Hebrew typeface for gravestone / headstone design...

Please see my earlier posting with a similar request for help in choosing an English-language typeface for gravestone / headstone design. That posting is here:


My difficulty with selection of Hebrew typeface is a good deal greater, since the only Hebrew typeface I already own is "Adobe Hebrew". So, it's harder for me to easily play around with different typeface choices.

Any thoughts or suggestions, please?


Guidance with selecting typeface for family gravestone...

Subject: Guidance with selecting typeface for family gravestone...

[First time poster, here. Just did comprehensive search of the forums for similar questions, and understandably found only a few on target (last one back in 2011).]

Hi all,

I appreciate any guidance you might provide on this matter --- I'm trying to select a typeface for the burial headstone for a close female family member (passed away at ripe old age). I'd like the typeface to convey a sense of her strong family ties, as well as her great warmth combined with her no-nonsense/resilient approach to life.

Research Help: Gravestone Typography

Hey all,

Long time fan, first time poster. My name is Gus Wezerek. I'm a visual journalism student at Northwestern University. For one of my classes I'm writing an paper about contemporary gravestone typography. I've seen the thread here with the man who was soliciting help with a relative's tombstone design, but the paper is a bit too broad for his case.

Would anyone be willing to chat on the phone or email/point me in promising directions? I'm just looking for ideas about what makes (or you think would make) a good face for stone, special cases of gravestone typography or really anything you guys know or would be willing to speak about on the topic.
