Hey was doing a logotype for a furniture company, would love some feedback on this.

Hello everybody,

I've been reading a lot about typefaces and how different kinds can be combined in order to create layers of meaning. Type foundries usually suggest pairings for their own fonts, most notably Hoefler & Frere Jones and Font Bureau. I am looking to create an unusual mix of moods for a personal branding project:

- Hearty, friendly
- Weird, quirky
- Contemplative, dramatic

You can think of this mix as the equivalent of a Wes Anderson, Sylvain Chomet, or even a Spike Jonze film. Sort of like what film critic Peter Rainer writes about Spike Jonze's film, Being John Malkovich:
“It is hard to mix moods -- the film is manic, subtle, comic and vaguely sad -- but [Jonze] does it masterfully.”

LTC Italian Old Style was originally released by P22/Lanston Type Company in 2006. The font, based on Frederic Goudy's interpretation of Nicholas Jenson's Roman face as well as other Renaissance Roman faces, has been newly updated by James Grieshaber for the Lanston Type Company. LTC Italian Old Style Pro is now offered as a pro font family containing 4 styles- Regular, Italic, Light and Light Italic. OpenType features include the original ligatures, small caps and expanded language coverage. The Roman styles, Regular and Light, also welcome the addition of ornaments.

I've spent a week or more trying to identify the type in Magenta in this image (Comoy's and Pipe)

Of particular difficulty is finding a face where the M is splayed so much. Some characters are close to Engravers MT, but certainly not the M.

Thank you for your help.

Need some help identifying this font. It looks kinda like Stencil Antiqua but it has the distress cut marks. Any ideas?

I am in dire need of identifying the two fonts on the image. Both the Name Above, and the word Punkintown. The former designer was unable to provide the font names. The upper looks similar to ITC Bradley Hand, just not the exact font. The "K" in Punkintown seems almost manually created such as via Photoshop, but just not figuring it out. Help! Thank you!

Hi Everyone,

Can anyone identify the serif fonts used on these stamps?

Serif = Antiqua? (Perhaps a little thin?)
Blackletter = Fette Fraktur?

Thanks

Im working with Landmark family fonts [http://www.typography.com/fonts/landmark/overview/ ] as my title font, looking for subtitle and Main body 'modernist' font that works with Landmark's appeal. I feel a serif family would work well but can figure which?

Hi

Can anyone help me identity this...

Thanks

HWT Slab features two styles-Antique and Columbian. These two extra bold fonts are classic slab serif wood type styles with one detail of difference. Columbian is an extra bold Clarendon wood type that was manufactured by many of the wood type manufacturers in the late 19th century. "Clarendons" feature bracketed or rounded serif joins whereas "Antique" was a class of typefaces that features squared off slab serifs. Some type designs have only minor differences from others. The Columbian design is essentially identical to Wm. Page & Co.'s "Antique no. 4", with the difference being the bracketed serifs.

Hello

We would love to know what body font is used on this very popular series of books published in the late 80s by Time-Life http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mysteries_of_the_Unknown

As ever, many thanks for your time and expertise!

Any ideas much appreciated!

Hello

I am looking to find out more about the serif font used in BLAST 1, the famous British Vorticist publication. THe sample attached is of the serif face in question, the rest of the publication primarily uses a heavy Grot.

If you don't know it already, well worth a look at some truly avant-garde typography considering the context. http://dl.lib.brown.edu/mjp/render.php?view=mjp_object&id=1143209523824844

thanks as always for any time and assistance.

Hi, can you please help me ID this font? I took this picture from the cover of Aperture magazine.

Hello! Found this example on p136 of the Solotype catalog.

According to the Solopedia - http://abfonts.freehostia.com/solopedia/solopedia-l.htm - this font is a match for something called 'Bulldog' I cant find this anywhere, wondering if anyone had another similar typeface?

As always, may thanks for any assistance...

Hello,

I am wondering what font is used in the book "A Streetcar Named Desire"--specifically the script and stage directions. A photo is attached (screencap from Amazon). More samples can be found at the Amazon look inside preview. The ISBN is 978-0-8112-1602-9.

Thanks!

I've been wracking my brain and searching my type books trying to identify the typeface regularly used on the cover of vintage Harlequin romance novels, but so far I've had no luck.

The good news is I have an extensive sample character set:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/17582217/FileChute/harlequin_sample.png

It's not Tiffany, though some of the letters are clearly close.

Does anyone have any guesses? This is driving me crazy!

Thank you in advance for any help!

I'm developing some custom type to be used on a sign adorning the boat barn my father is building. A stencil serif was requested and this is what I've come up with. It needs some cleaning up, as I drew it with the AI Blob Brush tool, but I'd be curious what others see regarding proportions and overall aesthetics. Once I'm happy with the type I'll manipulate it into a cohesive design around a half-hull model of the boat being built, which will live in the barn during the off-season.
