Can anyone help me determine what typeface this is. The 'W' is very distinctive and I would really like to find out what it is.
P.S. It almost looks Gill Sans with a very strange 'w'. I found something similar called 'Documenta' but it is still no where near the same.
House Neutraface 2 might be a match. In the original Neutraface, there was an alternate W like this, but the E was different. Neutraface 2 has a normal E and R, so this could be the answer.

Thanks mike — Do you know where I can see or buy the face with that style of 'w'? I looked on Houseind but cant find it.
Raincheck on that Mike! I found it — Cheers for you help, Really appreciate it :)
Hey Mike do you have a copy of the font? that I could have?
Sorry, you need a license. That's the way it works.
That /S/ doesn't look like Gill nor Neutraface to me.
I think there's a decent chance that this /W/ is made from overlapping /V/s rather than being part of the original font.
Either that or it’s modified ITC Kabel.
Yes, that's possible, of course. Unfortunately these aren't the best letters for making a positive ID. I agree that the S in the sample seems a bit more symmetrical than those in Neutraface 2, so it could be almost any sans with a symmetrical S.
