Hi friends, I am using Whitney font for headlines and I am thinking of using Sentinel for body text. Wondering if anybody has any comments about this choice since its a slab serif like Clarendon and so I am not sure if those fonts are meant more to be used for headlines reather than body text. So if you have any insights about this they would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

And here is a link to the Sentinel font:

I'm looking for a new kind of Clarendon for a project I'm working on. I've been using HFJ's Sentinel for now, but I'm looking with something just a little further removed from the original Clarendon. Any pointers?

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.

My new typeface, "Columbia Titling", is now on sale at MyFonts and for a limited time is just $8 for four weights!

Columbia Titling is an titling-caps display family based on wide Clarendon-style wood type and industrial signage design from the late-19th and early-20th Century. It includes a small set of OpenType features, including both tabular and proportional figures, special superscript ordinal suffixes, underlined superscript alternate letters, and OpenType fractions. The typeface takes its name from the historic S.S. Columbia, a steamboat launched in 1903. Though not a true reproduction, the wide, slab serif letterforms on the front of the Columbia's wheelhouse provided some inspiration for to develop this typeface. Enjoy!

The Clarendon-like face here is impossible to find. Can anyone help?

Small chance it's a custom logotype, but I'm doubting it.


I have a question, someone have some fonts came from Canadian Type??!?!
I have, but I have a dubt, I can't understand why for example in the Clarendon Text font the alternate ligatures are not in the same file of the file of the text. It's quite an inconvenient situation, because when I use some Canadian Type if I want to set my text with alternate ligatures I can't do it in a easy way in illustrator or in indesign, but I must search and replace the couples of letters that need alternate ligatures...
why they made font files so strange?!?!?!
do you have the same problem with fonts from Canadian Type?!?!??!

thank you for your attention

Hello! I'm a long-time lurker and this is my first posting. I have been assigned a re-design of a website and I've decided to use Clarendon for the site's branding. What I am looking for is a clean, complementary sans-serif font to pair with it, and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions? The site is for a News professional.

Thank you so much!

Anyone can help me identfying this font?
Found some similar but not the specific one.
