I'm looking for the font on this sign of Katz's delicatessen in NY.
This or a closer looking font.
Looking to identify this type that's commonly used for headlines in NY Magazine. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
You may recognize this as being the First Edition of Moby Dick printed in New York 1851. I am hoping to source typefaces that are from the period that have a very close DNA.
Monotype Modern seems like a logical relative but I cannot find anything condensed/compressed enough.
Your help on this is greatly appreciated.
P.S. Please omit the conjunction "OR," from your type identification.
P.P.S. My apologies if I am not using the word "Transitional" properly.
There is a job opening for a Font Administrator at the Penguin Group USA, based in New York. Below is a link to the information on their website and an overview of the requirements:
We are currently seeking a Font Administrator to support the design, marketing and managing editorial communities throughout the company by managing the processes for procurement, accessing and archiving all licensed fonts.
Specifically, the Font Administrator:
1. Negotiates agreements and interacts with our contracts department to ensure their compliance with our requirements.
2. Uploads and activates fonts on our corporate server and grants access as per the licensing agreements.
So I am currently performing an exhaustive search over the internet to find an internship calling my name in NYC. I'm a senior at the Savannah College of Art and Design and am looking for an internship over the Summer of 2011. I will do next to anything (my soul is up for bid on ebay as we speak) to further my passion for graphic design in NYC. I am very interested in web design, typography, logo design, and package design...but am willing to turn to the dark side (joke) :) advertising if I needed.
Anyone have any advice I can take and run with? Or maybe even some comments?

thanks a bunch, guys!
Cooper Union's new typeface design program, organized in conjunction with the Type Directors Club was just recently announced. It is currently a certificate program offered through Cooper's continuing education department. The new website has all the info on curriculum, faculty bios, and application details:
While there have been many type design workshops and classes offered in North America before, this is the first program of its kind to take place on the continent. Having moved to New York not too long ago myself, I must say I can't think of a better city to hold such a program in – if for nothing else than to have access to such a vast pool of talented type folks living in the area.
Furthermore, Cooper Union and the Type Directors Club couldn't be much better organizations to have involved. Among other things, Cooper has made typography a priority with their Herb Lubalin Study Center of Design and Typography, and the TDC's annual typeface awards are among the most notable in the industry. Plus it goes without saying that both have long typographic histories that include some of the greats of American type, lettering, and design.
The course list and roster of people involved for the first term alone is quite impressive (not to mention surprisingly diverse), and I'm sure the second and third terms will be just as good. More information will be posted on the site as it becomes available.
I apologize for shamelessly tooting the horn of a project I'm obviously involved with, but I'm really excited about it and thought some of you might be as well. As always, I'm appreciative of any feedback – critical or otherwise – and am happy to answer any questions.
With all the coverage of Lebron on tv lately there have been a ton of shots outside Madison Square Garden. All of the reporters seem to be in the same place and I couldn't help but notice the lettering on the awning behind them (pictured).
At first glance I thought this to be ITC Blair or Sackers Gothic Heavy but the G doesn't match up. Anybody have any idea whether this is actually a typeface or just a modification of one of the others?
Two more workshops are being offered at Cooper Union this spring in lettering: "Organic Capitals" April 17 & 18 and "Compressed Styles (Black letter)" May 1 & 2. To see complete workshop details www.cooper.edu/ce
These workshops are appropriate for people who have some background in lettering or calligraphy and are already
comfortable using a broad edged pen. Absolute beginners will struggle but if you're up for the challenge Julian is an excellent teacher to begin with.
You've seen this concept before. A city made of type. This time for the New York Times. http://vimeo.com/6753268
