New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Looking for this ID or something similar. Thanks.
I am looking for a script that would have been used in Germany (specifically the Hessen-Kassel region) in the last quarter of the 18th century. As I understand it, this would have been some type of Fraktur with the long s and ligatures. Perhaps someone here could point me in the right direction?
In the process of designing a typeface, I'm wondering if it's worth the effort to design glyphs for currencies that are not in use anymore, like pesetas and francs. I realize the symbols might still be in use for historical reasons, but in a display face, I think it's rather unlikely.
How do you guys do? What do you think?
Does anyone know the name of the font in the attached pic?
Thanks for help!
Looking to identify this. Tweet me if you know what it is. My twitter handle is @bwaggoner. If you ID it correctly, I'll send you a HOOK t-shirt. Thanks!
I am not a graphic designer here... So I was hoping to ask for help from the experts!
This isn't so much as an font identification question, but a request for a font recommendation. I've been able to trace this image in Illustrator for use in a 15' map graphic that will be inscribed in granite. I like the historic handwritten look of the lettering. However but when I trace the text the font shapes look terrible. I've been thinking about replacing the text outlines with an actual font, which would save me from having to shape the curves to something pleasing to the eye?
Do you have any recommendations? Map was drawn in 1850.
