Help Please

Hello,
I am reading a copy of "Thinking with Type" by Ellen Lupton. It is the second edition (orange cover). The word "Type" is interesting in that the letter "y" is not quite fully connected. It looks like it may have originally been a "v", and a tail was attached. What is this interesting typeface?
Thanks
