I've already spent three days with this design. I try to have a sedated version of Caslon, but not with a Dutch or French dryness. I also make this font with a tall x-height for newspaper use, where Caslon is seldom used.

Hinting this one is a bugger, but here is a pdf.

Ex "Politica ExtraLight"

a WIP of a new weight for "Politica" family font. The "Politics" concept is based on a politician broke moment, called "State strike", playing with the oposite between curves and broken strokes, like a comparison between politicians forms, their formal words and acid messages always exchange between them.

Critiques and Comments always welcomed.

It has several weights — shown here are just two of them.
The two similar fonts I know are ChunkFive and Egytian Slate.

Thanks

I'm looking for a Serif typeface with a specific R. It has a weird diagonal that looks a bit like a tail.. I cant seem to find a fitting typeface that has the same letter. I've attached an image of it.. . Anybody?

I'm trying to figure out what serif font Roots is using in their Holiday Gift Guide 2013 flyer. It seems like the typeface has some slight roughness/degradation but I'm not sure if this is because of the paper used. The uppercase 'P' also is similar to Palatino in that it does not touch. Can anyone figure this out or let me know which typeface might be close?

So a few days ago I began work on my very first typeface. I am a graphic design student and I haven't built up a great sensitivity to type yet so i would like to get some feedback on the very early stages of my font.

These are the only letters that i have so far, I wouldn't say they are complete in any regards but they are the first to have form. I think that the next letters I will work on will be the lower case and uppercase E as well as the lower case and upper case C.

I was hoping to get some feedback on multiple aspects of the font. First of all, I would like some feedback on the negative space. So far there hasn't been any work on actual letter spacing so I don't need feedback on that this early in the process but I would like to know about how well the counters work and the space around the letters. Secondly I would like some feedback on the stresses and on the stroke weight. Specifically I would love some feedback on the lowercase a. I have been having some trouble in getting it to match with the other characters. Also, as I don't even know what I don't know I would like any other feedback that may be offered.

I thank you in advance for anyone willing to lend their experience and insight. The font is very early in its creation (i haven't even thought of what to call it when it's finished) and it will most likely change very very drastically before it is finished.

Hi guys. Do you know any (successful) examples of typefaces that mix historical models within the same design? I’m thinking of something like the attached image. Albeit, there’s a lot of strange stuff going on here, but the part I’m interested in discussing is the how the branch grow out of the stem in r/a vs. n-based shapes. The ‘r’ would need to be treated different from ‘n’ in any typeface, so I’m thinking: why not find its echo somewhere else than in ‘n’ altogether?

Apologies for the poor English. (And the poor design too. I’m in the process of learning how to draw serifs.)

I have been loving the Benedictine face since I first saw it a few months ago on pages 30-31 of McGrew's American Metal Typefaces of the Twentieth Century. I searched once and again for information about it on the Internet, and, apart from a couple of sample images, I could only find (naturally) an old but quite revealing post on Typophile, and, of course, that wonderful manual on typography by Mergenthaler Linotype from 1923.

Given that no one seems to have carried the remarkable beauty of the Benedictine family (an apparently forgotten gem) into the modern OpenType world, I decided to do it myself ...

The Book weight (including small caps and italics) is almost finished, with Regular and Bold following (hopefully) shortly. For more information (including detailed specimen and sample sheets) please visit alterlittera.com. I would be extremely grateful if you could send your advice on this project.

Thanks in advance.

I like these typefaces because they are quite rounded.
Especially the first one (dark background) I love the serif with that round movement. I will be glad if anyone knows the name of these 2 types

cheers
