slab serif

My new typeface, "Columbia Titling", is now on sale at MyFonts and for a limited time is just $8 for four weights!

Columbia Titling is an titling-caps display family based on wide Clarendon-style wood type and industrial signage design from the late-19th and early-20th Century. It includes a small set of OpenType features, including both tabular and proportional figures, special superscript ordinal suffixes, underlined superscript alternate letters, and OpenType fractions. The typeface takes its name from the historic S.S. Columbia, a steamboat launched in 1903. Though not a true reproduction, the wide, slab serif letterforms on the front of the Columbia's wheelhouse provided some inspiration for to develop this typeface. Enjoy!

The Clarendon-like face here is impossible to find. Can anyone help?

I know this is an easy id for some, but I am admittedly not so good at getting the exact typeface.

Hello! Can anyone help with this typeface? It's from a 1968 Viceroy cigarette ad. It's not Clarendon, Glouchester or Cheltenham. I'm not coming up with anything better at Identifont or Whatthefont. Thanks in advance for any help! I really appreciate it.

Hello Everyone!

I was wondering if anyone had any insights to what this custom logo wordmark was derived from? Any closest matches?
Thanks so much for the help!

Hello

I am after a bit of type-sleuthing for this early (1917) example of what I guess is a wood type slab serif for PRAVDA. Kind of similar to this revival family http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/flat-it/dharma-slab/m-extra-bold/ but not quite, missing the rounded exit junctions before the slab-serifs...

Any clues?

thanks as ever for your time!

This is part of a logo I'm re-creating, I doubt it was modified, however, I can't find a V that has a serif on the left and not a full serif on the right, that goes to the right. I see some that go to the left.

Please excuse the choppiness on the sides of the v, this is where there were graphics ... the actual font is not distressed.

Thank you, I'm thinking this is something obvious and I'm looking too hard!

Thanks.

Any recommendations for a slab serif with a cyrillic character set? It would have to have an @font-face license. Looking for something in the neighborhood of Archer, Caecilia, Centro, Copse, Ernestine, Museo, Serifa. Centro may work, but looking for some other options. Thanks!

Funny looking slab

Hello,

Can anybody recognise this interesting looking serif? I'm sure I've seen it somewhere before, but I can't remember where...

Thanks a lot in advance!

Please help ID this font. It is very close to Caecilia, but extended.

Hey guys, found this on a Flickr group and can't seem to identify the typeface. Found a close match with Hellenic Wide, but the G isn't quite right. Any ideas?

Thoughts on my typeface? (slab serif)

Hey guys,

This is my second-ever type design project and I'd like to get some feedback on it. The attached pdf is a bit of a type specimen I was required to do for the project which hopefully shows most of what you would need to see to critique it. I obviously have a ton to learn but I'm loving type design thus-far.

It's meant to be a vertically accented strong geometric slab serif for display. The No7 represents a weight system I plan on implementing, with each font file in the family having a corresponding number value from 0-9.

I'm also now beginning research on how to get all the diacritical marks/alternate characters to actually work outside of the glyph window, so for the moment they don't work but hopefully will soon.

Slab ID

Anyone know what typeface is used in this logo?

Looking to id these two typefaces. I'm guessing the headline typeface is either Rockwell or Memphis.

Probably Memphis because Rockwell has a double-story 'a'

The body text - at first glance appears to be Trade Gothic.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

condensed slab serif

please help in identifying this condensed slab. thanks.thought it was rockwell but that's not as tall.

The Spargo family of six typefaces has just released on Myfonts.com and on Fontspring.

Spargo is inspired by 20s and 30s American typefaces, often seen on share certificates and other securities. We thought it was time to bring a touch of transatlantic boom and ebullience to our portfolio of typefaces, not to mention a healthy dose of Roaring 20s spirit. Spargo is the result, offered in six all capitals display typefaces.

Here are speciments of the six faces...

Sorry, very small reproduction.

Slab Serif Type ID

Hey guys, I was wondering if you could help identify this typeface for me. The tyepface I am having trouble identifying is the section that says "Let's Get Lit".

Thanks, guy!

Hello,

I'm studying graphic design in Finland and am quite new to the world of typography. I have been reading this forum for a some time now, and the time has come to ask for your assistance with a font from a logotype.

I tried identifying the font at WhatTheFont, without luck. I think it has some similarities with bold and semibold cuts of Stone Serif, Cambria, Georgia and some Garamonds. Having read my Bringhurst, I think it has some baroque (drop terminal ‘a’, moderate aperture, axis) but it looks modern to me. The serifs (or stem) on ‘n’ and variable terminals should make it easier to identify. I am quite sure it's something really obvious, I just don't see it.

Thanks,
Riku

I'm redrawing some art that one of our customers lost. The image is from a scanned sample of the original art, but I can't figure out what font this is at all. I'm pretty sure the art was done a LONG time ago, if that helps narrow it down at all. Thanks in advance!
