I quite like this font but I'm not 100% on it, I've searched for "alternatives to tostada font" but my searches don't come up with much. Is there a special name for this sort of font? I don't have the vocabulary to describe the style, it's serif but the bars(?) are invisible.

Failing that, do you know of any alternatives to this you could share with me?

  • Technically it's like it's made for stencils. I'm not at all sure would anyone who cuts painting stencils with a razor blade bother to make something this fine.. You find easily a little more coarse items for ex. in dafont.com Search for stencil fonts.

It's a stencil font, basically, but the gaps are bigger than on most stencil faces and the horizontal strokes thicker. It's sort of like a Didone or modern face with the thin strokes deleted. Try "stencil Didone font" or "stencil modern serif". Commercial Type have a few fonts like this-Dala is good, or Dala Moa, or Le Jeune is more of a modern but not as bold. Their Dala Prisma isn't quite what you asked for but really amazing.
