Would anyone be able to identify this font and/or provide an approximation that is currently available?
Thank you for your help
A special map font, that has been digitized as is Römisch Stehend.
Thanks very much Don.
Ah that is the date of the data on the map, but it was issued during WW2 - I'm a historian, not that bad on dates thankfully. After cropping the Reichsadler I can see why that might be a bit misleading, apologies.
I wasn't sure if the typeface was from the WW2 reissue or the original version (I don't have a copy of the original to hand), hence why the request was labelled as "WW2" - again, thanks for your help.
No problem. As for the italic, the digitized Römisch Stehend family has merely a sloped Roman, as Römisch Liegend. The _g_ in your map is the most noticiable difference at this scale. You could edit Römisch Liegend or use another high contrast italic.
Brilliant, thanks very much
