This is very similar to Beaumarchais, but either something else or scaled and tweaked in a vector drawing app.
This one is called Columbus in Rookledge's International typefinder (modified serif, 586, page 234)
Any idea where to get it? When I do a search for font and Columbus on Google I get faces from ITC, Linotype, and Monotype that look nothing like it.
Yes, several names: Columbus (QBF), Beaumarchais (Scriptorium), Deneane (Buyfonts).
The digitised versions aren't as heavy as your sample though and as you say there are differences.
OK, I've managed to download Deneane and it will probably work with minor tweaking. Thanks all.
