    Here again, 'sluitijzer' is not the proper term, but 'kooi' is, the 'kooien' are being tightened with the 'kooisleutel'.

    We don't call them 'patrijs' in Dutch, but 'stempel' and the person who cuts the punches, is called a 'stempelsnijder'.

    Petite caps

    'Kleinkapitalen' in Dutch

    Actually, 'wit' would be better here, 'gerief' indicates spaces from 6 point up. The 'geriefkast' is a typecase holding spaces and quads from 6 to 36 point. In Germany you've got 'Leiste' to hold those spaces.

    Composing rule

    'Zetlijnen' in Dutch

  8. Wow, thanks for the info and leads guys!

    answered What adobe font is this? (balans tcm)

    That was my conclusion as well, tx for the input.

    answered German foundry font

    Thanks Ralf. Do you happen to know the time in which it was released? ::edit:: Never mind; I found the information on it. Designed by Albert Christoph Auspurg b. Frankfurt am Main, 1868, d. Leipzig, 1943. Ludwig&Mayer: Aristokrat (1912),

    Serif [anatomy]

    I’d say no, because I don’t think descending in the rabbit hole of serifs classification would be especially useful here.

    Same problem for slab-serif?

    Serif [classification]

    Serif is a font classification category, which includes fonts having serifs (i.e. small strokes regularly attached to the end of a larger strokes).

    Aristokrat, which was available from D. Stempel and Ludwig & Mayer.

    Long shot on ID for this eBay item. A very nice looking font of likely German foundry origin, and probably pre-1900. Any helpful information will be very much appreciated.

    I agree. Especially that not all languages use nouns as adjectives and vice versa.

    Czech term is "patka"
  20. “We are proud to announce the 2nd edition of our Type@Paris scholarship. You must identify as female and live outside the US, Canada, or EU to apply for a chance to attend Type@Paris 2020 tuition free.”
  21. The "Secret Organization" text appears to be Mattox Shuler's "Gin". The elongated capitals in "Introduction by Neil Patrick Harris" appear to be Shuler's "Bourbon" but his have no swash elements. One of the "The" catchwords is letter Q in HWT Catchwords
  22. And the very last. I think the multiple The's are derived from a collection. Certainly half of LHF's 62 The's was used throughout the book. The typewriter small e has a very distinct black dot in its eye.
  23. Of the handful of unidentified fonts remaining, here they are (apologies for photo quality) and the closest-related-but-bummer-not-the-same fonts I can find: FF-Erikrighthand https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/fontfont/ff-erikrighthand/ot-regular/?meta=/237005/The+following+items+were+disco/FF+Erikrighthand+Std+Regular/ Forthland 01 https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/Uncurve/forthland/regular-01/?meta=/354913/An+Incomplete+History+of+Secre/Forthland+01/ Soap Box: https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/coffee-bin-fonts/soap-box/shaded/?meta=/137750/THE+FIRE+PALTRYVILLE/Soap+Box+Shaded/ Arno Pro SmText Bold Italic https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/adobe/arno/bold-italic-sm-text/?meta=/152973/PRUFROCK+MONTGOMERY+LACHRYMOSE/Arno+Pro+SmText+Bold+Italic/ ITC Berkeley Old Style Std Black Italic https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/itc/berkeley-oldstyle/std-black-italic/?meta=/215544/PRUFROCK+MONTGOMERY+LACHRYMOSE/ITC+Berkeley+Old+Style+Std+Black+Italic/ I think this is Henriette (which is definitely used as the main body font) but with a stroke effect applied: https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/typejockeys/henriette/heavy/?meta=/224605/WARNING+THE+WRITERS/Henriette+Heavy/ This one is almost-almost-almost LHF Indian Script 2, but there are some tiny differences such as the angled capital M's feet.
  24. Here's the list of fonts firmly identified so far. If there was an award for a book with the most-number-of-fonts-but-didn't-feel-chaotic, I suspect this would win. The Crayonette appears to be DJR's revival. 62 The's by Chuck Davis & Patrick Kalange A2 Typewriter by A-2 Type Archive Antiqua Extra Cond by Archive Type Archive Autograph Script by Archive Type Archive Copperplate Text by Archive Type Archive Old Style Condensed by Archive Type Balboa Plus by Parkinson Balford by Ilham Herry Ballpark Script by Letterhead Fonts Banner Year NF by Nick’s Fonts Billhead by Letterhead Fonts Caniste by Ilham Herry Courier 10 Pitch by Bitstream Crayonette DJR by David Jonathan Ross Dead Zone by TypeArt Foundry Elixir by Mark Searfoss Emporium by Mark Searfoss Frontage Condensed by Juri Zaech Frontline by TypeArt Foundry Gf Script No 2 by Gigofonts Henriette by Typejockeys Horror Show by TypeArt Foundry Ivory by FaceType Jumbo by John Studden Old Tom by Tom Kennedy Robusto by Mark Searfoss Secret Admirer by Blue Vinyl Fonts Show by Huy!Fonts Sutro Deluxe by Parkinson Sutro Shaded by Parkinson Trolley by Mark Searfoss Whistler by Mark Searfoss
  25. The numbers can be seen on Phil's Fonts site. Another option that would need to be modified: download at MyFonts
  26. Seconding Riccardo’s conclusion that these are examples of lettering, not typefaces. For the second sample, The Fontry’s Excursions Alternate could be easily altered to match your sample (convert the glyphs to outlines in Illustrator or InDesign, and modify the Bezier curves). Unfortunately, The Fontry’s website is a bit difficult to navigate, but I believe you can purchase the typeface solo (not as part of a larger pack).

    Best fonts for academic papers/writing

    I suppose this list could be extended ad infinitum (or perhaps even ad nauseam), but these options (applicable especially in Linguistics work, or anything that stress-tests Latin Extended, Additional, etc. ranges) should be welcome additions here (and all “free” of one kind or another): Alegreya ht :: Huerta Tipográfica EB Garamond Linguistics Pro | which is based on Slimbach’s Utopia Vollkorn Typeface
