Does anyone know what the primary font is (heading and body) in the attached ad, and if there is a modern digital version of it? My intuition tells me that if there were, I would see it used, because it really is beautiful. It seems to have been very common back in its day, but I'd never seen it until I recently started looking at old print ads and such.
I'd like to make sure I've researched it thoroughly before putting in the time to recreate it myself. Any help is much appreciated. I'm a new member on this forum, so hello to all.
Would love if you experts could help me ID this font. It's awesome!
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.
Trying to figure out the serif typeface used in the CautionWear logo. All responses are appreciated!
I am on the lookout for a well typeset Bible. I am most interested in finding one that's set in a nice serif face, ideally with some contemporary styling (e.g. something like Fedra, or Tiempos), but I'm open to any good suggestions. I've had a look at http://www.bibledesignblog.com/ but he's a bit more focused on binding & materials than the typesetting.
Thanks for any good direction you can point me in.
Any idea what the font on the invite is? I've found similar, but certain characters (e.g. W, f, apostrophes) and the spacing are always different.
Thanks in advance!
Reading Zeit Wissen I was marvelling at how beautiful Publico is until I realized that it's not Publico.
Sorry for the poor image quality, but it's late and I need to know what this Serif is or I won't sleep tonight…
I would be glad to have your opinion concerning the Neue Frutiger 1450 released by Monotype. I've also seen that they have published an article : "DIN 1450 – the German standard on legibility of texts" which could be seen as a marketing argument to justify, and sell this 1450 serie. (Maybe I'm wrong?).
I've seen some tough feedbacks on Twitter today by some weel known and hi-skilled type designers :
The typeface Frutiger myth was just devastated by a marketing trick today.
Hi there! I'm desperately trying to find the name of this font - it is bold - it almost looks like a bold Shango, but as you see the "o's" of the typeface are squared off in its corners. Any help you could give would be so hugely appreciated!
I'm in a diploma in writing and publishing and am taking a class on letterpress printing. One of our assignments was to clean and identify some type cases. These are two type samples that I can't identify. I've already tried what the font and have looked through a lot of books and have come up with nothing. Similar types will not work in this case as I need to know the exact name of the type. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Hello - -this post follows up on a search fro a very similar condensed serif used for Time-Life (http://typophile.com/node/102039)
I am trying to identify the typeface used in a Hernan Bas catalogue from last year, published by Distanz in Germany... any help much appreciated, thank you!
We would love to know what 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! This post is also related to an enquiry about a similar tpyeface used on a Hernan Bas catalogue from Germany which I will be posting next...
Anybody know this font?
I mean "artifex".
Many THANX in advance!!!!
I've went through some type id discovery systems and been told that this could be Boston or Sanford. Anyone have any other ideas?
Louisville Slugger released a new logo two days ago.
Can anyone tell me the name of the serif typeface that is being used?
Please help me ID this font!
Profuse THANK YOU in advance!
I need to know this font. It's on the official test-prep for GRE and (most likely) on the actual GRE exam. My whole future is dependent on my GRE score, which in turn relies on me switching all prep materials into this test font for greater familiarity.
I tried many Serif fonts with Microsoft Word, but to my eyes, they all seem a little chubbier and shorter than this one. I don't know if this has to do with screen resolution or anything else.
Thank you again. You'll be my hero.
this is a passage from The Hearing Trumpet by Leonora Carrington, in 1996.
This is my first attempt to get competent critique about my font. So please, Don’t beat me up too hard :)
I will be very appreciated about any critics and comments.
My first serif typeface I am trying to make a little bit retro, fashy, but contemporary.
It has 5 different serif shapes depending on the position of prominent parts of letters (maybe a little bit too complicated, but I like it).
I know there are still many things to work on and improve, but the main parts I am really not sure about are sharp ends of stems. The stems are the only parts without any serifs and I guess it makes the whole face unusual.
Please look at PDF files attached below.
Does anyone have any suggestions for an elegant contemporary serif font with an 18th-century basis? Maybe a tiny tiny hint of Rococo prettiness. It's for a book on early Georgian art and furniture. Would be so grateful!
Can someone help me identify this font. I've looked everywhere and so that I don't have this problem in the future, what type of font classification does this really fall under and what type of serifs are these called? To me the font seems reminiscent of an art deco look and school/marker style, but I'm not sure of that either at this point.
Thanks for any assistance you can give me. :)
any ideas? the top of the A is a little unusual...
Anyone have any ideas? Thought is might be a condensed form of Century, but that K's got me stumped.
Here are the beginnings of a type study I did a few years back. I finally dug it out of the myriad files and folders on my desktop and decided to put it up on here for critique.
Some notes as I'm looking at this with a fresh (and more learned) perspective:
1. I'd like to go through and redo some of the weights of certain strokes (the hairline stroke atop the 'a', the bowls on 'a' and 'd')
2. I think the character widths need some refining.
3. I'd like to put different tails on the 'a' and 'd' that more closely resemble the serifs on the 'd' and 'l' ascenders.
4. The serifs to the left of the 'i' and 'l' are indeed longer than those on the right (to mirror the serifs at the top of the ascenders)
5. I'd like the dot atop the 'i' to be heavier.
