Hi,

Can anyone identify the typeface or faces in this book cover from 1825?

Thanks very much!

I believe it's Bodoni, but I will let you investigate exactly which versions would fit best. There are many, and in this case, you may not find an exact match with the digital fonts available vs the printed sample you have.

Ok. Thanks. That was actually the first one I tried. I think the bold weight is right for most of it but it's not nearly big enough for "BOXING."

Thanks again.

there are extra bolds, and poster weights. one of the other contributors here may have better input as well.
