  2. Hallo I am trying to restore a very old bascule (wooden scale) It is almost finished but I'm missing the Supplier Nameplate I found a webpage (in dutch) with the tag https://www.zeeuwseankers.nl/verhaal/bascule The picture is not the best but I want to match the font as close as possible The G is a close match with the Swis721 But the r in "werktuigen" is not correct. Also the E in "VLISSINGEN" has an extended lower bar (It looks custom made?) When I have the correct font then my next task is to try lasering/milling it out of a plate of brass or copper. Thank you in advance.
  3. Trying to ID the fonts in this Cleveland Racquet sign. It appears to be retro, but I'm not sure.
  4. Only finding similar: Voppexa
  5. Agrandir Wide Medium All the type on your sample appears to be various weights of the same typeface.

    Google font 'Jost' bad render in chrome, misplaced accent. How to fix it?

    Thank you for compiling the lsit of contacts, I indeed wrote him a letters with all my findings and hope for the best. Infact when I used another version of the font from his site - old bug was fixed but introduced a new bug on a different character. 🙂 I bet all will get sorted out soon.
  7. Hey there, I've been having some trouble trying to identify the font written in black in this pamphlet. It's from an international association called Almada Mundo. In any case want to make it clear this isn't an ad or anything lol, the image is outdated.
  8. Have you tried simply asking the TikToker? Similar free font https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Orbitron

    Google font 'Jost' bad render in chrome, misplaced accent. How to fix it?

    😉 You can send a report directly from the Google Fonts page: https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Jost/about?query=jost Or contact the designer on his website or his Github page: https://indestructibletype.com/Contact.html Some designers fix their fonts within 24 hours. They just need to learn about the bugs.

    Google font 'Jost' bad render in chrome, misplaced accent. How to fix it?

    any advice @Ralf Herrmann?
  11. thanks for your reply! that means we need to assume, that the paths of the pen were handmade - so we are looking for the font the creator was inspired by, right? (it feels like thats rather the case then he designed a new font from scratch).
  12. I’m not able to find the name of the font, as it’s not listed on their site. I have tried a few font identifier searches, and they do not yield accurate results. Thank you for any help you can give.

    Top ten book body text fonts?

    Oh, and I remember reading Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz while staying at a hotel in Trondheim and spontaneously buying both Trump Medieval and Aquinas (the latter in all caps, for chapter titles) as a result. Such a pleasant reading experience.

    Top ten book body text fonts?

    I have soft spots for Kings Caslon, Minion and Hoefler Text. Adobe Garamond Premium and Adobe Jenson are fantastic too, and I feel I should mention Sabon by Jan Tschichold as well.

    Looking for the font used on the Atlanta Hawks jersey

    Looks very much like Playfair Display (black 900).
  18. Hey, Can anyone help me to identify the "atl"font ? It comes from the Hawks' jersey. Many thanks, A
  19. Hello guys, I have been fanatically searching for this printing border for the last couple of days but to no avail. It has been used by master typographer and book designer Mark Argetsinger (http://argetsingerbooks.com) on the following poster and bookplate : I have browsed through numerous specimens (Monotype, Linotype, Ludlow, Curwen, etc.) but I cannot find it. Besides, I am pretty sure it has been digitised and included in a font but I cannot recall where I have seen it. I would be most grateful if you could help me solve this enigma. Thank you for your time.

  21. Typical fonts (.ttf/.otf) are “outline fonts” with a mathematical description of a closed area which is then filled. What is shown in the picture is something completely different, as the system actually writes along a single path. So I don’t think you will find a matching outline font.
  22. Hi, viewing some Tiktoks about 3D-printing I came across someone who used the printer to write words with a pen. The font looks wonderful to me but making a screenshot and feeding various font-finders with the picture (and the perspectively correkted modification) unfortunately did not get me the name of the font. (sure, it was sometimes a close match*, but as one font gets that letter not bad, other letters are way of the goal....) I already asked in the comments of the video, but no response of the auther till now. Maybe you can help. Thanks a lot! *i.e. (imho): Ginza, Nesobrite, Design System C, Controller, Kardust, Orbitron, 946

    Top ten book body text fonts?

    As a self-published author who does my own book design (such as it is) and typesetting, I always struggle with getting the "right" body text combination of typeface selection, font size, and line spacing. I am a registered member of three web forums for writers. On one of them, another member and I have been discussing the notion of putting out a book to showcase several of the "best" typefaces for body text, reproducing two or three pages of some actual book in various combinations of typeface, size (probably 10-point and 11-point) and line spacing (1.0, 1.05, 1.10 and 1.15 for each font and size). If I do even ten typefaces, that's going to be a fairly thick book. I would like to ask the typography experts here for your suggestions as to what the top ten typefaces for book body text would be. To make it more difficult, since this book will be aimed at amateurs and neophytes, I want to stay with fonts they won't have to buy. Some are included with Windows, and beyond the Windows fonts I would like to limit any others to fonts that are available for free (for commercial use) from sites such as Font Squirrel, DaFont, or 1,001 Fonts. I'm starting with Times New Roman, not because I think anyone should use it for a book but because everybody is accustomed to it, so it will serve as the baseline for comparison. Beyond that, what I have so far is: Baskerville Book Antiqua (???) Bookman Old Style Caslon Century (Century Schoolbook? Are they equally good/bad?) Crimson Garamond Georgia Palatino Linotype Is there a free (for commercial use) version of Sabon/Savoy available? Thank you.
  25. The R and the W are closer to Futura than to Gill Sans, I think, but the G doesn't quite match Gill Sans or Futura or Johnston.

    I just saw the post here on TG, Monotype acquired Sharp Type. Does anyone know more about Monotype's acquisition of myfonts.com?
