    Term for cursive "r" used in America?

    In old, handwritten manuscripts, the lowercase r existed in various forms, depending on whether it started or ended a word and the letters to which it connected. The Palmer Method (late 19th/early 20th century) of teaching handwriting in the US taught both styles (as is still the case in many other countries), but when it was supplanted by the Zaner-Bloser method in the 1950s and the D'Nealian method in the 1970s, only the bottom-connecting style of r survived. My parents were taught the Palmer Method, I was taught Zaner-Bloser. I’ve always thought of the two styles as top- or middle-connecting and bottom-connecting, but there doesn’t seem to be a formal name for them.

    Looking for font used by youth ice hockey team

    Not finding a match either. I even straightened it out and searched on that version, with no luck. Sunday Clarendon Bold Italic is similar (just stretch it out a bit and maybe add a stroke to beef it up).

    Looking for font used by local village (Garden City)

    Just wanted to say thank you for the help this was close enough for my needs, this can be closed!!
  8. Of course it will also depend on the user interface offered by the software (I know, not the best track record overall in this regard). I imagine that the |I| and |B| buttons in Office or in the various WYSIWYG (web) text editors will not go away anytime soon, and the sliders could be added as an optional “expert” feature. So it will be up to type designers to offer sensible instances for those (and also BI, of course). Same should go for optical sizes, for example. Also for the “just a few styles” versus “a variable font with everything in it”, I don’t think they are mutually exclusive: both would be “variable” fonts, one with few fixed instances, and the other with the full range of possibilities. Ideally one could pick just the features they want, along the lines of what you can now do with Input or Universal Sans.

    New font of Star Gold in use since February 2020

    As a matter of fact I’d written that line on Logopedia myself! However it is only an assumption, and the fonts are by no means the same. Notice the words ‘appears to be’ there. The font does have a lot of Gotham, Proxima Nova and Gilroy in it, while the lowercase, especially that single-storeyed ‘a’ and double-storeyed ‘g’, is reminiscent of Tarzana.
  11. You guys are AMAZING. Seriously- I appreciate you SO much. Its so odd to me that they mix matched stuff, which is why its been SO difficult to identify. Thank you!!
  12. Trying to identify the font used in BTS - "Map of the soul" and "7". I can't seem to find the exact font used in these. Link for further reference https://ibighit.com/bts/eng/ Would appreciate if you could help me find the original font or alternatives are okay as well. Thank you in advance!

    Your Typophile Account on Typography.Guru

    Interestingly enough, but probably unsurprisingly, once the accounts are merged, they disappear from the list of Typophile members.

    Something New from the Typophile Forum?

    Update: So I brought over around 25,000 Typophile posts from around 2000 users. The import script worked quite good: Example. You can go to the end of our Talk forum to see many of the imported topics. https://typography.guru/forums/forum/2-talk/page/60/ However, there was actually much less content indexed on the Wayback Machine than I originally thought. The forum pagination suggested lots of content, but since the Wayback Machine is built around snapshots, different pages would just return the same content over and over again and much of the content was completely unavailable. So without access to the original database, bringing most of the content over here isn’t really possible. In addition, while trying to go through each topic, I noticed how little permanent value there was in most of the old Typophile topics. So in the end I focused on actual discussions and questions which might come up again in the future and so I only selected specific topics for the import. Most of the topics are from the general discussion board on Typophile. Plus some from the Design board. Nothing from Build or Font ID at this time. I also brought over three special interest groups as clubs with almost all content intact. https://typography.guru/clubs/ All imported Typophile posts are regular forum posts now and so the imported content isn’t just an archive, but the discussions can actually be continued! 🙂 I will make a separate post about the option to assign your old Typophile content to your Typography.Guru account.
