  1. Yesterday
  2. As an alternative, perhaps Expressa could fit the bill.
  3. It’s Blippo Bold. Unfortunately, it seems that only Blippo Black is available in digital form.
  4. Your favorite version of Caslon?

  5. Your favorite version of Caslon?

    There is also William's Caslon from FB
  6. I've attached an image of a paperback cover to the book "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" As far as I can tell, the book was printed in 1969. I'm looking for the font used for the title for a tattoo. If I could be directed to where to buy the actual font that would be ideal but even something similar will work. Thank you very much.
  7. Guillemets (French quotes)

    Guillemets are a pair of punctuation marks in the form of sideways double chevrons (« and »), used as quotation mark.

  10. Typical British Fonts 🇬🇧

    For what is worth, Wikipedia classifies it as “grotesque”, but also “mixed” and “signage”. The latter seems to me the most relevant in this case.
  11. ANSWERED Need specific decorative-script-vintage font

    That's it. Thanks!
  12. Typical British Fonts 🇬🇧

    How do you classify the typeface Transport? Is it a ‘humanist sans’ (see the lowercase "a, l, t") or a ‘neo-grotesque’? Thanks.
  13. Hi all, I have been looking literally thousands of fonts but cannot find the one shown in the photo. I also have attached an approximated "A" which seems to be very particular to that font. Thanks in advance.
  14. Thank you, Riccardo. I did end up going with Geogrotesque as that was the closest I could find. I just adjusted the horizontal scale to stretch out the lettering and my customer agreed it was close enough. Appreciate you taking the time to respond!

  16. DiResta letterpress machines

    I found that quite interesting/entertaining:
  17. The straight sides of |O| and |C|, along with the low middle bars of |E| and |H| are pretty peculiar traits. I haven't found anything matching. As for similar designs, perhaps an horizontally stretched (or vertically compressed) Canter could come close. Or, perhaps, Geogrotesque: download at MyFonts

    The list seems lacking in light monolinear styles, like Astloch or Elfen Fraktur.

    Modern blackletter typefaces or reinterpretations with a contemporary feel.
  23. ANSWERED Looking for the Font in this receipt image.

    Those aren’t regular desktop fonts. Those are dot matrix fonts built for and into the specific cash register system that café is using.
  24. Please help me by identifying the font used in this image of a receipt.I tried using the available online tools but they are not able to identify the correct font as the image is not very clear, not my fault though,it is printed on a thermal paper in that quality,so i can't get a clearer image.Please help me find the closest possible font.
  25. “The Making of a Renaissance Book”, originally issued as a black-and-white film shot on location at the Plantin-Moretus Museum in Antwerp, covers cutting a type punch; making a copper strike and justifying the matrix; casting and dressing the type; composition, imposition and proof-reading; inking and running off the sheets; stop-press corrections.
  26. Sometime around 2014 I designed some artwork which used two fonts. Unfortunately I failed to keep the fonts and the characters were converted to paths in the original Illustrator file, so I have no idea which fonts were used. I've attached an export of the text from my design. I've spent a few hours searching online font services and I've found some fonts that somewhat close, but no luck finding these. I don't remember if they were free or not. I care more about finding these exact fonts, so type/price isn't a concern right now.
