custom lettering based on very old document

redstart's picture

The URL here displays a custom restaurant sign based
on an old municipal document, perhaps as much as 200
years old. I wouldn't think there exists a font today
to match, but is there any similar font that I might
use for the restaurant's website?

I note the serifs on the lowercase l, v, a, and d,
and the top serif on the uppercase C.

Are you looking for the Type ID forum by chance? It is at http://typophile.com/forum/29

(If a host sees this, they might move it [and delete my message]). Otherwise you might want to repost there. Traffic in the education forum is quite light.

Thanks; I'll repost. My apologies: senior moment there. Mike
