1950s

Thanks for your help!

Three weeks to Christmas:)

Dear all!

I’m doing a project for my MA in Communication at ESAD (Escola Superior de Artes e Design) in Porto, Portugal. The theme of the project is Italian Graphics during the period between 1930 and 1960. I need your help to try to identify some of the typefaces used in some of the publications (see attachments) that were printed at the time. Many thanks in advance.

Kind regards,
Ricardo Calabaça

Greater Albion Typefounders have just released two new typefaces on Myfonts.

Eccles is another of our 'Early Victorian' typefaces, a series we started with the Wolverhampton family a little while ago. It might be described as 'extreme-Tuscan' in style but has a delicacy that many other Tuscan faces seem to lack. It's ideal for giving design projects a clear period feel, particularly in design and advertising work. We also see it haveing considerable application in preparing invitations to a certain type of happy event. At the other extreme, some of our younger associates have described it as 'your latest Steampunk font'. So perhaps we'll just have to settle on it having a split personality...

Greater Albion have just released two new families through Fontspring and Myfonts.com.

The first of these, Cirflex was inspired by a 1930s shop sign, and makes an ideal typeface for Streamline Era and Art Deco design. Cirflex is offered in regular and bold weights.

Looking for suggestions on a font very similar to the attached.

Dom Diagonal Bold is so far the best I've identified. http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/bitstream/dom-casual/dom-diagonal-bold/

Any others?
