Temple expiatori de la Sagrada Familia

Hello typophile,

I'm wracking my brain trying to identify this typeface, and what makes it worse is that I believe I once identified it and have since forgotten. My mind is a sieve, but I usually remember font names, apparently not this time.

The closest I could come up with would be a condensed version of Sahara Bodoni, but I fear it's actually a Didot and not a Bodoni. Another one that was suggested to me was Bitstream Industrial 700, but I was told that is not quite correct either.

It's lovely and driving me mad, any ideas?

Preto Semi

Forums: 

Hello people!
I am 99% finished with the Preto Sans and Preto Serif family. Now I am working on Preto Semi.

It is an experimental text type, where I am working with serif, changing their function and trying to create a "better sans with some contrast". The serif is placed on the position, where it is logical to fill empty spaces (making the color of the text more even), or when the thin lines need serif to balance contrast, or serifs are placed on end strokes.

Look at the pdf in the attachment.

What do you think of it?

SEDAN, A baroque serif typface

Forums: 

Hello Typophiles!
--------------------------------------------------
We are proud to announce our new release!
--------------------------------------------------

"SEDAN" by Sebastián Salazar: a roman text font focused on the proportions and morphology of early Baroque type faces. The constructional principle of Sedán is still Renaissance, but its expression and details are drawn from the typography of the 17th and 18th centuries.

In larger sizes, is elegant and eye-catching; in the smaller sizes, however, Sedán seems to be very legible despite its spicy characters.

English Moderns?

Forums: 

I'm looking for a good serif for a project with a late 19th century look to it (Alternate Gothic and Clarendon bold are also involved).

I think I'd like to use something like Brunel (http://www.christianschwartz.com/brunel.shtml) or Benton Modern Display (http://www.fontbureau.com/fonts/BentonModernDisplay/).

The former seems to be in limited release and the latter could work but I'd like to know what other similar fonts are out there. I tried to search for information on "English Modern" (Which is what the designer says Brunel is) but I can't find anything.

I know the moderns like Bodoni, Century and Modern No. 20 but I don't think they're right for this.

What do you think?

Uppercase, serif, fat face, extreme stroke variation, with some slab-like serifs and one numeral. And one VERY ODD bracket.

I know there must be hundreds of variations of the so-called English “fat faces”, but is there a close relative - or perfect match! - to these three letterforms? And yes, the resolution and detail in one of the attached files are unfortunately both lousy.

The smaller “4AD” file was taken from the official website. The “larger” one seems probably an stylization or maybe an earlier incarnation, as the counters seems to occupy much more space.

Thanks in advance and have a good day, typophiles!

: )

Uppercase, serif, sloping brackets, medium variation on stroke. Plus italics... or slanted letterforms, I would not know.

It is part of the book jacket from a Spanish novel. Is the typeface that states the author's name condensed or that's just the way the typeface was designed? And what's with the non-closing P letterform?

Thank you all in advance!

Font Family Suggestions

Forums: 

I'm looking for a font family of san serif and sans which would look great for a scientific book design. It will be on string theory. Any suggestions would be great.

The fonts I like are:

http://usfonts.gestalten.com/t-star.html
https://ourtype.com/#/try/pro-fonts/fakt/
http://usfonts.gestalten.com/blender-pro.html

But I need to use a type with a sans serif and serif version rather than using two typefaces.
