Serif typeface...


Can anyone help me identity this...


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.


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

As ever, many thanks for your time and expertise!


Any ideas much appreciated!


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.

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 - - 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...

Font name please

Hi, could you help me find what font this is? I appreciate your help.




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.


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:

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.

Thank You!

What serif typeface is the Automatic Eye logo based on? Many thanks.

Hi guys, hope I am in the right part of the forum to ask this question.

I am looking for a nice old style font face that has a real small caps font and is also available somewhere with an app license for smartphones. The actual font I wanted to use was "Minion Pro", but Adobe doesn`t provide app licensing for their fonts yet : (

As an alternative I found "Sabon" via, but still wanted to ask you guys what you have been using and how it worked out with the licensing for you.

Thanks in advance : )

This late 19th century design conjures up early 20th century Dutch DeStijl lettering with a mostly strict adherence to right angles and minimal stroke modulation. Geometric began its life as a metal typeface from the Central Type Foundry, circa 1884. Soon after, this design was officially licensed to Morgan & Wilcox and was shown in their 1890 catalog in Regular, Light and Condensed Light variations. After acquiring Morgan & Wilcox, Hamilton Manufacturing offered Geometric Light Face Condensed as their own No 3020 and the Geometric Light Face as No 3021.

I'm about to buy the Plume Advertising font from Dalton Maag for a project. It is just a slab serif as voluptuous and playful as I need, but I'm with a little doubt.

Considering the specific composition of words below, what do you people think is the best version of "R"? The upper version is the original one, and below is the one I effed up with.

I just can't come to a conclusion on which version better balances the quirky details and the color (disconsidering the shitty kerning used here). Isn't "ALEGRE" looking to much excentric in comparison to "PORTO" in my version?

Hope you can help me! :)

Serif font for Skyrim?

Hey everyone! Long time no see. :)

I'm looking for the font that says "Dawnguard" in this photo. I thought it was Trajan but the W's don't match. Any ideas?

Thank you!

Hey all, any ideas what this is?



Hi can someone please tell me what font is being used in the attached image.
I tried using the automated font recognition tool at but the closest match it could find (which was not an exact match) was ITC Weidemann Medium.
The document that I have uploaded is a snippet of a scanned image of a document that was printed in 1992, so the font must have been around before then.
