Group Description

Film/movie posters making prominent use of the Trajan typeface, that is, the title at least should be typeset in Trajan. The original Trajan typeface was designed by Carol Twombly and is based on the ancient Roman »Capitalis Monumentalis«.

A very large (and, apparently, growing) number of US productions use Trajan on their posters, so it shouldn't be hard to find examples for this :)

To see what Trajan looks like, check out this online specimen:

More about Trajan:

splorp told me about »Cheshire Dave's humorous animated short entitled Etched in Stone. It's a pseudo mystery involving the use (or over use) of Trajan in movie titles and posters. There's also a teaser trailer«. Thanks, splorp!!
