Book Layout: How would you format long speeches / sermons?

I'm currently working on converting a religious book from its traditional verse-by-verse format into a verse-less, continuous edition. The book has many, many sermons and lectures. I'm at a loss for how to format them in a way which distinguishes them from the narrative, but isn't too detached from the surrounding text. [more inside]

Font to replace Papyrus?

Looking for a typeface for a wellness/holistic medicine practice. I know that Papyrus font is a cliche, but it's an effective visual shorthand for this kind of business. Are there other fonts that are less overused, but would still convey or fit with that vibe of green, organic, holistic, natural? [more inside]

Looking for image of the word "push" that reads as "pull" upside down.

Maybe I'm just imagining this, but I seem to remember seeing an example of the word "Push" that when viewed upside down read as the word "Pull". My fever dream or a reality?

Typographers of the World, Unite!

I'm vector-izing this header plate from an old edition of my labor union's newspaper for use in future editions. Obviously I'll be tracing the hand-lettering of "Industrial Worker", but I'd like to find a font that matches as closely as possible the sans serif lettering used for "Labor Produces all Wealth..." and the slogans on the banners.

Typophiles: What's the Hominis Font Like?

I really like the font titled Hominis. I'd love to know what historical era the style belongs to--Victorian?--as well as what typeface it might have been modeled after, if it doesn't seem original. (I attempted to contact the designer, but was unsuccessful.) Thanks in advance.

Fonts with the X-factor

Typographers, designers, and font geeks: I'm looking for fonts with a distinctive and stylish letter "X". Other criteria: sans serif, not too ornate, and preferably free to download. The X is going to form part of a word, so as well as being distinctive it should also fit nicely with the other characters. Thanks in advance (:

How do I elegantly present tabular, statistical data online?

How do I elegantly present tabular, statistical data online and automatically? I'd love some examples of beautifully presented tabular data online - something that works natively in a browser, ideally also on a tablet and mobile as well. Some interactivity (sorting, filtering) also OK but priority is usability and elegance like you'd find in printed statistical abstracts. Bonus points for open source web tools / frameworks that could help automate this from a database! [more inside]

Different types of the letter "a"

Typography / InDesign Filter. How can I change the letter "a" of my Gotham typeface? The "a" displayed by default is the "two-story a". However I'd like to use the "one-story" one. I know I can switch manually each "a" of my document via the Glyph window in InDesign. But is there an easier and faster way to automatically switch from "two-story a" to "one-story a"? I've searched in the Preferences panel / Text panel without success... I have InDesign CS5, Font Explorer X Pro and work on Mac. Thank you in advance!
