How can I format a book like the sample in the image? The chapter number uses the font Algerian, but I am not sure about the headings and subheadings. Are there similar latex fonts that I can incorporate easily? I use Texnic Center.

• With the titlesec package, for instance. – Bernard May 1 '16 at 13:32
• @Bernard Thanks. I will try it out. So I will have to use the book class, right? I am having trouble identifying the fonts. – lexxie May 1 '16 at 13:36
• The report class also has chapters. For the font it will be tougher. In particular, for section titles, you need a font with a condensed version. – Bernard May 1 '16 at 13:54
• The closest I know should be TeXGyre Termes (but it doesn't have a condensed version). – Bernard May 1 '16 at 14:22
• How do I instruct latex to use it? :( I am too new to this. I have only worked with templates and stuff before. – lexxie May 1 '16 at 15:32

Here is a solution (I used erewhon, a clone and extension of Adobe Utopia).

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{geometry}

\usepackage[explicit]{titlesec}
\usepackage{array, graphicx} \usepackage[tracking=true]{microtype}
\usepackage{fourier, erewhon} \usepackage{lipsum}% just to generate text for the example

\titleformat{\chapter}[display]{\centering\bfseries\Huge\lsstyle}%
{\titlerule[1.5pt]\vskip1ex\scalebox{1}[1.2]{\thechapter}\\[-1ex]\rule{5cm}{0.5pt}}{0ex}%
{#1\endgraf\titlerule\vskip2pt\titlerule[1.5pt]}

\titleformat{\section}[block]{\bfseries\LARGE}{}{0em}{\noindent\begin{tabular}{@{}ll@{}}\thesection & \MakeUppercase{#1}\\[-0.1ex]\hline\end{tabular}}

\begin{document}
\setcounter{chapter}{10}
