece of work generated elsewhere which extensively uses Bodoni throughout web and app implementation. Before I throw my toys out of the pram I'd like to go in with an alternative slab that reads well at all sizes in the digital sphere. Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thankin' you in advance
Marco

Book text

I am in the midst of choosing typefaces for a book, and I just need to get out of my own head for a bit! The book is a fairly large-format (9x12), with good production values. The subject matter is largely historical, with many vintage photographs along with a smaller number of new images. There are a few sections of text, along with extended captions for all the images. So I want highly legible, not too compressed, slight vintage feel, with lots of layout flexibility, and possibly/probably paired with Avenir Next (mainly in some maps or other graphics).

Hi everyone -- here's another one I can't figure out myself that I would love some help with -- thanks in advance --

Does anyone know what typeface was used for the Cartoon Network logo?

Hi, typophiles,

Can anyone identify something close to either of these two typefaces on this book cover? (Jan Huizinga, In the Shadow of Tomorrow, 1936)?

I realize it's hand-lettered, but anything close as a starting place would be a big help - with some attention to the detail/peculiarities, if possible.

Thanks!

Anyone out there with a clue as to what this Engravers Roman-ish slab serif face is?
Western Railway is close candidate, but no cigar: http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/jnlevine/western-railway/

Common slab serif

Hi -- trying to figure out the slab serif in this infographic -- I think this is a very common one, but for some reason I am having some trouble putting my finger on it -- I imagine you all can figure it out in 2 secs, so I thought I'd post -- thanks in advance.

I am looking for a thin slab serif that has a bit of a contemporary or "tech" like feel without being cheesy. I have looked at Apex Serif, Gingar, Soho, and Vitesse. These are all pretty close to what I want, but I am wondering what else is out there. Any ideas of other fonts in a similar vein?

Any idea what this font is?

Hi-

I'm designing a logo for a school project that is for a bird sanctuary. I am doing a watercolor wing,
and would like to figure out the proper type to go with it. I like the contrast between having
a watercolor with a slab serif, but want to see what others think.

The name is called:

Arbutus Migratory Bird Sanctuary.

Please help me identify this font. I've tried WHAT THE FONT and other sites, they don't give me the correct answer.

Thank you,
J.

Inspired by neutral slab serifs with an added twist, Slab Happy is a typographic system consisting of eight layerable fonts with infinite combinations. Slab Happy looks best when set in display sizes, but functions just as well at smaller point sizes.

The complete Slab Happy family consists of: Regular, Bold, Outline, 3D, Stitches, Fill, Shadow, and Crosshatch.

Hello again!

Would like to seek help in ID'ing font in the attached image. :) Thank you!

I realize that it might be custom (especially the added slab serifs and missing portions), but is there some font that comes close to this?

Thanks for your help :)

Hi Guys!

I've been really curious about the typeface in this Kate Spade email, particularly the Slab Serif - 25 % off. Does anyone know?

Thanks!

My new typeface, "Columbia Titling", is now on sale at MyFonts and for a limited time is just $8 for four weights!

Columbia Titling is an titling-caps display family based on wide Clarendon-style wood type and industrial signage design from the late-19th and early-20th Century. It includes a small set of OpenType features, including both tabular and proportional figures, special superscript ordinal suffixes, underlined superscript alternate letters, and OpenType fractions. The typeface takes its name from the historic S.S. Columbia, a steamboat launched in 1903. Though not a true reproduction, the wide, slab serif letterforms on the front of the Columbia's wheelhouse provided some inspiration for to develop this typeface. Enjoy!
