(x) Famous Five TV show typeface - ITC Souvenir {Jan}

Hello,

I'm hoping you can help. A collegue of mine has been trying to find this font for quite some time. Google research seems to have turned up very little, but maybe some of you typophiles might know.

It's from the Famous Five TV show screened during the 70's, hopefully this image will help with identification.

Just for clarification, it's the "Famous Five" text rather than Enid's singnature :)

Thanks in Advance,

Sam.

19th-century American typefaces?

Forums: 

Maybe I'm just using the wrong keywords, but I'm finding this surprisingly hard to find on Google. I'm hoping the Typophile think-tank can help point me in the right direction. :-)

We're rebranding a company that was founded in the early 19th century (yes, they're *that* old) in the United States, and we're trying to find authentic typefaces from the era, or modern reinterpretations that offer a comparable effect.

I don't know what the early 19th-century designers used, whether they were American typefaces or imported, but whatever was relatively common at the time for promotional materials, we're hoping to emulate as closely as reasonably possible.

PHL Solari Departure Board

This is a sample from the Solari split-flap "Train Information" board at Amtrak's PHL 30th St. Station. I suspect the typeface on the flaps is a custom job (presented as monospaced on single-character flaps, but kerned on longer place-name flaps), but I'm looking for something with a similar feel. So far the best I've got is Whitney Condensed Book or Medium; which will work fine, but I still wanted to see if there were any other opinions.

Thanks!

Retro/vintage TV script font - various suggestions {Rainer}

Hi there,

Looking for something similar to this retro/vintage script font (used on an 80s portuguese tv show).
The letters aren't even the same so this is probably all handwritten - but I'm desperately looking for something like this.

The words are cut - it read 'ora' and 'olha' (the complete words would be 'agora escolha').

Thanks in advance!

(x) Bi-linear Typefaces / like M in Marathon - various suggestions {Jan}

I'm looking for a typeface like this one. Everyone has seen these "bi-linear" retro fonts or whatever you call them.

I'm looking for a professionally done typeface like this. One similar in shape to lets say an Avenir or Futura, but with the line through it obviously.

Any help?

help with cool retro logo hand drawing!

Hi everybody,

I was referred to this site from a "font fan". I know this is a hand drawing, but maybe someone out there knows something! This vintage hand drawn RCA logo is the inspiration for our album cover. if anyone knows a similar font i can use to get close, I'll add the lightning bolt with our graphic artist. our name is
" ristband " so the "R" and "A" need to be pretty exact.

here are other links:

this one's the best

(x) Very extended retro slab serif - (similar to) Hellenic Wide {Lex}

I've seen this nice light extended slab serif typeface on 50s-60s signage, parking garages, schools, libraries, and old wood type block printing, but could never identify it! It's not Adore, Memphis, Serifa, Egyptienne, Beton... but it kind of resembles an extended Stymie, especially with the pointy bottom of the "N". I used to admire it daily on my way to the A Train in Bed-Stuy on a school on Malcolm X Blvd.

thanks all,
Scott

(x) Vintage 50s Era Typography - Coronet, Gill Sans {Mark S, Viviane Tubiana}

Hey everyone, new to the board and glad to be here.

I need help in identifying this particular typeface. It's taken from the drink cup of "The Hamburger Stand" (formerly known as The Original Hamburger Stand), a chain of food joints in the Southwestern United States. The Galardi Group is the parent company if that helps in identifying design/marketing houses they may have worked with for producing this updated logo in the 90s. Any help in identifying this or similar fonts would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

elvis font

Any help much appreciated.
