An Edwardian era font

I'm looking for a font from (or derived from) the Edwardian era - (Not the font, 'Edwardian' or Edwardian Script)
It must be...
Legible on HD res screen for relatively quick reading
Hint at Elegance and Romance without being overtly so
It could be either...
A font from that era
or...
A contemporary interpretation derived from signage or calligraphy of the era.
Any advice would be gratefully received,
Thanks
Alex

Have a look and let me know. Thanks!

Does anyone know the font name of the body copy of Gene Simmons/ Shannon Tweed's wedding invitation?

"Saturday, the first of October
Two thousand eleven
Half-past five in the evening
The Beverly Hills Hotel
9641 Sunset Boulevard, Beverly Hills, California"

Thank you so so much in advance!! :)

We’re pleased to announce the long-awaited release of Elena from type designer and Process Type Foundry partner Nicole Dotin. Designed specifically for text and extended reading, Elena is a contemporary text face well suited for magazines, books and editorial design. Pairing the inspiration of the broad-nibbed pen with a desire for a modern page color, Elena is a face of economical proportions, moderate x-height and spare details.

FontFont designers have been recipients of prestigious type design awards, but few can claim to have been even before their creations were officially published. Ludwig Übele’s FF Tundra — a recipient of a Certificate of Excellence in Type Design at this year’s TDC2 competition — is now available for licensing.

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

http://galeria.rlcpress.com.br/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_ite...

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!

Hi there guys, im new to the forum, this is my first post so excusem if i make a mistake.

Im developin an identity and im looking for a sleek, elegant serif font, i found one i like but can´t seem to figure out the type.
if you don´t know exactly but can propose something like it i will appreciate all proposals, im not married -yet- to anything, but i think this is a lovely one.

Thanks!

*note: could not insert image, so please see attached.

Even if its handwritten, what would be a font similar to the one used at the bottom?

It’s easy to find sans serif typefaces with multiple widths and weights, but large serif families are much less common. The 30-font FF More fills this void. Five weights in each of Condensed, Regular, and Wide widths answer every need of publication design, from strong headlines to readable text and space-efficient information graphics. FF More’s sturdy serifs and gentle contrast withstand the rigors of magazine and newspaper design — retaining clarity despite size, background, or substrate.

shocking ampersand?

Hello typophiles.
Do you find this ampersand shocking or OK?

< image below edited : version n°2 >

thanks a lot (again)

First spotted here in an article for Gemma O'Brien on LetterCult.
I don't know whether to describe this as a slab or transitional serif, either way I'd love to know what the name of the actual font is.

Any ideas?

Trying to ID the very condensed serif face with slab ends (not slab serifs - I'm not sure 'slab' is the correct term). The sample in the image is ALL the letters and numbers used in this face on the counters for this game: C, I, 1, 2, 3, 4. The 2 looks very distinctive, though. I tried Identifont, but it doesn't suggest anything with those slab ends to the 3 and top of the 2 - only Bodoni and relatives with ball-ends.

Not much to go on, but any help is appreciated!

Thanks
