Slab Serif with Ball Terminals

I've tried inserting and attaching my image every way possible but keep getting an error although I am following the guidelines in every possible way. Now going about inserting the image another way . . .

This is a label from a bottle of room spray that has been hanging out in a drawer for years now. The packaging has since been updated. Thanks!

Awww, Man!! I wish it were a cleaner version of American Typewriter. Like an extra-light, wide version of clarendon.

How wide? Seen Parry?

Thanks guys! I think I like Parry and Suomi Slab Serif best . . . just wish there was a wider version similar to inlove but with serif qualities of the former.

I like to use inlove as a display font in all lower-case letters without any of the funky, slanted characters. I'm pretty sure this is the font istockphoto has been using for some time now, right?

So maybe one of you should create a suomi slab serif/inlove font combo . . . something simple to use as display text. . . . I would buy it.

Would you pay me to make it?

InLove is closer to some Lubalin Graph to me, adding the slanted letters concept from "Lubalin Graph Sans" Avant-Garde. For istockphoto, don't think it's InLove, more probably RNS Camelia, which is really close to... Lubalin Graph.
You might also like Monroe, (overused and clearly not my cup of tea) Museo Slab, St Marie and Adelle.
