vintage

Greater Albion have jusst released two new families through Fontspring and Myfonts:

Corsham:
Corsham was inspired by traditional stonemason's engraved lettering designs. Designed to be used alone, or in combination with our Corton family, ithas wonderfully lively air, with distinctive lively serifs and beautifully swashed downstrokes. 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.

WPA Poster Font

Hi there,

I'm doing some work for a client on WPA-esque style posters. He's provided me with Duarte for some of the other areas of the poster, but I need to find the font I've attached here as it has been used on previous posters and the client doesn't have it. I ran it through whatthefont but to no avail.

Any ideas guys? Help much appreciated.

Thanks.

Yamaha stereo font.

I am looking to confirm which face is used for the instructional text on the Yamaha CD-X1. My type identification skills are sorely lacking, but I am hoping someone is up to the challenge.

Thanks for your time and help.

Leibix, inspired by a jolly trademark of the past, is a fun family of five typefaces which transcends different eras of the past. It has elements of the 1920s in its design, but is equally at home with projects having a 1970s theme of an up to the minute modern one. Leibix is intended for eye catching cartoon captions, in posters of anywhere else a casual impact is required.

Greater Albion is offering Leibix at an introductory 40% discount on Myfonts.

Hi,
I'm looking for help identifying the fonts used in this logo - or recommendations for similar fonts available. It was featured recently at CommArts.

Thank you!

can someone please help me figure out a font that is close to the style of "almanac" in the image above?

thank you!

Greater Albion Typefounders have just released tow new Typefaces on Fontspring and Myfonts:

Bertolessi, is a Roman face made fun, with a healthy dose of filigree curves thrown into the mix. It's an ideal compliment to our extensive Bertoni family, but can be used anywhere a bit of humour and flair is required.

Hi all,

Just signed up to ask if anyone knows of a font that resembles the one used for the words "original oxford marmalade" in the pic. I assume the lettering is a unique design for the brand, but it's a pretty common style (or at least was back in the day!) so there must be something similar out there. Doesn't necessarily need the shadowing, more interested in the letter shape etc.

Thanks!

I've got a crush on this font and I'd like to put it in a jar on my mantel but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Thought I saw a similar font on dafont.com but now it's no where to be found.

Thanks in advance

Hello all,

I'm in need of links, photos, or anything you've got relating to Futura as seen in vintage printed materials (Bolded, Tracked out, and letter pressed, that sort of look)

thanks!

My first font Calzone

This is a font ive been working, is inspired by the amazing "Mostra" from Mark Simonson. I wanted a font with a old feel to use on my vintage artworks and graphics, it started as a vector file that i use, but them i keep adding more characters and turned it into a real font. I would like to know the opinion of the people here about this font. Thanks.

Chop Shop Font ID

Hello.

Does anyone know what the 'chop shop' or 'Free Beer' font is?



Ive been really inspired by vintage style boxing posters.

ive been using the Knockout, Trade Gothic, Univers for a while and am looking for other ideas:
tall, condensed, clean typefaces.

also... think credits listed at the bottom of old movie posters (tall, condensed)

any ideas / inspiration?
thanks

from Michael Adkins...

Just wondering if I could get some feedback on this new font. First: this font isn't trying to take itself too serious. It is a condensed tribute to the classic 1940s Captain America covers. Second: It fits in fine when bold, fill-up-the-space lettering is called for, and it works great for signage when you're trying to cram everything into a tight space (DOT numbers and GVW's come to mind.) In all other venues, its usability remains to be seen.

Really, it's a work of passion, so the question of overall functionality also remains to be seen. Still, people are downloading the freebie at a hot pace, so there may be life for it beyond the funny books and sign shops. Thoughts?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I've been trying to find out what font this is… no luck so far. I feel like it must be so obvious I'm overlooking it.

Thanks in advance!

I keep coming across these flourishes but can't seem to find where they originated. I assumed they were Dover clip art since they have a vintage or antique look, but cannot find them in any of their ornament books. Perhaps these flourishes are a font... Does anyone know where these specific ornaments are from?

I am doing a project and im looking to see if anyone has a very close/exact match to these fonts. Thanks in advance!

ID Request

Can anyone help identify this font?

I found this old weather station at an estate sale, and I'd love to recreate it as a design exercise.

However, on the type, I have *no* idea where to start?

Is there anyone that can help out with all the fonts on here? Or a good place to look?

Thank you!

Here's the best image I have of it: http://drp.ly/aOwW

Help with these Fonts

Hi,

I have been having some difficulty trying to identify these two fonts that I saw on two different Design Studio´s websites. Can anyone please help me ID them? Also if possible, maybe you can recommend some fonts that fit into this style Serif fonts. Images are attached.

Thank-you in advanced

I'm trying to identify the "typed" font used on this form. It's an assembly line "build sheet" used by Ford back in the sixties. Several of these forms accompanied each car (in this case a 1963 Thunderbird), and the assembly line workers used them to identify which options to install as the car moved down the line. I've been unable to find it after hours of searching - any help would be much appreciated!

A bit of a tricky one, a script typeface taken from a vintage copy of vogue.

Its most likely that it is hand drawn type created in-house, but does anybody have any idea what this script typeface is / know of any around that have similar properties?

Forgive the mostly poor quality of the image.

Thanks
