  1. Past hour
  2. The nearest I can get you is Marigold by Arthur Baker. Not exact but some familiarity to it. I'd suggest looking at more of his work, he was a famous calligraphy artist, 1978 would even suggest the era of photo lettering. https://www.myfonts.com/search/Marigold/

    Room on the Broom: cover of UK version

    Can't find anything identical only close so here are a few more suggestions: https://www.myfonts.com/search/uncle+stinky/ https://www.myfonts.com/search/Whimsy/ https://www.myfonts.com/search/Pizzicato/ Old Comedy http://legionfonts.com/fonts/old-comedy https://www.fontpalace.com/font-details/HogwartsWizard+Bold/
  5. When you work with text on a computer, you can easily get into the situation, that you need to use a certain character, but you don’t know which of your fonts support this character. So what do you do? Just try out every font one by one? Well, let’s look at a few ways to do this a little bit more efficiently.
  6. This is the book cover to the 1978 version of said name by author John Irving, a writer is doing a tribute to the book and needs a digital version to use in his paper, I got the book cover that he requested needing to find off of ebay at this url: https://www.ebay.com/itm/John-Irving-THE-WORLD-ACCORDING-TO-GARP-Book-Club-Edition/362833894056?_trkparms=aid%3D555018%26algo%3DPL.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D40719%26meid%3D30fb6706a45042aebe24a8b83a69b6e4%26pid%3D100012%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D283676950759%26itm%3D362833894056%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675&_trksid=p2047675.c100012.m1985
  7. Yesterday
  8. The smaller type is Futura Bold.
  9. The bigger text appears to be Monotype Franklin Gothic: which doesn’t seem to be sold anymore. However, this style of typefaces, the so-called “American Gothics”, whose most famous iterations are Franklin/Trade/News/Alternate Gothic, are available in various widths, in any price range, from a variety of foundries. As for the smaller text, it is possibly a regular width of the same typeface.
  10. Hello, I saw this old-looking paper sign posted at the entrance to Lamont Library at Harvard today and I liked its appearance. I would love to replicate it in a standard font, ideally web-safe. Can anyone identify these fonts, as well as any spacing that might have been adjusted? I have no way of knowing when this sign was posted but it looks old. Thank you!
  11. You are a gentleman and a scholar! Thank you kindly,

    It looks like hand lettering. One of my favorites in this style is LTR Salmiak: http://www.letterror.com/fonts/salmiak.html

  17. I'm currently pagesetting a translation of Room on the Broom. Since I'm from the UK, the version of Room on the Broom which I know is the English one. It means that, to me, this is the 'official logotype', and so I'd like to replicate it. There are no non-Latin glyphs in the translation, so whichever font produced the English logotype should be fine. It seems to me that no other translation uses this same font, so I'm not hopeful. Is there anything similar which you you could recommend in the event that it's not possible to identify this one?
  18. Hello everyone, i am currently working on a project for an elderly client, of which she is putting together an 80 year history of her families life into a book. She brought in a front page with a font that is so familiar to me, but I cannot put my finger on it, its almost on the tip of my tongue, if anyone is able to help me out that would be hugely appreciated, many thanks, Jason

  23. Hi! Does anyone recognize the font for Finnish personal trainer Body by Rose? Thanks,
  24. Ralf Herrmann

    answered Typeface from 1680-1710

    The linked font was of questionable legality, so I removed it. The original for this design should be: download at MyFonts
  25. It looks to me like Impact Italic has been customised with some slashes added by the design team and the numbers thickened. https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/urw/impact/t/
  26. Graphik X Condensed Bold for the headings, a custom version of Graphik (see |l|) for the rest.
