Altered Ego Fonts announces the release of AE Prosperity, the first original script typeface released by Altered Ego®.

The schooner Prosperity was captained by Joseph Sooy, an ancestor of Brian Sooy, the principal designer of Altered Ego Fonts.

I was wondering if anyone might be able to take a crack at identifying this font. I'm interested in using it for a tattoo.
I'm also open to similar styles if what you have in mind looks kind of like the above images but isn't quite right. I'm kind of partial to Indelible Victorian Regular (http://www.fonts.com/FindFonts/detail.htm?productid=275783) as well, if it weren't quite so hard to read!
Thanks for any help! I've been scouring the internet trying to figure this out but I'm pretty new to typography.
I am a freelance design and lifestyle writer (charlotterivers.blogspot.com)... I am currently a new book about calligraphy and am looking for submissions from around the world....

Normally i dont second guess other "designers" but there are many things that make me question this person hand drew this typeface.
So im looking for anyone who might have seen it before, specifically the lower case glyphs since the uppers are easily modified for variation(unless you are a complete newb).
i've search DaFont and MyFonts already.
Hello everyone, I just want to share a new release Piel Script.
After several years of receiving tattoo requests and images of them using my fonts, I decided to design and publish a tattoo-style typeface. You can see the specimen here. I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed designing it.
Mynaruse Royale is an expansion of Mynaruse Titling. It features script capitals and widely tracked and smaller titling capitals. Mynaruse Royale has plenty of character and, with its powerful and sharp serifs that draw the eye. Mynaruse Royale is useful in settings that call for titling with an extra touch of elegance, such as a storefront, wedding program or formal invitation.
Mynaruse Royale contains a number of OpenType alternates, including alternate forms for the capitals that are large, drop cap like capitals instead of the calligraphic script capitals found in the default forms. Additionally there are non widely tracked lowercase forms that work well with the included alternate characters and ligatures.
This is the ongoing project for an office that works on the promotion of cultural events in Brazil. I am working alone so, it would be very nice if you guys could help with some words. Thanks a lot.
Does anyone know the name of the font in the attached pic?
Thanks for help!
My hip collegian daughter is always pushing me to make fonts which she thinks will fit the design trends of the day, which seems to come down to fonts which would look good in the monogram on the side of the Adams Family’s hearse, on an Ed Hardy t-shirt or tattooed on the back of a contestant on Tool Academy. Ok, that’s the extent of my second-hand contemporary cultural literacy.
Does anyone know the name of the "Might and Magic" (I - VI) Logo-Font? (see attached image)
Thanks for help!
I have stumbled upon this website of rare calligraphy books all available for view online and .pdf download. There is some pretty amazing books on there.

I know I have seen this before a few times so I know it must be out there somewhere...can anyone tell me where I can buy it or even better if it is free : )
I'm very pleased to say that I have produced a new art print.
The print is called 'Blazing' and is available exclusively from Pictures on Walls.
POW is a big gallery selling the work of some extremely talented and established artists including Banksy and Antony Micallef, so I think it's a very positive development.
It's an ambigram, which means you can read it both ways up. Details here:

Two more workshops are being offered at Cooper Union this spring in lettering: "Organic Capitals" April 17 & 18 and "Compressed Styles (Black letter)" May 1 & 2. To see complete workshop details www.cooper.edu/ce
These workshops are appropriate for people who have some background in lettering or calligraphy and are already
comfortable using a broad edged pen. Absolute beginners will struggle but if you're up for the challenge Julian is an excellent teacher to begin with.
Can someone please ID this typestyle. WTF would not work on it due to severe dithering
i would like to know more details about the typographer rudolph koch's ties with the jewish community and his designs made for the jews, like the offenbacher haggadah.
also, for hebrew readers, i wrote an essay about koch's work in my hebrew blog:
Hello, this is my first active participation in typophile.
I'm looking for a clear distinction between calligraphy and lettering for a scholarly work.
Someone can collaborate?
