Johnny Got His Gun (cover and text)

Jeff K's picture

Hey All,

Trying to determine the type used on the cover (hand drawn?) and inside (serif) of an early edition of Dalton Trumbo's Johnny Got His Gun (1939). Many many thanks!

I think the text is a Baskerville, based on the 'y' and the 'g' which seems to be barely closed.

The book title resembles Antman, which may be a modern revival of an old Deco style.
