    answered Gravestone font - need exact match

    Thanks Greg - it is the same mason adding the new text, so hoping that it will be a close enough match given the time elapsed. Solved - thanks everyone!

    I deal with stonemasons quite a bit and it is always worth going back to the original stonemason as they use differing tools and so even if you have the same font the new inscription can look different.

    I’d say a version of Century (or Expanded or Schoolbook). download at MyFonts

    His date of death is 1995, so likely 95 or 96 the stone was created. In a local cemetery in Nelson BC.

    Typographic Firsts

    How were the first fonts made? Who invented italics? When did we work out how to print in color? Typographic Firsts charts the formative early history of the printed or typographic book. Many of the standard features of the printed book were designed by pioneering typographers and printers in the latter half of the fifteenth century. Although Johannes Gutenberg is credited with printing the first books with moveable type, at the height of the Renaissance printers and publishers found innovative solutions to replicate the appearance of manuscript books in print and improve on them. Typographic Firsts is a look at a dozen examples of the early influences and innovations that shaped the printed book and established a typographic canon. From the technological and practical challenges of polychromatic printing or printing music staves and notes, to the challenges of illustrating books with woodcuts, producing books for children and the design of the first fonts, these stories chart the inventions, innovations and accidents that went into creating the printed book, the world's first revolution in mass communication. The book also covers printing in gold, the first female typographers and the logistics of printing maps. Typographic Firsts shows how a mixture of happenstance and brilliant technological innovation came together to form the typographic and design conventions of the book we are now familiar with. Hardback 208 pages, 245 x 190mm ISBN: 9781851244737 Publication March 2019

    Year of creation? Location? Please provide as much information as possible as explained in our forum rules.
  12. I need to match this font exactly because we're adding a name to the same grave stone. It's likely a system font but I can't find it.
  13. I'm researching about a Brazilian printing house from the 1920s, and I stumbled with this typeface on the title page. It's a kid's book, written by Monteiro Lobato (who happens to be the owner o the publishing company) and the picture was shot during my visit to Monteiro Lobato's Rare Book Collection, located in São Paulo. Lobato, M. (1925). O Garimpeiro do Rio das Garças. 1st ed. São Paulo: Cia. Graphico-Editora Monteiro Lobato. Thank you all in advance.

    Canela. Interesting book, by the way

    answered Vend book cover font

    Hi all, I'm looking for the name of the font used on this bookcover. You can see more examples of the font here https://timeasley.com/vend
  19. Sorry, but what you posted is custom lettering, not a typeface (or typefaces, given the two styles). Vaguely similar for “and the SEVEN DWARFS”—Locksley, Goudy Text Lombardic Caps, Orbe Pro. For the lowercase of Snow White, Brauhaus is good for the general form, but not for the details. Disney has always prided itself on creating custom lettering for its film titles and related projects, a practice that continues to this day.

    1998 Topps Player Name

    I am trying to find the font used for the player names in the 1998 Topps set. I've had no luck matching by the image. Thanks for your help!
  22. Hi there, Could anybody identify the specific / inspired fonts used in this limited edition collectors version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs book? Published in 1978. Please find further details on linked webpage: http://www.animationsensations.com/original-book-snow-white-collectors-edition Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks
  23. Engraved lettering, not a font. That said, except for the idiosyncratic numerals, it very much resembles the monolinear slab serif design of classic typewriter typefaces like Courier.

    Source of the image?
  25. Hello all, newbie here. Can anyone please help me identify this font? I believe it's part of the Samantha set... I have Samantha upright, but it doesn't quite look like this when I type this word with it. Many thanks!
  26. The image is the maker's mark on a 19th century wooden plane for making mouldings. This particular plane makes an ogee moulding. The mark is stamped in the end grain of the beech wood plane. As the mark shows, Josiah King worked on Bowery Street in New York City, USA. Collectors have done a lot of research on the makers of wooden planes. Estimated dates of this particular mark are 1858 to 1870. I haven't seen anything about the fonts that they used for their marks. This font seems distinctive, e.g., the digits. My interest is just curiosity.
