Working on a new project and trying to set the overall mood and tone for the site. I'm experimenting a bit with some photos I took the last time I was in NYC and scans of old French typography books from the 1940s.

looks sick! what's the name of that type? so nice
The name of the type face is apparently "Antique de Fantaisie" although it's a scan from a 1940s typography book and not a font itself. For this shot I just clipped out the letters and hand set them.
Here's a picture of the scan - http://cloud.jonathanmoore.com/73z5
wow, so cool!that is one helluva typeface..so bold and stylish
This is rad
@Luke - I agree. Someone who knows how to create fonts should take the scan and turn it into a real font.
I just added the full scan as an attachment to the post.
@Jonathan yea, its basically a full font...rather exciting that its got some missing characters :) haven't found it anywhere online yet.wonder if it has any copyright?
@Luke I haven't studied up on French copyright law in a while (or ever), but if I understand it right it becomes public domain 70 years after the creator dies. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_copyright_law Since the book was published in 1946 the copyright probably still exists, but I can't find much on the designer - http://www.google.fr/#sclient=psy&hl=fr&source=hp&q=dessinés+par+m.+moullet+typographie
I am right there amongst the elegant gentlemen in top hats and overcoats. Very much looking forward to seeing how this develops. Beautiful work.
Love the inverted city shot in the bg.
This is a great shot... thanks for the scan too!
I used some of the letters from that amazing typeface in this shot.
