Italic

I would like to know where certain Roman and Cyrillic glyph variants come from.

In American cursive handwriting (Roman letters, naturally):
• the "f" looks more like a print "b" than a print "f";
• the "s" does not resemble any print letter at all;
• and the "r" looks like some kind of weird mutant print "n".

In Russian cursive (Cyrillic letters):
• the "г" looks like a backward print Roman "s";
• the "д" looks for all the world like a cursive Roman "g";
• and the "т" looks like nothing so much as a cursive roman "m"!

(The cursive forms for "г" and "т" are also used in italic.)

As for "r" and "г", I wonder if the same principle is at work for both.

I have seen some of the Russian "cursive" letterforms in print, in the credits for some episodes of "Nu, pogodi!"

I need some help to identify this font
I've tried with some pages but i can't find this font

Please help me!

Thank you! :)

This looks fairly close to Adobe Caslon…but not quite. Anyone know what this is?

Hello I need one last font identification,
Its very similar its a italic serif, very similar to something in the Bodoni family but with much thinner lines. Any guesses?
Thanks again for you assistance and consideration!

Does anyone know which serif this is?

Many thanks,

Does anyone know what the secondary font used in the Godiva logo is? The word "Godiva" seems to be Optima, but that is used for "Chocolatier"? Thanks!

Small chance it's a custom logotype, but I'm doubting it.

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.

Does anyone know what wedge-serif font is the one used where it is written "PODER NERD"?

And the one which reads "Guia Tech", although it's very small to read it in this photo, I know. (some "high-tech italic squarish and awkward font")

Thank you so much!

Greater Albion Typefounders has just launched the Doncaster family on Myfonts and Fontspring.

Doncaster is a bold display face which emphasises legibility and clarity, but which combines those qualities with a distinctive flair. The designs have a timeless quality, making them equally at home today or even in Victorian inspired design work. All of the faces are ideal for poster work, signage or for really eye-catching but not ostentatious headings and titles. Seven faces are offered combining upper and lower case forms with incised and embossed decoration as well as an italic form.

Here is a specimen sheet showing all seven faces:

This typeface looks very familiar, but I don't know what it is. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Could be custom but repeated letters look very similar:

Hello everybody,

why are letter pairs like ›gy‹ and more often ›gf‹ in so many otherwise nice italic fonts so badly kerned? For example:

Williams Caslon Text Italic OT

One of the rare exceptions:

Iowan Old Style BT Pro Italic

I’ve chosen the two examples, just because I like both typefaces very much.

Some explanations for that fact?

Thank you and kind regards

Hello,

Does anybody know which typeface they might have used for this exhibition at Prado Museum in Madrid? I was thinking maybe some kind of Garamond, but I'm not sure.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Have been having trouble trying to identify this font. If you can help it would be greatly appreciated. I guess it is retro and italic.

Hello there,

Does anybody know where I can find these kind of fonts like used in the letters of the image I am attaching below?

They are mostly used in old circus brochures, theater, books & tales... If you know what I am talking about. Have a look :)

Thank you!

Hi, I could do with some help on id'ing this one please. Maybe the 'R' has been customized but if someone could help me out with the base font it would be much appreciated

Many thanks in advance

Greater Albion have just released two new families on Myfonts and Fontspring.

Portello is a display family in the tradition of Tuscan advertising and display faces. It's a family of three 'all capital' faces. A perpendicular regular form is offered, along with an italic form (a true italic - with purpose designed glyphs-NOT merely an oblique) and a basic form for small text - which dispenses with the family’s characteristic outlined look. It offers the spirit of the Victorian era with ready and distinctive legibility. It's ideal for poster work, especially at large sizes, and for signage with a period flair.

Any idea what this font is called?

Anyone know what font BODYMASTERS is? Thanks!

I'm proud to announce the release of Pyes Pa. A high contrast display italic.

Lovely italic

Does anyone what beautiful font this is? Can't tell if its just one or 2.
Thanks!

I'm trying to identify a font used in the body text of Les Misérables I by Victor Hugo, from a "folio classique", Edition d'Yves Gohin, ISBN 2-07-040922-8, copyrighted 1973 and 1995.

The most unique thing about this font is the italic "f", which has a slightly curved, almost straight edge on the bottom. This characteristic alone eliminates most famous serif fonts, I think. Also, the italic "b", ""d", "l" letters begin from the top with a curved, tapered hook. The italic "z" resembles the Times, as well as the italic "v".

Hello everyone.
I hope you can help me ID this typeface, it's for a French company called Traqueur that specializes in vehicle after-theft recovery and fleet management.

Hello! ,

I´m designing my first typography and I would like to listen to experts opinions because Im planning on presenting it on a type expo.

Thanks in advance , Looking forward to read you comments.

Cheers!

Diego
