Blackletter-Type Font Identification


I was wondering if anyone could help us out on i.d'ing the masthead, blackletter-type font of this publication. I have no further information on the font, designers etc. Any help or close matches to this font would be greatly appreciated. I am a student who wants to use something similar in a project. (I am especially fond of the capitals, namely, the lovely 'P').

Many Thanks,

Faron G


There is another image...

That's quite clearly a beautiful, but custom, design. There are quite a few elaborately ornamented blackletter faces (which look nothing like this one) - google for ornamented blackletter. Incidentally, the newspaper name is called the Nameplate. The masthead is the list, usually, inside, of the newspaper's owners, publishers, editors, and principal staff members. - Herb

Also called "flag".
