I was told this was Bembo - but no version of bembo I have has such a tall x-height. Please help ID.
Dude, that’s fake small caps. It is Bembo.
What do you mean FAKE?
It’s just the setting. The P in Picnics is set larger than the rest.
I see - we are redesigning a website and the client uses this for their headlines - the X-height on a standard small cap is too low makes it seem awkward. Small-cap in CSS is even smaller than that.
you might just have to make them as images & customize the x height from software. indesign is a simple preference setting. i think standard is 70%. of course, opentype is a whole different story as it carries its own idea of what to do.
