Looking for a serif with reading a's and g's

I'm brand new here and something of an ingenue at this whole typography game, but it's something I'm interested in and looking to learn about. To that end, I'd like some help from you.

I need to get my hands on a nice serif – a fairly traditional one preferably – with 'reading' a's and g's. This is intended for body text in a novel-style text, so shouldn't really be so markedly different in any other way from what you might normally find. A lot of nice serif fonts have suitable italics, but the Roman or book styles have the arc overhead (although I don't know what that's called).

Thanks for your time.

Will Pearson Panoramic Photographer Logotype

Hello Fellow Typophiles,

I was contacted by a photographer to create a custom logotype for him. He had seen an identity I did for another photographer and said that those letterforms resonated with him, and he would like something similar. Will is a very talented panoramic photographer and after perusing his personal website I decided that this logotype needed to be wide. I also wanted his logotype to work nicely with a complementary typeface so that I could write:
"WILL PEARSON PANORAMIC PHOTOGRAPHER"
all in one line, to create a panorama of sorts. [See WillPearson_LogoType_01.jpg for example ]

Help ID this typeface, please!

Hi,

I'm desperately seeking the name of this typeface.

It is used in some of the printed materials for T2 (the tea company) and is featured on the website for SAE Creative (http://www.saecreative.com.au/). Please forgive the subtleties in the attached images, this typeface is used for animated sections that fade in and out, so it is virtually impossible to screen-capture them with any clarity. Please see the link to the SAE Creative website to see the typeface in action. The 1 in particular is very distinctive (see contact page on the SAE website, or second attached image).

Would be so appreciative of any help.

Thanks so much!

Baskerville-inspired exploration

Forums: 

For a while I've been too scared to attempt anything other than a display font because text faces are a totally different kind of beast. Alas, working off of the open-ness of the Baskervilles I've looked at, I'm trying to design my first for-text typeface. It's intended to be used at around 9pt. So, to further demystify the inner workings and details that create a readable text face, can I get a crit on the lowercase glyphs I have so far?

Fonts that bridge the gap between Serif and Sans.

Hello.

I'm working on a project and the main font for the logo (company name) is hard to pin down. It doesn't work with fonts like Helvetica and nor does it work with traditional serif fonts. I'm looking for a modern font that's clean but has a bit of flair (hope that makes sense lol). Sorry for being vague, if people could post up some suggestions it would really help me out!

Many thanks
Dave

Mynaruse Royale, an expansion of Mynaruse with script capitals.

Forums: 

Mynaruse Royale is an expansion of Mynaruse Titling. It features script capitals and widely tracked and smaller titling capitals. Mynaruse Royale has plenty of character and, with its powerful and sharp serifs that draw the eye. Mynaruse Royale is useful in settings that call for titling with an extra touch of elegance, such as a storefront, wedding program or formal invitation.
Mynaruse Royale contains a number of OpenType alternates, including alternate forms for the capitals that are large, drop cap like capitals instead of the calligraphic script capitals found in the default forms. Additionally there are non widely tracked lowercase forms that work well with the included alternate characters and ligatures.

italic serif from french paperback book Editions Gallimard, folio classique (copyrighted 1973 and 1995)

I'm trying to identify a font used in the body text of Les Misérables I by Victor Hugo, from a "folio classique", Edition d'Yves Gohin, ISBN 2-07-040922-8, copyrighted 1973 and 1995.

The most unique thing about this font is the italic "f", which has a slightly curved, almost straight edge on the bottom. This characteristic alone eliminates most famous serif fonts, I think. Also, the italic "b", ""d", "l" letters begin from the top with a curved, tapered hook. The italic "z" resembles the Times, as well as the italic "v".
