Font ID?

Can anyone identify the font for 'Lyons' please? I can't decide if it's an actual font or someone has touched up another one.

Once upon the time, it could have been Baskerville (mainly because of /y ball terminal tail).

Yes, it's one of the ones I looked at (among about a thousand others!) but I'm struggling with the top serifs on the /y and peculiar 'L'

I guess it would be very easy to modify it, mainly removing some serifs:
- remove /L top right serif and round angle
- rework inner transition between vertical and horizontal stem
- remove /y inner serifs and round angles
- remove /n arch inner serifs

Great job. I was more concerned with identifyng it though in case they want more types of artwork. Wish these people would ask their designers more questions!

Andy, FYI if it is an actual font it's probably illegitimate since virtually any Baskerville cannot be redistributed (and many -maybe most- of them can't even be modified "internally").

Thanks for the tip. I hope it turns out to be something I can use! I'm beginning to lean toward 'encouraging' them to use another...
