gothic

Is the MR PORTER typeface Engravers Gothic, Bitstream?
I'm wondering what weight it is, and if it's Small Caps, All Caps, or lowercase.

I'm trying to identify the typeface used in this masthead. It looks like H&FJ's knockout, but the tail on the R has a different terminal.

Thanks!

I'm talking about Hunyad / Hunedoara Castle in Hundedoara, Romania. Information about the castle: in English; in German (more detailed).


Please visit this page for other photos of the place.

We're looking for appropriate typefaces to be used for display purposes in a branding project. "Appropriate" could mean inspired from that era / matches certain motifs from the buildings / etc.

Greater Albion Typefounders has just released it's latest family on Myfonts and Fontspring. Wolverhampton is a new Neo-Victorian face from Greater Albion Typefounders. It's something of an example of starting with a small idea and running with it. This family of three typefaces (Regular, Small Capitals and Capitals) was inspired by a line of lettering seen on a late 19th Century enamel advertisement made by Chromo of Wolverhampton (hence the family name). The family grew, topsy-like, from a recreation of these initial fifteen capital letterforms to the three complete typefaces offered here.

I saw this specimen of Gothic Light Face and I'd like try my hand at (re)constructing the lowercase, I'm aware that many of these early gothics didn't have a lowercase counterpart, however, looking at the [[http://www.utexas.edu/cofa/rrk/specimen.php?type=Gothic&sub=Lineal&specname[]=Gothic%20Light%20Face&specname[]=Gothic%20Special&specn

Hey everyone, I'm kinda at a last resort here. I've used font analysis survey to find font based on serif, non-serif, closed, open, fixed width, etc. I even emailed chevy themselves and all I got back was a "sorry, but we don't know, try googling it" response. I know I've seen fonts similar, especially w/the wider stroke on the left side of the letters, but couldn't find it in my library. Does anyone know the name of the font or even a direction to point me in. Any help with this is greatly appreciated, and I thank you all ahead of time for your time and consideration in helping me.

What is the attached font?

It's from the letterpress lab at the university of oregon. It is 15 pica sans serif. It is not labeled, and it bares no foundry stamp or company insignia. It is most likely older than 1965, and could be as old as 1900.

It only exists in caps, although there are a few varying figures. (two types of A's, etc.) I tried to pick the figures with a similar grain pattern, the thought being that they would be of the same shipment of type.

It is possible that this font has not been digitized, but any help you guys can offer would be amazing!

I thought this was DIN at first, but notice the parallel terminals on the S and the spur on the G.
It also doesn't seem to be Franklin or Trade Gothic.
I'm stumped. Can anyone solve this one?

Thanks!

This one is going on a business card for a distributor, anyone have a guess? No luck with WhatTheFont or IdentiFont. It's the lowercase 'm' that makes me think it's German somehow?

Need some help Identifying this font:

I'm looking for a web font that will closely match Trade Gothic, specifically the condensed, bold condensed, and bold no. 2 styles.

I know that Franklin Gothic is available as a web font, and Trade Gothic is also available as a web font from Monotype under a subscription, but any other recommendations from TypeKit, Webtype, etc. would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

Looking to id these two typefaces. I'm guessing the headline typeface is either Rockwell or Memphis.

Probably Memphis because Rockwell has a double-story 'a'

The body text - at first glance appears to be Trade Gothic.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Hello everyone,

I am looking for a good, legible in windows, body text serif companion (a web font and one free, not from a paid service for technical reasons) for League Gothic.

This is for a magazine-type website, I want a modern but austere look, with league gothic set in all caps for titles and meta and the actual content of the site in a serif.

One I thought of is Georgia, but I don't know if they combine well, what do you think? Actually i would prefer a less common choice, maybe Droid Serif? Is it a good choice to pair with League Gothic?

Any opinions and options is appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Looking to identify this type that's commonly used for headlines in NY Magazine. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello! I'm trying to find the typeface Jessica Hische uses for the navigational items on her site (Type, Design, Illustration, Back, More etc.) I'm being tripped up by the nice little flourishes in the K, R, etc. Is it possible that it's a custom typeface? Alternatives are also welcome, I really like the proportions that one has going on-- wide but compact, legible very small, etc. Thanks! http://www.jessicahische.com/

This was found on old University signage at the University of Minnesota. It looked hand painted so it may not be a specific font but perhaps it was based on one.

Does anyone know what the typeface is that Radiohead are using for their new album cover? It's a condensed gothic of some sort, but I can't pin it down.

I need some assistance.

Can you name this and better yet do you know where it can purchased as a font?

I appreciate the help.

Cheers...

I have not been able to find out why san serif fonts such as Franklin Gothic are called Gothic. Fraktura and similar blackletter typefaces are also called Gothic. Can anyone point me to a book/text/site, where this difference — or similarity in name — originated? Or, may I hear from an expert in the house?

Greater Albion Typefounders has just released the Spillsbury family on Myfonts.com.

Spillsbury was inspired by some examples of 1920s signwriting (principally seen on the side of some vintage vans-good thing they were in a photograph and not on the move!).

Spillsbury draws inspiration from these sources to provide a unique combination of legibility and flair, which echoes the charm of advertising and publicity material from the halcyon days of the 1920s.

A basic range of four display faces os offered - Regular, Plain (not all that plain really!), Shaded and Shadowed.

This is a concept I've had for a while, that I've only recently began to digitize. It started from the idea of an i, in which the principal stroke and the tittle form a diagonal slice. Here's my original freehand sketch:

I wanted to perhaps turn this idea into a legible gothic typeface with a high x-height, round, open letterforms, and ascenders/descenders/tittles with slanted, angular ends. Here it is digitized in Fontographer:

The lowercase letterforms:

At the moment, Thistle seems better suited for a display font (it could make an excellent logotype). It's surprisingly legible at smaller sizes (although much of the distinguishing slanted strokes and tittles become lost).

Would appreciate it if anyone could ID this: (Have tried What the Font, but sadly no luck.)
