Good Evening all,

I wonder if you could help me identify the fonts or similar fonts on the image attached. I Believe the menu was created by Paula Scher.

Thanks for your help.

There are at least twelve different typefaces shown in the samples, plus the seven identified by name. You can probably locate a number of them by searching for Wood Type, Victorian, Latin and Tuscan on a site like myfonts.com. The “striped” typeface in the first example is Atlas; I believe that Harold Lohner has a version of it available.

Thanks for your help. Much appreciated.

HOMARDS VIVANTS/LIVE LOBSTERS: Monotype Engravers
POISSONS FRAIS/FRESH FISH: Post Office

Post Office seems to be a rip-off of Vineta.

And I don’t think that’s a match.

Agree Jan, thanks for correcting me and giving the official version name for Vineta. Definitely not matching for "FRESH FISH" but I still believe it's quite close (even matching) for "POISSONS FRAIS".

Indeed DPape, this "Appligraph AG Decor Condensed" looks pretty close to me.
Same vein, different name: Gold Rush
