Hello all,

I found this image in an old french book of lettres. I was wondering if it could be desaturated and made into a font somehow. I do not have the resources or the know-how to do this. If you're able to do this and don't mind, I'd be very appreciative if you could send me over the .otf or .ttf file.


Hi Typophiles,

Wondering if you could help me out with IDing the fonts used on this site: Sous Style. I've also attached a screen shot.

It looks like they're using a serif (in the CSS it specifies Baskerville, but I've not known Baskerville to look like that) and an unknown "Geometric Light" embedded typeface - but I'm having no luck identifying either.

Thanks much!!

I was browsing today in the bookstore in Grand Centran Station, New York, when a magazine leapt out at me. A stylish fashion mag from Sweden, called Bon had a masthead that was very familiar. It used a typeface (Garbo) that I designed for Mecanorma in 1975, when I was a student. The font was discontinued some years back and sadly I've no reference of the entire font. Over the years I've seen Garbo used on everything from neon brasseries signage in Paris to ice cream parlours in Phuket, but I think Bon make it look pretty cool.

What's everyone's opinion: bullet points vs. paragraph ad copy? I'm talking about a full page ad here, and meaningful communication with the reader. Are bullet points boring? Is paragraph-style copy too intimidating to read? Does it depend on the situation?

Hi all, just wandering if there is a correct way to treat the space around an ellipssis (…) or if it is just a mater of taste. I general follow these two rules (rightly or wrongly):

1. If the ellipsis falls at the start or end of a sentence then I do not separate the ellipsis with a space.

e.g. “Up to 50% off…”
e.g. “…this week only.”

2. If the ellipsis indicates omitted text within the middle of a sentence then I add a space either side.

e.g. “I have no idea if this is correct … I wish I knew the answer”

Any help?
