*I went through The Anatomy Of Type and selected some, then got this.
This is the rough draft of a font. Which /g/, /k/, and /&/ do you like the most? Does the /y/ fit? And what should the tittles on the /i/ be?
Lichtspielhaus Handmade is an ultra condensed handwritten typeface based on Lichtspielhaus.

Pendula™ is an adaptation of Pittorseques Droites (Scenic Casual) found in the circa 1924 specimen book of La Fonderie Typographique Francaise. Changes to a very small number of the original characters were made to make the typeface work better with more languages, as well as for aesthetic reasons. A newly designed Cyrillic character set was added to make the design even more useful, enlarging the character set from the basic Latin set to over 650 glyphs covering seven languages. Pendula™ also includes tabular and proportional number sets plus a bonus set of over thirty monetary symbols. Other international symbols were included too. It is a wonderfully casual and flexible design, usable in many situations.
Kind of new to typophile, sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this question.

It's my first time here, so I'll quickly introduce myself: I'm Carel Fransen, graphic designer from the Netherlands, and currently working on my graduation projects.
For my project, I'm looking for a quality condensed font with a large x-height that does great at small corps-sizes (approx. 6-7 pt).
I have got one font that works very well: Bureau Grot Light. However, I'd like to have some options. Unfortunately, due to the "advanced search"-mechanisms on big font-sites not being that advanced, it's nearly impossible to search for something this specific.

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.
You can get it at MyFonts for a introduction price of 29,85 USD
I'm looking for a font that is near identical to Gotham Condensed Ultra. I would purchase this font from Hoefler but do not sell this font on it's own but combine it with the set for £500! Anyway, I would love to hear from someone who could suggest a couple of alternatives.
We are happy to release our latest typeface, we hope you like it.
Baton is a sans serif typeface with narrow proportions combining eccentric shapes inspired by french vernacular typography with the simplicity of modern sans serifs. Peculiar details and a low contrast make the design slightly strange yet elegant, but it is the exaggerated high and low midline in the uppercase and the small x-height which give Baton its distinctive flair. Relatively wider and more toned down, the lowercase allow Baton to function not only as a display typeface, but also for short texts such as leads in magazine.
Chefscript Typeface - Buy licenses at MyFont
Chef Script is an experimental font designed by Carlos Fabian Camargo G. Its fantasy design contains 1463 glyphs to compose words, phrases and short messages on small and large sizes. The idea was born in a sketchbook that was perfected again by hand and achieving "non-neutral drawings" on tracing paper. With bezier digitization the empty and full parts of letters appeared with soft and eloquent curves as calligraphic result produces optimal readability.
Any help in identifying this font would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Pardon my ignorance of typographic vocabulary--
I'm looking for recommended typefaces that are condensed or have a condensed version in which the leg of the capital R descends below the baseline and is curved. (what is that called?)
Thanks in advance!
In my job, I have to deal with folks who have very little attention span. Often I have to write elevator-pitch summaries for which Narrow / Condensed fonts work much better than Regular version of fonts. Also, earlier I had been using Garamond or Cambria for printed-out presentations, but after reading articles about Baskerville font, I tried out Baskerville Old Face. While the switched to Baskerville Old Face hasn't noticeably improved any success rates, I have received more positive comments about the presentations.
Are there any font recommendations that are simultaneously BOTH
(a) Narrow / Condensed
(b) based on Baskerville (Old Face)
Freely available font recommendations will be much appreciated.
does anyone know of a typeface that is similar to the one attached here?

My question is about that wood type that i have in my letterpress cabinet.
I would like know the name and maybe some about the history...
After almost seven years of putting it off the time has finally come to assemble a portfolio and stationary etc. Over the last few months I've been looking at a number of typefaces to use for 'branding' myself so to speak and have almost certainly settled on Akzidenz Grotesk Condensed Light and Regular.

In the April 7th 2013 issue of New York Times Magazine, they use a rounded-condensed Sans Serif that has square tops (sorry for the incorrect terminology) on the capital A. Anyone know what this is or who makes it? (See attached image)
