New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Just released a nice set of numbers, rescued from a 1838 Type Specimen Book issued by the Fonderie Clement, Bruxelles.
The 5 is my favorite, the upper part is unique.
I fell in love with it. And so I decided to digitize them all.
I hope you enjoy them! I made them with love.

I'm not completely sure, but I think that Clement was a Didot's apprentice, who then started his own foundry. If anyone has more info on that, I will appreciate it.
I need help finding the font for this #5. i dont have any other characters to help out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Looking to settle a discussion over which is the appropriate symbol to denote a negative number: a hyphen or an en dash. Haven't been able to find any definitive rules or historical samples of this. Opinions and/or facts are appreciated.
Can someone please identify what the font is for the page number please?
any font recommendation for use on printing a serial number on a product box? Need one that has clear differences between 0 and O, between B and 8, and between S and 5, and I and 1. It has been more difficult than anticipated, and it has to be clear enough for even the elderly. Thanks!
I've recently come across numerous examples of old pocket watches made for the Ottoman market bearing unfamiliar numerals. I don';t know if they're a stylized version of the standard numerals used in Arabic, or something else entirely. Can anyone shed some light on this subject?
