"You need to rebrand immediately.
Fountain, the funny type foundry."

maybe it's just time to change my profession ;)

Is is a Storm font again?

beejay's picture

No, not a Storm font, but the font is
viewable and downloadable on the internet.


the hint is author.

What author has been in the (type)
news recently...Does that author have
any type creations...do you, in fact, have
this creation sitting a few mouse clicks away,
tucked away in a folder you haven't opened
this century?

I think so. Strong possibility.

Author=Stepen Moye?
And teh font used in that book - Italian Old Style Italic by F. Goudy, altered by Richard Beatty?

beejay's picture

Moye is correct. But wrong font.
When you buy Fontographer, you also
get a bunch of .fog files, including a handful of fonts
digitized by Stephen Moye. One of them is Goudy One Hundred.
Another one is the typeface in question.

It was released as a "public domain" font so it has ended
up in some free font archives.

Check your fogs or moorstation. It can be googled
with the right keywords.

Sauna Black Italic?

peterbruhn's picture

No...italic and black/bold is right though.

{Do not panic - this is only a momentary delurk in the Type ID section.}

A quick correction of sorts concerning the LA Times stuff from last week:
The new body and headline fonts are indeed by FontBureau, but the really spiffy large section heads (the ones BJ mentioned) are a remake by Carter of his custom work for the Victoria & Albert Museum, now named "Victoria".

As you were.

eomine's picture

No ideas... is that an "a"?

The letter "a"

A clue:

Maiandra to the list.

Nope, not Maiandra now that I look at it...

Nor is it any other cooper derivatives
