Great question! A good place to start is the faceted search tool on Typekit, which gives options for the main types of typeface and the main dimensions they can be measured against: So you could look for Typekit options that seem to match, and try them out.

Edit: to be absolutely clear; both @Ilan and my answers are correct. The difference in names is anybody's guess, but that is what happens when fonts, designers, technology and rights changes hands. Here is an interesting twist; I knew I had seen it before, and consulting my incredibly old Letraset book, I make it out to be Harrington. Seems Rossetti is ...

There are different ways to classify typefaces. user568458 covers one way in their answer - big umbrellas like sans-serif and serif, and physical characteristics. This is a great start for someone, particularly if you're not all that interested in the nerdy details. But if you are interested in matching fonts, it helps to know some of the subgenres so you ...

According to Identifont, it appears to be a variant of Parisian, a classic Art Deco font from 1928: Comparing your image to the sample above, it looks like the font in your image has slightly sharper corners than most of the cuts of Parisian I could find, and lacks some of the subtle line thickness variation. Still, it's obviously a variant of the same ...

It's definitely out of the Gill Sans family. It's closest to the Bold weight that I have locally. My guess is that there's some kind of manual alteration - it looks like it's horizontally squished a bit, and it could possibly be faux-bolded as well. However, there might be some bolder weight or condensed variant that I'm unaware of. Here's the glyphs I'm ...

Probably Century font family or a similar one. Also looks like Corona font (http://cdnimg.fonts.net/CatalogImages/23/44530.png)

Multiple editions to the original question caused this fact to disappear, thus I put this info here to show that right answer became possible after flipping the A letter and updating the post. You can read about the sources at ...

It's more art than science Classifying fonts is a tricky business full of opinions of varying quality. Here's a great quote from a Typophile thread on the topic: It's gonna be tough to get a straight answer out of people about this one. Categorizing fonts is one of those things that seems to attract an inordinate amount of attention, for results of ...

Couldn't find the correct font but this is the most similar I could find on dafont.com http://www.dafont.com/augusta.font?text=Book You're best looking through the Gothic section on dafont

Not exactly the same, but likely inspired by Xirod: The E is flipped veritcally and the R is slightly different as well.

You could see if one of these suits you: Deco Tech Mouse Deco In general, you're looking for a geometric font. The keyword deco will help you too. As always, with free fonts, make sure you have the proper license to use the font in your setting.

The group name for this type of fonts can be called and googled as "engraved". Studying the font in question I have found that font is very similar to Smaragd designed by wife of Hermann Zapf - Gudrun Zapf-von Hesse in 1953 and in book by Zapf named as Emerald font. Both designers updated their fonts after 1957 when phototypesetting was introduced and old ...

The example is set using LaTeX and is Knuth's Computer Modern — although the PDF processing doesn't appear to have done it a great deal of good.

The font is close to Thesans Classic or Light or "Hair" TheSans Hair

If you have a font in an image that you are unable to identify, the "What The Font" tool can help you identify it. It's not a perfect tool by any means, but if you're not a typography expert/savant, it can point you in the right direction.

I'm aware of Augusta, however it looks useful to add another letter B, partly similar to the B in question. The name of the font is Silver Bullet FF, and it was probably influenced by alphabet by A.Durer. other letters does not resemble the font in question.

Probably it is Proxima Nova font or Motiva Sans Thin: Alright Sans is close too but M does not match:

They are subject to practical problems, back then is was the literal bending of glass tubes. A difficult and at times ...

The main interest in this logo represents letter "G". Probably, this letter creation was inspired by letter "G" designed by George Braisher in 1961 for Packers (their site' favicon is actually represented by this letter): Almost the same lettering share Logo of football team of Grambling University - Probably because of lettering this letter G is ...

To keep it brief, you should definitely know if the font you are looking for is Serif (with serifs) or Sans Serif (without serifs). Serifs are those little "tails" at the ends of certain lines. For example Times New Roman or Cambria is Serif font and Arial, Helvetica or Calibri is Sans Serif. If you are looking for something outside of that definition, it ...
