slab serif


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.


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!

Hi! I've been searching for about an hour to find this typeface, and with no luck. It comes very close to typefaces like Adelle, but not quite right. The serif on the C, G, and S are circular instead of slabbed, which throws the trail off. The best example of it that I found is off of the Awesome Blackpool Web Design site. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance :]

Skinny Wide Slab

I've been seeing this around and would like to finally know what it's called. What the Font came up with a couple close ones, but no exact matches I don't think.


(sorry for the small sample)

Here are samples of Greater Albion Typefounders' latest two releases, which have just launched on and

Paragon is a display Roman family of nine faces, combining elements of formality and fun. It embodies a high degree of contrast between near hairline horizontal strokes and bold vertical strokes. The family is offered in three widths and in regular, small capitals and title faces. Use Paragon to lend impact to your next design project.

Nice slab serif

I love this slab serif. Can anyone ID it?

looks like a split-wood, splintery version of something like Playbill or PT Barnum

FF Suhmo
FF Suhmo is inspired by classic Egyptian and typewriter fonts such as Courier and American Typewriter, which feature headline and text use. This impressive duality was a guideline for the concept of Alex Rütten.

Can anyone identify this one? It's a slab serif with a single story a. Looks a lot like Rockwell except for a few things. The only sample I have is this lo-res business card scan :\

Hi there,

I realise this is probably an easy one for some but I'd love some help I.D'ing the attached font.

It can also be viewed at


First post here. Looks like a great community. I came across this awesome slab serif and fell in love with the 'S'. I searched through 29 pages of MyFont slab serif faces & didn't see one like this. It's quite possible that I missed it.

Can anyone ID this type?

Slab serif


Does anyone know this slab?


Can anyone help ID this slab serif? It is similar to Vigor DT Black, but not quite the same. Any ideas?

It's from James Goggin's entry in 'Fifty Designers Current Favourite Typefaces' - Any ideas?

Hi everyone,

I'm a newbie to this forum. Can anyone help me identify the open, slab serif extended face used in these initials and numerals?

Thanks so much.


I'm trying to identify a font with a slab serif.

I've looked at ITC Lubalin Graph, Rockwell, Karnak Pro and Museo. I thought I was very close with Museo but the uppercase A has a serif at the top that points to the right and the lowercase "a" is shaped differently. I also checked the alternate characters on these fonts and there are not characters that match this font.

Any thoughts on what the name of this font is?

Thank you,

Dear slab-serif loving peoples of Typophile: What are your favorite slabs? Obscure or traditional; which ones out there do you use, or feel are unique?

Hello- I need to use this font for a project, could anyone tell me what it is?

I wanted to post this for feedback before starting on the numerals and (possibly) a lowercase alphabet. It was somewhat difficult to balance a) blackness, b) extendedness, and c) a reversed stress, and some letterforms that might otherwise have shared a quasi-analogous construction, such as the X and Y, here do not.

I'm going for a more fun, ultra-black vibe than anything mannered or historically reverent.

Wondering what the slab serif face that is used for the word "money"


Can anyone identify this font. I am wanting to use it for a project but am striking out trying to find a match.
