Noted New Zealand architect Bruce Rotherham (1926–2004) was inspired by Herbert Bayer’s "universal alphabet" created at the Bauhaus in 1927. While he admired Bayer’s pure geometry, Rotherham felt it was "virtually unreadable." The Bauhaus-inspired inclination for architectural publications to use sans serif faces provoked Rotherham to consider how a readable Roman book face might be approached using some of Bayer’s same principles of simplification, but also retracing the evolution and use of the Roman form in an analytic manner.
hello everybody, i need help, what is the font of this image, please says me, thank you
I'm a newbie in a need of some typo advice from experts as I have become overwhelmed by browsing the web ...
I'm a student and currently redesigning a medical magazine run by a non-profit student organization.
I'm looking for a sans serif for headings (it will also appear on posters) and a serif for long texts (2 columns).
Keywords: economical, legible, modern
We are proud to announce our new release!
I've been working on my first typeface for the past 2 and a half weeks.
The idea was to create a type inspired by the Bauhaus letterforms but adapted to modern times.
With styles good for Display ("regular" and "bold") and others good for Text ("book" and "book bold").
I haven't set the kerning yet and there's still plenty of work to do, but I wanted your opinion about what I've got so far.
Can anyone tell me which monospaced fonts work best for printed body text?
After reading a few old posts about appropriate sans serifs to accompany classic serifs, I decided to make an attempt at designing a sans serif to accompany the Benedictine Pro face. Tentatively named Benedict Sans, here's what has been done so far for the regular weight (to be followed by book and bold):
Hello everyone. I am designing a high school newspaper for my campus, called "The Pioneer". What it pioneered, I do not know.
I've always enjoyed both Bodoni and Scotch style faces. I wanted to introduce some ‘fashion sense’ into the ‘work horse’, and get something unique. I think there's some potential to make it into a text face, eventually expand it, but I wanted to get some feedback here first. I honestly have no idea what I'm doing, folks. It just sounded like a worthwhile idea to entertain.
I've been looking at Monticello quite a bit, and referencing a generic Bodoni for logic and proportion. For what it's worth.
What do y'all think of that |Q|? and
I realize the teardrop is missing from the |g|. Bear with me.
Thanks to raph for the Monticello Specimens.
Hello! I know this an incredibly stupid font to ask you to name, but it would be nice to know. I've only seen it on Windows computers, and have seen it many times before. Does anyone know this font's name, if so... is it also downloadable?
In this specific case, this was just a screenshot I took from a youtube video. Do not mind what is says, it won't make any sense. Heh Heh.
For Immediate Release:

Doncaster is a bold display face which emphasises legibility and clarity, but which combines those qualities with a distinctive flair. The designs have a timeless quality, making them equally at home today or even in Victorian inspired design work. All of the faces are ideal for poster work, signage or for really eye-catching but not ostentatious headings and titles. Seven faces are offered combining upper and lower case forms with incised and embossed decoration as well as an italic form.
Here is a specimen sheet showing all seven faces:

Four faces are offered-regular bold and black weights as well as a condensed form. All faces include a range of Opentype features, including ligatures and old-style numerals. The Corsham faces merge 'olde-worlde' charm with fun character, yet remaining clear and legible for text use.
