Alcalá is based on the document “Biblia poliglota complutense”, aka Bible polyglotte d'Alcalá.
It was the first edition of a complete polyglot Bible, as well as the first printed version of New Testament in Greek, the Seventy and Targoum Onkelos. Conceived between 1502 and 1517, it was thought, financed and largely by cardinal Francisco Gimenez de Cisneros.
The first drawings go back to 1995. A second version was started in 2011 in order to answer the ordering of a publisher to compose a Bible based on the translation revised of J. N. Darby in French and Madagascan. Drawings are optimized for uses in small sizes.

The two-days symposium will take place this year at the University of Arts in Poznań (Poland) on 18–19 June 2011. The theme of our conferences is type and typography. That is not going to change any time soon. This year we aim to accentuate the social aspect of the symposium. In the end, the word symposium refers to drinking party or convivial discussions held in ancient Greece. The two days will include exhibitions, an evening full of short type presentations (aka TypeShorts), party, and of course a day full of excellent lectures.

It’s easy to find sans serif typefaces with multiple widths and weights, but large serif families are much less common. The 30-font FF More fills this void. Five weights in each of Condensed, Regular, and Wide widths answer every need of publication design, from strong headlines to readable text and space-efficient information graphics. FF More’s sturdy serifs and gentle contrast withstand the rigors of magazine and newspaper design — retaining clarity despite size, background, or substrate.
I am new here and hope that I am posting in the correct place.
I was wondering if anyone knows of any musical representations of typefaces? For example, has some composed music representing the flow of a specific font etc?
Any info appreciated!

I am working on a project that requires some 1950s/60s typefaces (or something that looks very similar). The project relates to jazz music of the era so any retro and/or jazzy typeface recommendations are welcome.
I have this image with some type I'd like to imitate. Especially the "Sound Magic" in the third row. Can anyone id any of these faces?
Hi type brains, I found this typeface at an exhibition and am not sure what it is? Take a look, I really like the lower case 'g'
I’m working on polishing a logotype for a client and could use your help pointing out any areas to clean up. I’m rather new at modifying type. The original face is Fling.
Also, I’m looking for the right serif to use for body copy with this, hopefully something that’s classy and modern but maybe with some feminine character. Hopefully with a nice small cap variation.
Thanks for your help!
Hey there Typophiles!
I've been interested in type for some years now but never really tried myself at this discipline.
I recently started thinking about a simple sans-serif font, based on my natural way of drawing letters. So I opened a Tumblr to document my creation process and share some studies on well known sans-serif fonts (mainly Helvetica, Futura and Century Gothic). What you'll find now is pictures of some of my very first drafts and visual studies of those fonts (comparing sizes, angles and so on, trying to understand their logic). And hopefully you'll find in some weeks/months/years a final OTF file for you to download.
Here's the site!
Hello, can anybody help with identifying the 'font' used in this logo? I'm redrawing it for a client as part of a refresh/rebrand but I'd like to figure out what the starting point is.
It seems to be pretty Garamond-esque but there are a couple of things throwing it out... Most notably the 'K' and perhaps the 'R'.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me :)
