Please? I really have no idea what it is, and it seems slightly off…

Quick take...
the "M" is a diffent face and is more than likely a "W" in real life.

Norbert: This thought process is derived because of the beginning and ending strokes not being parallel to the baseline, yet the spurs on it are, correct?

it looks like it's condensed by the designer/program.

I'm quite surprised nobody recognised this one -- Zuzana Licko's classic Triplex.

Yves—of course—thanks! I am no fan of Triplex, but I do like the italic…

And it has been squished. Sigh. Some people have absolutely no respect / clue.

John Downer's italic is the best thing -- some even go as far as to say "the only good thing" -- about Triplex. No disrespect to Zuzana -- she earned an unlimited number of bonus points with me, re: her influence on digital type design and the importance of Emigre.
