Howdy people - got one for the serif obsessed among you. Perpetua was as far as I got, but the R is all wrong. Any clues?
Thanks - Chris
What's the source? Are you sure it's a typeface?
Hi Stephen - I'm working on titles for a TV programme, the source supplied some graphics but only rendered type. Fairly certain it's a typeface, the way the bowl curves up into the 'R' is really familiar. I'll attach some more letters but they're pretty shabby quality...
Berling with the sharps eliminated by the 3D technique?
Edit: Er, no ... never mind.
Looks like Dwiggins to me, but no matches.
Thanks Mike, Stephen - I've had a good dig too but haven't managed to unearth this one - the 'R' should be the key, I've not seen an R like it:
It's a lettering style that isn't completely unique. Serlio has one, for instance.
Thanks Stephen - Serlio isn't actually a bad match, just a bit too floral ;-) Definitely in the right area though. I'm starting to think it might be an obscure, early Garamond. Here's the last tiny letters I can extract, the four-pronged W and U with a tail is useful I think.
Still looks hand lettered or inscripted to me.
