Rongel comes close:

So does Arbesco

Galliard was my first thought (which is based on Granjon), but I don't see much (if any) upward serif on the top of the T on your sample.

Sharing more information would make the search easier. That could be bespoke, exclusive for some newspaper...

thank you for the swift reply - I suspect its a modified version of Galliard.

To echo Ryuk, anyone reading this who wants a font ID please try and give some context as to the where and when of the sample.

Sure, I have added some more examples in attachment.

Its the typelogo of a very small run "article" magazine, I believe they've only done 3 issues. You can only find their magazines in certain shops.

The mysterious typeface is used throughout their magazine, so I now find it hard to imagine that each title is customised from Galliard.

I'm gonna post this anyway... and tell me where it's wrong...

Linotype Sabon Next. Oh...

Sabon is nice, but its T and the R don't match the samples, and the two fonts I suggested don't appear to have a swash Q.

If it's a British publication, I'm guessing it's a UK foundry typeface; checking now....

Glyphmon's picture

Yes you're right, its a UK magazine I believe, thanks for helping!

Close (or not), but no cigar:

A few more that are almost there,
DTL VandenKeere by Frank Blokland (1994)

Van Dijck by Robin Nicholas (1935)

Custodia by Fred Smeijers

Glyphmon, I can't seem to find a match.

Given that the magazine is a biannual and appears to be rather exclusive, I suspect it was a commissioned typeface.

EDIT: Mystery solved--it's a bespoke typeface by Colophon Foundry (from the online portfolio of Rosy Tsai, art director for ARTICLE):
