Retro 3D font?

Hi guys,

Does anyone know which font this is? Maybe you know any fonts that look smilar?

Thanks,

H.

I created an account just so I could ask this question:

What is the font used in this Media Kit? Specifically, what is the font used for the fancy "Ands" and "Thes" with the flourishes above/below. Is this even a font?

Your help is appreciated!

Any help identifying this font (or a similar font!!!) would be much appreciated. I'm about to pull my hair out.

Hi! Would like to seek help in identifying the font in the attached image. The numbers are really cut in half as a design treatment, so that's all I can provide.

Appreciate your help! :) Thanks!

Having trouble identifying the typeface used on these old signs, and the dates that they were in use. I could dig up a few conflicting dates, between early 1900's and into the 40's, but haven't found anything definite. Also, they were apparently printed white on Navy, and used in several neighborhoods in New York. I checked a couple type specimen books from the 1905-1915 era and got nothing. Any help identifying this typeface would be greatly appreciated!

Any ideas what either of these could be, please? Especially the top one.
Thanks!

Hi all!

LOVE this poster, and have been wanting to ID the "yes" in old Open signs for awhile so I thought I'd throw this up and see if anyone can ID it. Thanks so much Typophilers!

Looking for some feedback on this logo I designed for a photo restoration business I am starting. I wanted something with a retro/vintage feel, without being too kitschy. I think I have succeeded at that here, but I am looking for some outside opinion. Thanks.

I have a small graphic with an assortment of vintage typefaces right here:

Since they are so old I don't know if they are still in commercial print, but if anyone can tell me what they are (or were?) AND if there are any modern counterparts or look-alikes, that would be very helpful to me!

Hi

Does anybody know the name of the Serif font used for the company name and "Universal Embrocation"?

Also, if anybody can comfirm the sans serifs used too I'd be grateful.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,
This is an example of a movie-poster typeface drawn by German poster designer Hans Otto Wendt. I am looking for a font with a similar feel. What I particularly love is the brushstroke-look this has goin' on.
Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Hello,

Does anyone know which four fonts are used in this old ad?

Thanks in advance...

Its from an old German Type Catalog. Also, any ideas of other fonts that use the same style as the "n"s?

Four faces are offered-regular bold and black weights as well as a condensed form. All faces include a range of Opentype features, including ligatures and old-style numerals. The Corsham faces merge 'olde-worlde' charm with fun character, yet remaining clear and legible for text use.
