Edit: Sorry... Double post! Btw, I meant the italic y of course!
It is not italic. It is not Serapion. However, it is indeed a y.

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?
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.
Would Monodon from Cape Arcona be considered a
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?
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.
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!
My guess: Costa Extra Bold from Porchez Typofonderie. cheers, Dana
At work... will post before the afternoon (here) is over (within two hours). cheers, Dana
There may be a hindrance to my ability to upload images from work (firewall?), but here
Yes... upper case R
O.K... in an attempt to prevent the death of the quiz, a small hint: Scandinavian designer; U.S.A. distributor.
I don't know of a font by that name...
Damn... made it too easy! The face is Palaestra... distributed by PsyOps, designed by Lars Bergquist. Good work B.J! (Remember next time: just because you are unfamiliar with a word, Dana, that doesn
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.

Delphin I Alternative
Chesh, you nailed it. nice job. you are now on the clock.
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, Dana
Isn't that Michael Harvey?
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.
I'm leaving Sunday for nine days of C
No, you're waaay off. Let me know if you want hints, I'd hate to spoil the thrill of the hunt for anyone.
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.
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.
kinda reminds me of alias type's plunderkind, but that one is too smooth. hmmmm...
i meant 'progress' by alias type.
Clue Two: The designer of the typeface was spotted at Typecon SF, handing out small limited edition catalogues of his work.
