Babel

Hi,

I´m making a book based on the short story "library of Babel" by Jorge Luis Borge as a school assignment. (studying graphic design.)

I´m about to decide on a font.
In the story Borge describes the font used in all the books in the library:

"To perceive the distance between the divine and the human, it is enough to compare these crude wavering symbols which my fallible hand scrawls on the cover of a book, with the organic letters inside: punctual, delicate, perfectly black, inimitably symmetrical. "

Just by reading this description, what would you say the font could be?
