Italic Display advice

qualitycontrol's picture


I am involved in a project in which I have the need for an oblique UC display font. I am looking for a display font that is fairly dark and is a true slanted roman (no decoration on the J or Y which I seem to see in many UC Italic fonts.)

I am also looking for a font with a particular style of "A"--I am not sure if these have a name, but an "A" wherein the right-hand stroke is angled like the stem of a B, F, L etc.

The closest I have come so far would be Font Bureau's Farnham Display. Attached is its italic UC. My only complaints with it are its J and Y and that I am looking for something that has smoother serif bracketing, but not a didone.

I feel like this should be fairly easy to find but for some reason can't dig anything up. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

try looking for some Fleischman revivals, thats what Farnham is, I believe.
Also, Farnham Text Italic has normal looking J's and Y's, although the A is less dramatic.
