New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
The face is Electra, but is it metal?
My hunch is yes, though I pause only because
the book was last printed in 1969 though I just purchased
the copy with its newly designed cover two months ago.
The book, "A Special Providence" is by Richard Yates.
(I don't recommend it - try his Revolutionary Road first)
Anyway, it's at least a worthy exercise to see Electra in
metal(?) if only to understand how radically technology
can alter the original intent of a typeface.
