I don't know what is it.
An enhanced image may help somebody to find it:

I found the custom printer in Syracuse, NY, who created these letterpress invitations, and their inspiration gallery features another invitation that uses the same typeface:

It appears to be an outline version of AW Conquerer (italic glyphs) designed by Jean François Porchez. It is available (seemingly for free) at

There are nine AW Conqueror fonts. They are indeed free. If you do not already have a Typofondrie account you need to create one. You want the AW Conqueror Didot Light. The swash letters are called A.alt etc.

I have no information on an outline version.

The fonts can also be had (perhaps a bit easier) from the website.

Here is G in the style of the outline font used in the invitation.
The recipe is to use a parallel lines feature in a program that can manipulate fonts, set the lines at 10 points in and 10 out, and edit to delete unneeded lines. To make the tangle of lines easier to handle, I did it in three stages: 1. 10 points out; 2. 10 points in for the fill; 3. paste the cleaned up fill from 2. into the cleaned up outline from 1. I used Fontlab. There are other tools.

Thank you all so much!
