Rocket Pop and Rocket Pop Outline are influenced by product packaging and cereal box art from the 1960's and 1970's. The fonts will work as companions or separate. Best used over 36pt as a headline display face, these fonts will bring a bold playfulness to any project where a vintage or retro style is in the concept. The style reflects the era when things were indeed, mad, where men (and some women) did crazy art for vinyl records, food packaging and kiddie products. Sugar frosted blue donut cereal is yummy for your tummy like... Rocket Pop and Rocket Pop Outline. Buy both and get the discount! Watch for the Cerealboxx Set coming soon that will include the astroluxtype fonts, Sugarbang! Koo Koo Puff and Rocket Pop together in one box.

Hi, I'd like to know if anybody can identify these 2 fonts?
I'm a noobie at font identifying and the online ID sites couldn't find an exact match.
Any close font ID's are welcomed as well. Thanks!

Any help much appreciated.

Many thanks

Hi

Before I trace these characters in illustrator, does anybody recognise any of these fonts? I'm assuming they're all from the 60s, possibly 70s.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Hello Typophiles,

I'm specifically looking for an easy way to outline and offset type similar to the examples I've attached. However, I would also be interested in any other vintage type effect tips and tutorials anyone has to share. If anyone can help that'd be great.

Thanks! -Mariel

I've been looking and not really finding lettering from the 1930-1950 - real lettering, not remakes of.
The "Vespa" style is what I'd really like to find more of. Car logos have been my best resource so far,
but industrial style product or company logos would really be good. Attached is some of what I've found.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
Dan Cotton

Any leads identifying this or similar font suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Alphabet Soup Type Founders and Michael Doret are proud to announce the Release of Dark Angel, a “blackletter/hybrid” font. This font had its genesis in a logo sketch for the Anaheim Angels baseball team—thus its name.
Type purists may be appalled by the lack of adherence to traditional forms, but the font should be seen as only “in the spirit of” blackletter, and attempting something that hasn’t been seen or done before—something that feels traditional, yet at the same time fresh and perhaps unexpected.

Dark Angel can be purchased in its regular solid form, or as Dark Angel Underlight—a handtooled font. If these two fonts are purchased together, the Family package will contain a third font—Dark Angel Highlight. With this font layered over the basic font, you can achieve two–color typesetting when the highlight and the base font are assigned two different colors.

With Stylistic Alternates you can go either “Plain” or “Fancy”, changing the look of your copy to suit your needs. Compare the two samples below. Some characters have multiple alternates.

And furthermore…

Dark Angel has enough language support to make the builders of Babel envious—its 1,163 glyphs can be used to set copy in 59 different languages. From A to Z: Afrikaans, Albanian, Basque, Bemba, Bosnian, Catalan, Cornish, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Esperanto, Estonian, Faroese, Filipino, Finnish, French, Galician, Ganda, German, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Kalaallisut, Kamba, Kikuyu, Kinyarwanda, Lithuanian, Luo, Malagasy, Malay, Maltese, Manx, Morisyen, North Ndebele, Norwegian Bokmål, Norwegian Nynorsk, Nyankole, Oromo, Polish, Portuguese, Romansh, Sango, Shona, Slovak, Slovenian, Somali, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Swiss German, Turkish, Welsh, and last (but not least) Zulu.

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone got a hi res scan of this? I want to use it for a project, but can't find a digital version. Only a non-outline version called "Lucifer" have been digitalised. Not sure why it's called that. Was there never a Pluto Regular?

cheers,

Pookey

Arabesque and Bon Air, two alphabets from two different centuries, are not what most people immediately think of when they think "wood type". These quirky script fonts simulate hand lettering from very different eras and are now brought into the digital age for the first time ever. A third font, Catchwords , brings a classic printshop resource into the digital designer's toolbox.

Detailed information regarding these releases, including the "Making Of The Font" feature, can be found at the Hamilton Wood Type Foundry website: here.

HWT Arabesque is long lost Art Nouveau wood type from the Hamilton Collection. It evokes the excesses of Victorian design and the equally quirky 1960s Psychedelic era revival of the Victorian type styles. Many characters have a lively eccentricity that were all left true to the original design. Additional characters were designed to fill out the standard range of characters found in digital fonts. This font includes over 280 characters for full unicode support of Western and Central European Latin characters.

HWT Bon Air is a "Mad Men" era display font. It was one of a series of script typefaces cut into wood by the Hamilton Manufacturing Company for the Morgan Sign Machine Co. in the mid 20th Century. The font was issued with several alternate letters and ligatures to simulate the effect of hand lettering. Its lively strokes and odd details give it an exotic flavor suitable for advertising display work. The digital version includes all of the original alternates plus new characters to fill out a full European character set.

Catchwords have always been offered alongside standard alphabets in wood type catalogs and so often appear on posters as a decorative punch that they have become part of the wood type vernacular. Words like 'The', 'And', 'To', 'For', and less common abbreviations could be inserted into a design along with decorative ornaments or stars when space was tight or to add variety in the design. HWT Catchwords features over 80 words based directly on designs offered by Hamilton and other wood type manufacturers of the 19th and early 20th Century.

So, I have a ton of vintage type specimen books and wood type references, but I'm looking for some particular knowledge/advice. I'm working on the brand for a restaurant that is described as "John D. Rockefeller and Theodore Roosevelt enjoying a whiskey together."
Obviously, there is a ton of reference to Victorian and Art Nouveau which would come right before and Bauhaus / De stijl which would come right after, but I'm trying to pinpoint if there is a typographic "style" that would have appeared in New York City in the year 1900. I'm trying to avoid "western" (wood type) and european (overly ornamental)...

any thoughts and resources/examples would be very much appreciated! Thank you!

Hello, I found this vintage poster online, and I really like the font at the bottom of the poster. I tried a couple different methods to try and see if there was a font for it, but didn't find anything. I figured maybe someone has seen the font before or maybe something similar?

The link to the actual poster is below. I am also attaching a rough tracing of the font as a jpeg in case that helps.

Thanks in advance!

Hi there,

Looking for something similar to this retro/vintage script font (used on an 80s portuguese tv show).
The letters aren't even the same so this is probably all handwritten - but I'm desperately looking for something like this.

The words are cut - it read 'ora' and 'olha' (the complete words would be 'agora escolha').

Thanks in advance!

Alianza is a complex typographic system wich includes three different but complementary styles so far: Slab, italic and script, with nine weights each one; plus three sets of ornamental fonts: labels, negative labels and ornaments.

The soul of the family is a slab feeling applied judiciously to the italic and script styles to make it coherent with the whole system.

Each style has three sets of figures: Proportional lining, tabular lining and old style.

You can mix the three styles in a single piece to obtain more expressive results without worring about the uniformity and complementing the design by using the ornamental sets.

Hello all,

I found this image in an old french book of lettres. I was wondering if it could be desaturated and made into a font somehow. I do not have the resources or the know-how to do this. If you're able to do this and don't mind, I'd be very appreciative if you could send me over the .otf or .ttf file.

Thanks

Any ideas on this one? have hunted high and low, have come close but no cigar.
