Guido, a gothic type from Italy


I've made a basic (very basic) font based on an italian gothic script. At the moment I've included lowercase letters, some contextual alternates, basic punctuation and common accented glyph for italian.

[for some reasons I can't insert images: you can see the pdf and my flickr page]

This 'gotica corsiva' was used in XIV century to write books in italian language, hence the copies of Dante's Commedia, etc. are written in that way.

Font Recommendation


Wondering what fonts you recommend that are between:


Ideally its not another free font, would like something a little more pro. I really like Mandatory but it only has one weight. Perhaps its built off of (or stolen from) another font?

Thanks Guys,

(x) a common extended typeface of old electronics - Microgramma aka Eurostile Extended {Ryuk, Riccardo}

I have an old Sanyo portable cassette player, and the labels on it are in an extended typeface that was relatively common for electronics back when transistor amplification (solid-state) was a whole new thing. I'd ideally like to find a set of it in movable type, but the name of the face would be a good start. I'm sure it has plenty of clones, so if anyone knows of one, it'd do for now.

"Roster" - New Font up for Critique


I've been working on this font for about 5 months, and I figure it's about time to get some fresh eyes on it. It's designed to work at both text and display sizes -- my goal is for it to be bold and interesting at large sizes but be extremely legible at small sizes while taking up the least amount of room.

I currently have seven different weights, though I am also planning on doing a set of obliques (I will probably do true italic characters as alternates, or vice-versa) as well as small caps/fractions/old-style figures/other OpenType features.

Let me know what you think!

A complemental typeface for Avant Garde Gothic Pro

Hi I am currently looking for a complemental font to go with Avant Garde Gothic Pro.
I will be using it for kind of short length text.
My problem is that AGGP Draws alot of attention to itself and I need to find a balance between the copy text and the display font (which will be AGGP)

Right now I am thinking of using any of the web-safe fonts to have it a bit easier on my online portfolio.
But I am not quite shure any of them serifs will do the job.

But what do you think am I stupid or do you have any suggestions?

i found a set of gothic condensed movable type... help?

i found this set in the publishing building of an old mental hospital (along with a bagful of peculiar negatives, but that's not relevant to this forum). i'm not sure what the typeface is. please excuse how dirty they are, i have yet to acetone them.

any help? if you know someone i could contact, that would help too. the internet is a nasty place to google up "movable type" because there's a publishing software by the same name.
