Complete Sumi-e Techniques book -- type ID needed

yoon395's picture

I'm looking to find out what typeface this might be: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/images/0870403613/ref=dp_image_0?ie=UTF...

Alternatively I'm looking for a typeface with somewhat of a calligraphic feel for a book relating to Japanese culture if anyone knows of something suitable.

Thanks!

Great, thanks!
Any thoughts on this one:

Looks a little bit 'sharper' for lack of more descriptive terms

Don’t know off-hand the typeface in the sample, but for alternatives, with different effects, you could look at these:
http://new.myfonts.com/search/hiroshige/
http://new.myfonts.com/search/baka/
http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/psyops/haru-nami/

Edit: Obviously, Akira knew it! :-)

The second one (Japanese Brush Painting Techniques)
looks like Palatino Italic

...may be a cut like Palatino BQ or Palatino Expert BQ is even closer
