Edit: Sorry... Double post!

Btw, I meant the italic y of course!

Grant Hutchinson's picture

It is not italic.
It is not Serapion.

However, it is indeed a y.

Wow......

Grant Hutchinson's picture

Sorry for the delay in verification. I took the entire weekend off.

Franz nailed it. Onward...

Oh, bad timing.. I'm leaving for Manhattan tomorrow and will be away for three weeks. :-(

Quick lame trivia question instead, whoever answers it first shall have the distinct honour of posting the new type id challenge:

Which type designer is known for naming his creations after famous jazz musicians and titles?

franz's picture

Indeed! I was hoping it would be easy. :-) Take it away, Yves!

"G" or perhaps "&"?

Huh, not a Lineto face. That was kind of a shock, actually.

Grant H?

cheshiredave's picture

If I recall correctly, Grant was handing out another person's catalogue, namely Alejandro's Sudtipos specimen book. Now I'm thinking of BJ Harvey, though I don't have his book handy to scan through. Is it Defcon 2?

beejay's picture

could it be? I thought it looked familiar!

ROFL!

no ... I only have a few typefaces out there right now, anyway.

ROFL!

whoever it is, I don't think I got one of the catalogs. :-)

Grant Hutchinson's picture

Nice ID Tiff. I was just happy to be mentioned in the same thread.

I know! I know! R!

There's just no fooling you Chesh.

Fear my awesome skills!

O.K... in an attempt to prevent the death of the quiz, a small hint: Scandinavian designer; U.S.A. distributor.

Palestra ....

beejay's picture

I don't know of a font by that name... :-(

dana's picture

Damn... made it too easy! The face is Palaestra... distributed by PsyOps, designed by Lars Bergquist. Good work B.J!

I have just remembered that Typophile protocol dictates that a link to the typeface be provided;
Palaestra

a dubious ID, considering I didn't actually
find the face ... but to keep things going,
I'll post something shortly.

beejay's picture

Chesh, you nailed it.

nice job.

you are now on the clock.

cheshiredave's picture

What's funny to me is that it looked like what I remembered as Delphin, but then it wasn't a match. Just to see, I looked to see if there were alternates, which I'd never known about before. I guess there's definitely a family resemblance.

Here's the next:

Could this be a ligature?

cheers,

cheshiredave's picture

Nope, sorry.

Bald Condensed's picture

First sleep. It's very late here and I've got a tough day of work
and a rehearsal tomorrow. I'll try to find a good challenge. :-)

What about this?

Uppercase G indeed.

No, you're waaay off. :-) Let me know if you want hints, I'd hate
to spoil the thrill of the hunt for anyone.

Bald Condensed's picture

Okido people, I'm off to France in 7 hours. Stephen will take
over from here on. Rattle his cage if you want some clues. :-)

Stephen Coles's picture

I guess it's time for a clue:

The designer of the typeface publishes his work through 3
different vendors: a small, a medium sized and a big one.

Miss Tiffany's picture

kinda reminds me of alias type's plunderkind, but that one is too smooth. hmmmm...

Miss Tiffany's picture

i meant 'progress' by alias type.

Stephen Coles's picture

Clue Two:

The designer of the typeface was spotted at Typecon SF,
handing out small limited edition catalogues of his work.
