F//W: Three beautiful typefaces

Hi fellow typophiles!

Please Help!

I've scoped the breadth of many type-foundry collections and many individual designers projects to try and work out whether these fonts are custom-made or actually a family…

Big thank you in advance,

F//W

2)

3)

No idea on the first two, but 3) appears to be ITC Century Light Italic.

Wonderful Mark!

Thank you so much for your prompt reply!
That's one down and two to go!

By the way, I think it's likely that the first two are not off-the-shelf fonts, but some sort of custom work or customized fonts.

That is what we have come to think also…

However the sources we got these images from led us to believe that both these typefaces belongs to a family!

Maybe someone else can enlighten us to the nature of these letters?
Perhaps they have been tailored from another typeface?

The "R's" in sample (2) seem to identify the font as Tiffany Medium Italic, but the serifs and junctions are obviously modified ...

Design means: thinking comes first.

RE: Formsclub

Thanks so much for your response:
Pretty much on par with Tiffany Medium Italic
Even the beginning arm in the counter looks like its just been reversed & tweaked a little! However, can anyone recommend another typeface similar to Tiffany where the serifs are like the ones in sample(2)?

Thanks

I'd say look again at ITC Century Light Italic -- anything but the "R" is pretty much the same.

Thanks for all your help!
Will put Century to good use.
