Has anyone seen this typeface before? It is scanned out of a history book about Francis Bannerman. It is a sample page from the Bannerman 1888 catalog.

Johns Hopkins typeface

Trying to figure out the serif typeface used in the "Johns Hopkins." Any ideas?

What do you think about DIN + Quadraat? or DIN + Warnock?
Do they work together?

Serif font with large X value

Hi, I'm looking for a serif or slab font with a large x value to use on a magazine cover. The text is just 2 letter: RH, and I would like it to form a rectangle standing on its smallest side. The magazine is a business publication, so there is a concern on it looking serious. Anyone have any suggestions?

My typeface knowledge is pretty thin, so please feel free to quote obvious choices. So far I've come up with things like Palatino, Weiss and Minion. But I' not sure I'm on the right track.

My first typeface attempt

I am graphic design student and have set my self the task of designing a typeface over the summer break.
I started off from some sketches but had no real goal other than to produce a typeface and learn how to use fontlab in the process.
Anyway I'd like to know what you think and would appreciate any guidance.

Hello! ,

I´m designing my first typography and I would like to listen to experts opinions because Im planning on presenting it on a type expo.

Thanks in advance , Looking forward to read you comments.



I work for author Kate Carlisle, and I'd like to identify the font that her publisher used on her book covers. In particular, I want to know the fonts used in the "A Bibliophile Mystery" tag and the title. Any ideas?

Need a hand with this one.

Thanks Typophilers!

Hello there fellow Typophiles,

I'm looking for advice on a typeface for the body text on a website I'm working on. The website is about wedding photography, so I'm thinking that an elegant (but legible) roman typeface would fit nicely. Though I would really like to use true small caps, something I'm having trouble finding in a web font. Question: Do you know any free or affordable web fonts with true small caps? (that fit my requirements)

I've been looking at Typekit and Typotheque and the best I could come up with is Greta Text or maybe Brioni Text.

Any other recommendations?

Could someone help ID this? It is a picture of a name stamp out of an old textbook. Sorry for the poor quality. Notice the center vertex of the 'M' above baseline, straight comma, and circular period. Thanks for the help!

Although so familiar, it's one of those that I can't put a finger on—the italic that Ken Leung used in his proposed redesign of the Vanity Fair wordmark.


I've tried all the online font identifiers, but they keep returning bad results. Can anyone help?


Can anyone ID the font used for "The Holt Family" in the attached image?

Can anyone ID these two fonts being used in AT&T advertisements? Are they custom? And if so, any idea as to the foundry?

I'm trying to find the name of this font. There is a normal, solid version of the same, but I'd really like the inline version best.

Hi all,

Could anyone identify this typeface (see attachment) for me, any help would be much appreciated.



I'm currently designing a photography magazine geared towards women. I'm trying to finalize the typeface I'll use for the body copy and I'm looking for some advice before I commit to anything. Right now I have the copy set in Cochin 8.5pt. I'm set on using a serif and I love the look of this, but I'm a little concerned with the readability. I'm not averse to spending some money on a quality font that can be used throughout the magazine, I like the look of Mercury and even Sentinel (H&FJ), but wanted to get some opinions before I purchase anything.

As always, thanks for the help!

I'm working on the logo & wordmark for a company that will be based online (it's a music service) and aimed at Churches, primarily older and smaller high-churches, like Presbyterian, Episcopalian, Lutheran, etc.

Currently I'm using Proxima Nova or Gotham in the mockups (anyone want to weigh in on why I should pick one over the other?), set in all-caps, but I'd like to see something that looks a tiny bit more traditional. I'm thinking some slight serifs or something. Normally I'd try to solve this with a slab serif like Adele or PMN Caecilia, but it ends up looking too tough, and most serifs just look too boring to be used for an online music service.

Does anyone have any idea what this font is? I made the graphic right before my hard disk crashed, so I do know that it is a font, I just don't know which one. Any ideas?
