swashes

Hi there,

I've created a font that has 3 character variations using calt (which works fine) and includes a set of 3 swash variations per character as well. The issue I'm having is I also want to include start and end swashes for select letters (a, e, i, o, r). I set up my code as such and it works perfectly fine in FontLab when I test it but when I try in Illustrator, only the start_swsh works. The end of the word remains normal.

feature swsh {
ignore sub @ALL @letter1' @ALL;
ignore sub @ALL @letter2' @ALL;
ignore sub @ALL @letter3' @ALL;
sub @letter1' @ALL by @start_swsh;
sub @letter2' @ALL by @start_swsh;
sub @letter3' @ALL by @start_swsh;
sub @ALL @letter1' by @end_swsh1;
sub @ALL @letter2' by @end_swsh1;
sub @ALL @letter3' by @end_swsh1;
sub @swsh1' by @swsh2;

Bengala is a trendy new type system. The family is made up of a script style, an extended all-caps style, and an ornament set that includes the animal illustrations shown here.






darling is a display font, with medium contrast, designed to be used in the composition of titles, letterings, visual id’s and short texts such as illustrated books or magazines for children.
it has 738 characters and a lot of opentype features that allows the composition of titles and/or words in a very different ways. otherwise, when applied with no features, it produces a homogeneous amount of text.

Anyone know this one? It's so close to Salamander it's not funny but it's not exactly it.

I'm trying to figure out if this is a typeface, or hand-lettered, or modified from a typeface. It's a book cover issued in 1990.

It looks a fair bit like ITC Usherwood Bold to me.http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/itc/usherwood/std-bold/ but of course it has ligatures and alternates not available in the current digital version of that typeface. Did Usherwood ever have swash alternates? Is this a hand-lettered derivative, inspired by ITC Usherwood? Some other font with fancy swash alternates?

Cheers,

Swashes

Hi
what font it is ? look like Caslon...
thank UUUU

We are proud to announce the release of Storefront.

Storefront is what the prolific and talented American sign painters of the 1920s and 1930s would have created if they had access to the advanced lettering and type technologies we have today. Rooted in an incomplete Alf Becker alphabet sample, Storefront is my usual overdose on alternates and swashes, my eternal attempt at giving typesetting that ever-elusive handmade impression.

Does anyone know which typeface is this on the cover of this magazine? (where it reads "Choice") And also the others? Glosa, Acta?

Thank you!

Hello all; this is my first time posting, though I've come here reading off and on. I have been learning all I can so I can speak intelligently about this topic, but please forgive me (and correct me) if I use some of the technical terms incorrectly or too broadly.

The attached logo was found on some rolls of metallic stickers that our insurance agency has been using for various purposes for at least twenty years, if not longer. We are currently looking into branching out with our marketing methods, which has of course left us in need of a distinctive "look" -- and we would like to use this logo, as it is (in our opinion) rather handsomely suited to the "tone" of the business we are pursuing, as well as able to give us some brand continuity. Unfortunately, the gentleman who designed the logo for us is long deceased, and we have no original files anywhere either.

Now, even after hours of searching and browsing through font identification tools, none of us have been able to determine which typeface is used here. The interesting flourishes don't help, I'm sure...

Does anyone know what is the typeface with script swashes on this book cover? (low x-height, high ascenders) I thought it was Mrs.Eaves Sans, but this one has high ascenders!

We are proud to announce the release of our new typeface Fan Script


.

A typeface basically focus in sports but with a strong contemporary attitute
and ready to be used in any kind of projects.

We have designed a PDF specimen to show some of the possibilities of the font.

Can anyone help me identify this awesome typeface used in the recent issue of Print magazine.

It looks a lot like Didot bold italic, but is heavier weight and has these amazing swashes.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Mike.
