The base font looks like Rockwell ExtraBold with the colour bands and 3D 'telescope' added by the designer.

I imagine that was created with a fat marker pen and scanned. Not a font.

Thanks a lot!

And the first is here (it has a thin line that runs between the diamonds and the characters, but this is it):

Can anyone help me?

I got an old 80's tourist book from Hungary and the used font is really weird.
It looks like a mixture of Erato and American Garamond

Here is a sample from a page.

Note the number 4 which is below the baseline as in the Erato.
But also note the lowercase y and r which are not like in the Erato, but the same as in American Garamond.
So what is it? For me it looks like a mixture of both.
Also, the Erato font was released in 2011 so it can't be.
(And they haven't used a different font for page numbers. Where numbers are in the text, the font is the same)

I have already identified the font Deutsche Zierschrift, I'm looking to see if anybody can locate anybody using it.

Yes! Should have mentioned... I'm using it for a logo for my personal company. Unfortunately the company doesn't make any money, but it's mine, all mine!!!

Really, I'll probably use it more for social media and the like. The logo is mostly done, just a few tweaks to work out. It's based on my last name and a manipulation of one of the fonts letters.

OK, cool. I'll look forward to seeing your final logo then.
As far as anyone else using this font is concerned, I'd imagine there isn't much usage out there than the odd possible German newspaper masthead. (I've checked and can't find any)

Have you fully considered legibility of your logo in an online environment?

Take a look and tell me what you think. Not the final, but close. The logo is actually the first letter duplicated in a square. I call it a box 4K.

Unfortunately the bowl of the capital "P" in American Garamond is closed, whereas your example is not.

The closest I can find is Monotype Garamond Roman. This is close, but no cigar...
http://www.fontshop.com/fonts/single...aramond_roman/

But even that does not have oldstyle or expert numerals. It is of course entirely possible that the folios were set in a different font.

Have you checked the colophon at the front of the book to see if the fonts in question are listed?

I'm pretty certain it's a member of the Garamond Family. (Is it not Erato).
Check the uppercase "P" and "K" (leg length), and the lowercase "a" and "g" (link length and ear position) for identification... good luck

I must admit I'm pleasantly surprised. I like it.
Nice work.

I'm betting that's either hand drawn or seriously tweaked - not an off the shelf font.

I've been after The Economist font for a long time. I actually e-mailed them once, asking where it could be purchased however they weren't very accommodating. Can anyone suggest some free alternatives as close to the font as possible?

Hi Guys, trust you type gurus to help me identify these... I'm doing some work for a guy who had his logo commissioned, but they didn't tell him the name of the fonts...

You Sir, are a gentleman! Thank you!

I'm not with my copy of Photoshop right now, are either included?

I thought the lower font was Univers, so thank you for your input!
