Looks hand drawn to me; the width, the squareness of the serifs, the whole constructed feel...
Look after Goodness & Truth

I have seen other words in it on his books
Bodoni Open, slightly stretched?
Edit: it's not an exact match (the A and the M are different), and the more I look at the sample the more I agree it may have been a hand-job - the peak of the A extends up way too far. Unless you absolutely need to match this sample I think you'd do better to use an existing font like Bodoni Open.
not the same, but see Smaragd (Gudrun Zapf von Hesse, Linotype)
Chevalier Open is wider but similar.
Also: FF Acanthus Open
I digitized that a few years ago for some design group or other, I can't remember who.
As the original artwork had been lost long ago, I was given a clothing tag which was so degraded, it looked like a 20th generation photocopy. I had to interpret this into something sharp. From this I made an upper case typeface with the logo built-in as 2 keystrokes.
I know the peak of the A extends up way too far, I couldn't see the logic of it myself, but the client knows best. So it wasn't a 'hand job' after all.
BTW - Hi Diederik, how you doin'
‘hand job’ ?
Nah, I am not going there :-)
Here I am, biting my lip for 29 hours or so, and then Chris says it! :^D
Let's just hope future 'hand jobs' aren't identified as such.
