I’m looking for a font to pair with Goudy Old Style. I’m using GOS for the body text of a fantasy novel that takes place in ancient times, and I initially thought I might use Goudy Trajan (with swashes perhaps) for the chapter headers.
However, I thought that Trajan would be cliched, and I’m leaning toward using Goudy’s Forum Titling instead for a fresher use of ‘ancient Rome’ fonts. The Lanston Type Company suggests 'hybridizing' GOS lowercases with Forum Titling's capitals, but I wondered if it might work if I used them as-is. I’m open to other options to pair with GOS, of course, just so long as the font evokes that ancient feel.
There is one caveat – I may need the font to be available for ebook licensing.
Just wanted to share this link on type design.
Hello! I have come here to hopefully obtain the information I'm seeking. I outlined a font I used for a logo in my design class before writing down the font name. The font is no where to be found in my downloads or computer so I'm at a loss here. I've searched the sites I used for this font and simply cannot find it. Could someone please tell me if they know what this font is? I have only included the bit at the beginning because the O is one of the hallmarks of the font. Thank you!
Hey i am doing a Research project on City Typography!
Could you please fill this up for me.
Hey! I am doing this research project based on "City Typography"
Objective: To study the vernacular feel of the city and then draw a comparison on the basis of the type having certain nuances that were characteristic of the city they are symbolic of.
So basically i am trying to show like how city's elements like Culture, Cusine, Lifestyle, Architecture, Language, Fashion and Traditions, have some connection to its visual culture it showcases.
So for this i visited Cologne and Paris and collected visual reference for the same.
But before analyzing it further i would want to know more about the visual culture or type culture of these two cities. As in how it has changed? How it has evolved overtime? The visual history of these two places.
