Looks like somebody made an (unauthorised?) Schoolbook version of Matthew Carter's ITC Galliard. What's with that upside down uppercase 'S'?

Yves, you beat me to it. That was my conclusion too.

The lower case s is upside down too, by the way.

If you like classic serif faces with a single-storey lc 'a', here's two alternatives --

Bembo Schoolbook | Plantin Schoolbook

What a bizarre remix. Nice find, manuk. Is this from Beckmans school in Stockholm?

Yes Stephen, it's from Beckmans school. Probably a corporate.

Fair enough, but why the upside-down Ss? This makes me question the legitimacy of the design.

I'm sure it was a conscious decision. Irreverant, postmod!
