  3. Thank both of you for your replies. This is the first time I have needed to chase down a particular font and I am glad for the assistance. For my purposes the image provided in the first reply got me plenty close to start. I brought the image into a vector based illustrator program and "traced to bitmap". That got me vectors for everything that I was able to modify to more closely resemble the original. I shortened the caps as mentioned and adjusted the line thickness on the flat tops of the 5 and 7. I also adjusted the thickness for some contrast in the top and bottom rounded parts of the 3,5,6,9.
  4. This kind of numbers were rarely based on existing typefaces, but rather created for the specific purpose. That said, the easy way to approximate them would be to pick one of the many, many versions or interpretations of Alternate Gothic #1 and substitute the |1| with |l| or |I|.
  5. The only similar font I can find is Money Machine (sans). But it would require shortening of the caps in 3/5/6/9.

    Help needed with this font (Gaylord Spices)

    I am pretty sure it is Samarkan. They just created a custom |g| for the logo, starting from the |y|. Other typefaces that have similarly constructed |g|y| include Bitling Ravish and Ananda Namaste.
  7. Cannot find the font for the name Gaylord in it, i found one name samartin but it have a different G in the start, anyone help please
  8. I would like to recreate this numbers plate from an early Ford Bronco (1966-1977)radio faceplate. This radio was also used in Ford Econolines from 1961-1967 and maybe some other Ford trucks. Free is best but any positive identification will be valuable. Thank you.
  9. The closest free for personal use I can find is Time Mover, also Franky is kinda similar.
  10. As the title suggests, I'm hoping to find fonts that most closely mimic the style in this logo. I know the logo itself is original, but I want to find the closest approximations. I'm looking for both letters and numbers. If I have to use 2 different fonts (one for each), that's ok, as long as they look reasonably close to each other. I'm specifically looking for free options, and it doesn't have to be perfect. But I'd like if the font and logo are near each other, it wouldn't look too out of place. Thanks in advance for any help!

    Somali typography resources?

    I was referring to Somali Latin. Specifically, among the things I am interested in is knowing what kind of quotation marks are used. I also note that Indesign has no Somali dictionary (neither Western nor Middle East version). I tried downloading hunspell dictionaries from other sources, but couldn’t get them to work. I will see if I can get in touch with the Pangea and Questrial folks. Thank you!
  13. Thanks, Mr. Thompson. It can be seen on her Instagram.

    Linotype Typewriter 300

    Operators working on screens like this usually sat in an almost dark environment, thus avoiding frequent tiring adaptation from surrounding light in the room and the dark monitor. This also partially avoided irritating reflections on the screen of lights of any kind in the room. Trade unions and work councils (Betriebsrat) made a big issue of this. I recall operators and programmers getting a medical prescription for greenish tinted ‘computer glasses’. Funny enough many students nowadays prefer Dark Mode on highly reflective iPads while sitting in fully lit rooms …

    Linotype Typewriter 300

    Typewriter –> Typeview It probably only makes sense in a (well maintained) series 300 environment. Note that CRT monitors usually have a limited lifetime.

    Where are you located? I would suggest to ask the nearest printing museum directly.

    I'm in possession of Linotype Typewriter 300 series. Is this worth any money?

    Somali typography resources?

    Are you talking about Osmanya or Somali Latin? I don't know of specific resources, but the Somali section on the PanAfrican Localisation Resource could be a place to start. You can also try to contact the people mentioned in these articles on pan-African typefaces: Pangea (scroll at the bottom) and Questrial.

    Somali typography resources?

    Hi, I’m looking for resources on typesetting in Somali. Googling has yielded information about the Somali alphabet, but nothing on punctuation, capitalisation, spacing etc. Do you have any suggestions, online or in print? /Måns
