Nice indeed. The shapes of the serifs remind me a bit of the Renault typeface, but your sample is way better.

Hey you're right - the Renault typeface is very similar, but damnit i want that 'g'.

Bald Condensed's picture

I can't blame you. What a clunky lc 'g' in the Renault typeface.

There's some Emona Condensed in there, but not for the serif shapes.

Scherzo by Albert Boton is even more off. :/

Pleased to see you're not giving in, Yves :]

Emona Condensed is actually quite nice, but i like the other's clunkier, less round, less elegant feel:

The lc 'g' is quite Zapfesque.

Superfamous's picture

Ah.. we are getting warmer - the 'g' as well as the 'C' and the 'v' are very similar. How you are locating these is beyond me.

I can't remember the name of the designer and name of the font, sorry. But I'm pretty sure its a custom font designed by a English Type designer who have worked at Wolf Olins after Jeremy Tankard. The type seems based on Melior.

I was not giving in YET. I've done a complete run through the FontBook and alas... nothing to show for. I'm very sorry, I hope my distinguished colleagues can be of more use.

PS: Furthermore, I can't afford to give in, lest I get dissed major way.

And Verona goes full circle. :-)

Wow Jonathan, you just blew me out of the water here. I wasn't even aware of this thread. Shows I need to spend more time over at the Critiques.

Great work!

P.S. I've always been a fan of Miles', but I never would've guessed this'd be his work.

So Verona it is. What a beauty. Thanks Jonathan. Yves, we al know you would have cracked it sooner or later :] on top of that, it's always an honor geting a response from Jean Porchez - cheers.

I wish I had been awake for this one. ;)

Points go to Jonathan for knowing the Typophile archives
so well. Points to Yves for knowing Zapf so well. Points to
folkert for the nice toss out. Good to see you here, Mr. Famous.
