Looking for the font of this city name (Bliesgau)


Recommended Posts


Hello everyone,

I am looking for the font of this City, which I found from a magazine (undated). I need a free alternative if possible. Thanks everyone.

It being cast in metal, I doubt it ever was a printing typeface.

For something similar in concept, you could want to have a look at Bodoni Z37 (not free, but cheap, and you can also mix different widths to mimic the wide capital of your sample).

wouldn't metal plate also have some sort of a typeface library?

Nope. Here is an article on the subject:

the font posted is non-existent?

Better put, it isn’t a font. Probably no other letter was made except for the ones needed to spell “Bliesgau”.
