calligraphy

John Baskerville was first a calligrapher in his youth
and then became a rich merchant.
Baskerville stated that his own romans were influenced by calligraphy.
How do you spot the calligraphic leaning in the letters of the Baskerville Roman?
I'd like to know your personal view.

This is a tribute to my childhood movie Fanfan La Tulipe with Gérard Philipe and Gina Lollobrigida released in 1952.

I am wondering what this tool is called? The wooden-handled thing with a metal tip the shape of half a heart. Please help! Thanks all!

Bengala is a trendy new type system. The family is made up of a script style, an extended all-caps style, and an ornament set that includes the animal illustrations shown here.






Hello guys.
I need to find this font, please help.

I only have a sample in Greek though: http://i781.photobucket.com/albums/yy95/f1spa/Miscellaneous/01_zps8f913e...

The image says Image Dental. I cropped out the other fonts.
The "I" is cropped out, so this is just the letters "MAGE".

Any thoughts on what this font is? I seen it before but cannot find it again.

Thanks for your help!

I'm looking for high-resolution scans from pages of Arrighi's La Operina, which is a classic manual for calligraphy and for the 'chancery italic' approach to pre-printing-press typography. I'm aware of an on line resource of "the" work, but the resolution is too low.

The work doesn't have to be authentic and I'll consider examples of modern interpretations. I have a copy of Three Classics of Italian Calligraphy but it doesn't show enough detail.

Any help appreciated.

Hello there

I'm designing a 3D letter, like Steingruber did with his alphabet.

But for the letter build, I would like to go in a calligraphed way.

I'm looking to identify both of the fonts used on these cards. One is a script, the other is Gothic. I realize that these might be hand calligraphy, but if anyone could point me to reasonable look-a-like fonts, I'd be thriled!

Thank you!!

Recreating graphics for the first time for a local pizza place that "can't remember" where they got their first logo. Can you guys help me out? I have no clue what this font is, the whole office is stumped.

Thanks in advance!

Does anyone know what this script font is? I've identified lots of similar fonts, but none that are a match. Any help would be extremely appreciated! :) Thanks so much!

Odd Script Font

Hi guys.

The font below is unfortunately the best version I've been able to get you guys...my client didn't have anything better.
I don't know what it might be. I've tried several and they don't match. It's part of a bigger corporate logo, so I don't want to be "close enough" either.

Thanks in advance,

Hello 2013, Bellissima Script is the first Sudtipos release of the year.

While in the same vein and spirit as Burgues and Compendium, Bellissima began from an entirely different thread as those fonts. It started with Alex Trochut generously showing me a gorgeous lettering book from his grandfather's library: Bellezas de la Caligrafía, by Ramón Stirling, 1844. Stirling was one of the Latin calligraphy pioneers who introduced a refined version of English calligraphy in Spain and made it popular in the nineteenth century.

Hello!

I am a Graphic Design student and I am making my 3rd attempt to write a thesis. By writing here, I consider myself desperate, because I cannot find a topic for my thesis. The only thing I clarified for myself is that I am interested in typography and calligraphy. And writing a thesis on these topics could help me to use what I've learned in my future projects.
Although I am reading everywhere in attempt to find something which would excite me, I am at a dead end.
So I am asking for your help.

I have in mind some questions, but I am wondering if they could evolve into a thesis argument:

1. Which are the limits of calligraphy?
2. What's the connection between typography/calligraphy and music?

Me & Martina Flor created this new project called www.letteringvscalligraphy.com
Is a battle between a letterer and a calligraphy.

Here there is a littlel press kit: https://www.dropbox.com/s/pj8ie3swhh3g2i7/PressKitLVSC.pdf

Hope you like it.
Have a nice day

This is treatment I did of 18th century Armenian calligraphic style. Its the first letter of Armenian Alphabet - AIB (alpha, alef).

Dear Admin, I would also propose to create a Armenian Letters sub-forum in Special Interest Groups. I am sure that there are quite many Armenian font designers who are here and would join. Hrant Papazian is at least one of them I know :)

These archaic signs are from Syunik province and Geghama Mountain range in Armenia. Some of them are over 5000 years old.

In one of my college lessons, its states that typography refers to mechanically-reproduced letters while calligraphy refers to hand-rendered letters. I wondered if this is technically correct, despite the general use of the word "typography" to refer to the study and use of letterforms?

Please help me in identifying the script font on this packaging. Thank you!!

Please help me find out what both of these fonts are! I've searched thousands of fonts and cannot find them. Thank you!
