    German term for letter space ('light between the letters')

    The usual term today would be Weißraum, which just means white space. Equating ‘white’ with ‘light’ is possible I guess, but I’m not absolutely sure he was referring to this term. Maybe ask him directly? http://www.mengelt-blauen.ch/kontakt.html

    DINish looking font (Macaroni Grill)

    From Super Big Creatives website: http://superbigcreative.com/project/macaroni-grill-brand-book/ This is from the Macaroni Grill brand guidelines. This font is named "Romano's Regular", But I doubt this was designed exclusively for the restaurant. I've seen it elsewhere, I'm sure.
  5. Hi, I'm normally pretty good at finding the correct fonts but I am really struggling with this one. I am looking for the font used by Boxer Billy Joe Saunders It is the text that is in silver with the text "Billy Joe Saunders" across his shorts. I will would be really grateful if someone could help with this as I have been searching for hours, I don't mind paying if it is a commercial font.

    CORDIAL font - Where to buy?

    Your best bet is probably to contact the designer directly.

    It’s the same as the one for “TAVERN”, with some modified letters to better follow the curve: Antique Half Block 2. download at MyFonts

    Hi JS, it is hard to say for sure with the sample provided, but it could be an outlined version of Clarendon, check here.

    Zef, I’m afraid I don’t have any direct experience using his ID forum or font matching services (the owner of the site responds to gravestone type ID requests on the myfonts.com WhatTheFont forum, under the username Mr. Bills, which is how I became aware of his site).

    Line spacing

    Line spacing, interline spacing, line height or leading is the distance between the baselines of successive lines of type. The term leading has its roots in letterpress printing where it referred to the lead strips added between the lines.

    Lead & slug

    Smaller (leads) or thicker (slugs) strips used as spacing material in letterpress printing, especially to to increase the line height.

    answered Marine Corps Logo Font Need Help

    A custom wordmark for sure, but it does appear to be based on Colassalis Medium (the type has been vertically compressed and horizontally stretched a good deal).
  21. “The Daniel Berkeley Updike Collection was opened to the public in 1937, and Updike intended it to be a source of learning and inspiration to printers with a desire to elevate their craft through the study of the history of printing. The annual Updike Prize for Student Type Design was created in the same spirit, rewarding undergraduate and graduate students who make use of the Updike Collection in their creation of a new typeface or typeface family.”
