to me this looks like a modern serif (so i used that term), but im not really good in font classification.. the only thing i wanna know now is WHAT DAMN FONT IS THIS? :)

i tried whatthefont, looked through the text-serifs in bringhursts bible, looked through fontshop-catalogue, etc... its on my tongue, but my mind is blocked.. thanks!

No, you're right Yves. It's weak. Not The Foundry's best.

They are much better adaptors than inventors. In my mind most of their good stuff is not original but an interpretation like Monoline, Gridnik, or the Architype series. A lot of the "original" stuff came a year after something better in the same genre was released.
