  2. Why does Roboto look so thick on my page?

    It looks good to me on Firefox, Mac.
  3. Why does Roboto look so thick on my page?

    Wow, that is even worse! It is Roboto 400 though. What to do? Changing to 300 seems to be too fragile.
  4. Heading font for Leitura News body text

    Is the regular Leitura Sans not suitable for headings?
  5. Why does Roboto look so thick on my page?

    The type in your screenshot looks actually lighter than what I'm seeing on the live website with Firefox on Windows 7!  
  6. Why does Roboto look so thick on my page?

    Hey Ralf, I'm on chrome, Win 10, it's the same for body copy in general. Resolution or Monitor doesn't matter, always looks the same.
  7. Why does Roboto look so thick on my page?

    Can you post a screenshot from your browser of the specific section on the page you are talking about?
  8. Hey there, does anyone have any idea why Roboto looks so thick, almost medium/semi-bold like on my page, despite being regular? 300 looks to thin, 400 too fat. I'm kinda stuck in the middle. I do like the look of the font in combination with Rajdhani - tried about 20 others, nothing looked as good. Any ideas how to improve the look or alternatives? Example:   Thank you!
  9. Heading font for Leitura News body text

    Hi there I'm using Leitura News for body copy on my current project. I'm looking for a heading font that'd match well with Leitura News. The Leitura family has its own heading font, Leitura Headline, but I find it's too thick or dense. I'm looking for a sans-serif heading font. Have you got any suggestions? Thanks! Kind regards, Patrick

  14. The webfont service Fontdeck closes

    Apart from foundry-specific services like the one from Typotheque, I don’t think so.

  16. The webfont service Fontdeck closes

    I'm almost surprised they made it so far. There is any independent webfont hosting service out there now?

  19. ILT: Pure Gold

    Both the Roman Pliny (ca. 61–113) and the Greek historian, Herodotus (ca. 484–425 BC), mention gilding; the latter writing that the Egyptians gilded wood and metal. It has been used in decorating ceramics, in art, and at least from the fifth century in the production of illuminated manuscripts, reaching its peak in the especially exquisite illuminated Books of Hours produced from the thirteenth century. Although the term “illuminated manuscript” is often used to describe all decorated manuscripts, strictly speaking, it refers to those ornamented with gold and silver. The gold reflects light and therefore literally illuminates the page. From the late fifteenth century, printed illustrations (though still most often hand-colored) replace the illuminated manuscript.

  21. Gothic/Calligraphic Tech Font from Poster
  22. Hi there, Is anyone familiar with the calligraphic style font in the poster image? Any help much appreciated! The source for the poster was an Evian Christ gig in London. Best Henry I think I should be calling this a blackletter font...? :-)
  23. Small Typography for Print

    You could start with this list: Also, other than typefaces especially designed for small text, there are ones with optical sizes specific for different point size ranges.
  24. Small Typography for Print

    Hi People! I am working on a personal project: A World History Timeline. It will be for printing.  For this purpose, I am looking for fonts that are specially suited for good legibility in small sizes.  Serif, and Sans-Serif. They don't have to belong to the same family.  Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
