Text face with distinctive lowercase g and t

Gary Long's picture

Thought Identifont would solve this, but couldn't find anything. The lowercase g, with its two spurs on the right, and lowercase t with bottom serif instead of hook, are very distinctive. Sample is scanned from dust jacket of a book published 2004.

At first I thought it might be an Emigre font, but no match so far....

Gary, the name of the book (it is by Rick Gekoski, yes?) and its publisher might be important clues in narrowing down the tyepface....

How about: T-26/Indispose-Light
I cannot find specific link for this one however.

Excellent sleuthing, Dick.

I can't find a commercial vendor for the typeface either...

...but it has been discussed here before:

You've nailed it. Thanks! For certain purposes I think it's quite effective. Too bad not available commercially now. Obviously it still was in 2004, when Carroll & Graf Publishers put out Nabokov's Butterfly, by Rick Gekoksi (you had that right too).
