New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
My very first typefaces Sadness and Grimoire have just been published in new and revised versions at Myfonts. After the tragic end of the established Fountain Type Foundry I had to ask myself the following question: Is there still any justification for the existence of my 20 year old fonts?

Hi all, I expect find you fine in this new year. This is my first entrance of 2015, now releasing my latest type project CAMINITO, a layered font family inspired in Argentinean art craft «Fileteado Porteño». I started this project 2 years ago, taking inspiration from numerous ads, posters and signs installed along the city of Buenos Aires. Now the font family is available at MyFonts.com
So, I have a ton of vintage type specimen books and wood type references, but I'm looking for some particular knowledge/advice. I'm working on the brand for a restaurant that is described as "John D. Rockefeller and Theodore Roosevelt enjoying a whiskey together."
Obviously, there is a ton of reference to Victorian and Art Nouveau which would come right before and Bauhaus / De stijl which would come right after, but I'm trying to pinpoint if there is a typographic "style" that would have appeared in New York City in the year 1900. I'm trying to avoid "western" (wood type) and european (overly ornamental)...
any thoughts and resources/examples would be very much appreciated! Thank you!

I've been looking and not really finding lettering from the 1930-1950 - real lettering, not remakes of.
The "Vespa" style is what I'd really like to find more of. Car logos have been my best resource so far,
but industrial style product or company logos would really be good. Attached is some of what I've found.
Any help would be much appreciated.
I found this image in an old french book of lettres. I was wondering if it could be desaturated and made into a font somehow. I do not have the resources or the know-how to do this. If you're able to do this and don't mind, I'd be very appreciative if you could send me over the .otf or .ttf file.
Just wondering if anyone got a hi res scan of this? I want to use it for a project, but can't find a digital version. Only a non-outline version called "Lucifer" have been digitalised. Not sure why it's called that. Was there never a Pluto Regular?

I'm working on a project where we need some old school style numbers for prices. Can anyone name the typeface in the image, or suggest an interesting equivalent.
Many thanks in advance as always...
Lichtspiele — A typocalypse display typeface
Cinemas from the early 20th Century are called "Lichtspiele" in Germany. "Lichtspiele" transports you back to a time where neon lights and marquee letters decorated cinema facades.
Of the 5 styles, three have two versions of italics - one for each perspective. Display is your basic style. Neon is inspired by the old neon letters found outside cinemas.
Add Neon Outline to Display or Neon to add another layer to your artwork. Neon 3D is a extruded version of Neon. Screen Credits is based on the liner notes of movie posters.

this is my first attempt at type creation as an amateur type designer.
I would love to hear from you,
Do not hesitate to criticise!
Hello, I found this vintage poster online, and I really like the font at the bottom of the poster. I tried a couple different methods to try and see if there was a font for it, but didn't find anything. I figured maybe someone has seen the font before or maybe something similar?
The link to the actual poster is below. I am also attaching a rough tracing of the font as a jpeg in case that helps.
Thanks in advance!
I've enjoyed the posts on this site a lot but never posted. I thought it was time to post a question to the users here. I'm having some trouble finding the font I have in my mind.
I'm designing a game with a retro feel in the genre of Evel Knievel. Trying to plan out a couple cool fonts to use. One for title's more bold and one for small block text. I thought this was a smart community to ask for some input. ;)
So far I've got Canadice, Funkydori, and Benuiat charisma.
I appreciate any help or direction.
Alianza is a complex typographic system wich includes three different but complementary styles so far: Slab, italic and script, with nine weights each one; plus three sets of ornamental fonts: labels, negative labels and ornaments.
The soul of the family is a slab feeling applied judiciously to the italic and script styles to make it coherent with the whole system.
Each style has three sets of figures: Proportional lining, tabular lining and old style.
You can mix the three styles in a single piece to obtain more expressive results without worring about the uniformity and complementing the design by using the ornamental sets.

Hi, I'd like to know if anybody can identify these 2 fonts?
I'm a noobie at font identifying and the online ID sites couldn't find an exact match.
Any close font ID's are welcomed as well. Thanks!
Any ideas on this one? have hunted high and low, have come close but no cigar.
Type purists may be appalled by the lack of adherence to traditional forms, but the font should be seen as only “in the spirit of” blackletter, and attempting something that hasn’t been seen or done before—something that feels traditional, yet at the same time fresh and perhaps unexpected.
Hey Guys !
