  3. Help for this font

    Lettering, not a typeface. You can perhaps find something suitable looking for "concave", or other similar keywords.

  6. Opinions on justification

    Good copywriting is always a good idea, not just on the web! Hyphenation is a must for any justified text from well before Gutenberg (that’s one reason why ebook readers that force justified text without hyphenation are [insert expletive here]). On the other hand, for ragged text, automatic hyphenation could, at times, produce unwanted or less than ideal results.
  7. Good sans serif pair for Cambria?

    Why would Cambria not be OK for printed material? The designer, Jelle Bosma did not design it to be used on screen in particular. After all, Cambria is more or less a redesign of Forlane, a typeface he designed for Scangraphic around 1990. We both worked at that company at that time. The similarity with Source Sans is interesting! By the way, Cambria Math is used for all ISO-Standards since a few years and national standard-organisations are currently switching to publishing their standards using Cambria Math as well. DIN started to switch to Cambria Math in 2016. An enormous progress when compared with the previous hodgepodge of Arial for text, Times for formulas and the like and Isonorm for lettering in technical drawings. The only thing I do not like about Cambria Math is that the descending strokes of the old style figures 3, 4 and 5 are terminated with serifs. This emphasises the descending strokes and thereby causes numbers in old style figures to outstand more than necessary.

  11. Your favorite version of Caslon?

    My friend and partner, the late Justin Howes, did Founder’s Caslon for ITC based on the original Matrices in a huge range of weight variants. It was a considerable undertaking and was well-regarded on its release. See You can also see a short description here: under ITC Founder's Caslon (1998)
  12. Tahoma Look Alike

    Also, Tahoma and Verdana are closely related, but neither is a “knock off” of anything else. I would be curious to know the putative source of that incorrect information.

  14. Book with collection of the most common typefaces (fonts)

    Since there are now tens of thousands of fonts available with dozens being released every week, such books aren’t really feasible anymore. Either the choice gets very personal … … or overwhelming: Having such books doesn’t hurt of course, but as a tool to “choose a typeface for every project” you are missing out on many choices.

  20. Italian Serif 1970s Cycling Font

    I suspect it is a custom logo, but based on Clarendon—raise the middle vertex of the M a bit, add a serif to the lower right of the N, and you’ll have a decent approximation.
  21. 1950 British Empire Games – Pennant font(s)

    Hello Kevin Thanks for taking the time to make some suggestions and yes – I should probably think of these examples as hand-lettered rather than typographically perfect. The Auckland and 1950 suggestions are spot-on. For British Empire Games, as you say, I will probably have some more work to do e.g. the "non-symmetrical" style of the Upper Case B. Cheers again – a great starting point. Best, Christian
