  2. As noted by Gecko, unless it is a typeface with lots of alternate glyphs, it most probably is handwriting. For alternatives, see the suggestions from a previous ID request.

    answered Le Petit Prince book title font

    If you are after a font that comes a bit close then Boucherie cursive is one.

    Your opinion on the giant letters exposed in Saint-Brieuc

    I don’t see much problems with it to be honest. In this kind of “display use” context, I prefer a unique look over a bland/overused typeface. They could have used Arial. That would have been bad. 😉
  7. I am sorry i did not elaborate further. As Ralf points out, I meant that the business card uses different weights of Avenir.

    Thanks for the offer. I added Czech as an option to the database. Just click “edit” under an entry to added a translation.

    answered Looking for this Juvo font

    Thank you so much Gecko! this is absolutely perfect! saved me so much time as well, I really appreciate this.
  10. Lifesaver Riccardo - client very happy! Thank you.
  11. Agreed the bowl's of the 'd' are different as well as the 'o's. I still reckon it could be the work of Arthur Baker, he was an excellent calligrapher. Beautiful work though by an obvious master.

    Room on the Broom: cover of UK version

    So I just did a quick search for A.Gophmann and here is the answer according to Luc Devroye: http://luc.devroye.org/fonts-43962.html Alexandra Leopoldovna Gophmann Russian designer of typefaces who collaborates with Ivan Zeifert and specializes in revivals, cyrillizations and beautiful digitizations, some of them done with Anatole Gophmann. There have been complaints about her practice of borrowing fonts from type designers without asking. One typophile writes: I have cracked open fonts she claims as hers, Bolero, Bickham and others, she has copied and pasted glyphs, copyright data, added Cyrillic and changed the copyright string. As an example, Angelica is a copy of Alejandro Paul's Miss Fajardose. Alejandro has drawn the numerals in his font in 2004 to accompany the letters found in an old catalog of alphabets. There is no other source of the numerals, and Angelica has them. Michael Clark writes: I initiated a battle with the illustrious Alexandra "Bitch" from Russia who has renamed Pouty (FontBureau) and copyrighted [it as] Bolero. She and her partner Anatoly shithead. Available on Fonts101.com for anyone who wants it free. The ass's site, Jagdesh, is in Pakistan and we cannot touch him. 260+ viewings and 140+ downloads. Let's see that is 1400$ I will never see! Others have complained as well about her practice of taking and extending fonts without permission. The cyrillization would explain those extra glyphs.
  13. 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.
  14. You are a gentleman and a scholar! Thank you kindly,

    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
  18. 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/

    Looking for bitmap font from NASA Hubble early 1990s

    Most likely a custom font built in the machine they were using. There are plenty of recreations or original designs that mimic that pixel/bitmap/terminal/raster look, but possibly none that would be an exact match (examples: [1]; [2]; [3] here you can also make your own). A similar one, but constructed on a smaller grid, could be Pixel Tandysoft (low bar on |G|, seriffed |B|D|, but wrong |O|).
  22. “Over my 19-year career as a designer, I’ve amassed quite a nice collection of books on typography. Some have been more useful than others.”
