Serif typeface with diamonds

Tomek Peszor's picture

Some time ago in a book store I saw a very charismatic,
but traditional serif typeface.

It used diamond shaped dots.
Semicolon also used diamond instead of a dot.
There was a lot of ligatures used also.

Unfortunately, that's all I can recall.

Which font it might be?

TIA

Hmm… that's not a terrible lot of information ;-)
Maybe Fedra Serif? (A or B)

Yes, terrible ;)
Just browsed the books and now I just do not remember.

That was not Fedra.
Thank you.

Baker Signet?

Or browse these fonts here

None of them.

Seems that Baker Signet does not have ligatures.

I think it was just custom modified, newer version of Goudy Oldstyle (question marks were different).

Thank you.

Could be Jenson or related to it

Adobe Jenson Pro has a pretty decent selection of ligatures.

Could be many things in the Venetian style or Venetian vein.

Does Warnock have diamond dots?

paulstonier - you are the man :)
Indeed, it was one of Adobe Jenson Pro.

Thank you.

Warnock does have diamond dots. So do the following (a partial list of serifs browsed at MyFonts): FB Spira, Centaur, Iowan Old Style, Andralis ND, LTC Deepdene, Goudy Oldstyle, LTC Metropolitan, Benicia (Parkinson), Bertham Pro, P22 Mai, LTC Hadriano, Caxton, RTF Cotillion and Priori Serif.

All you have to do is set a sample of type with various glyphs involving dots and then scroll away with 'serif' as the search term.
