It was designed in the thirtees, but
Freehand 521 does it for me.

or something similar. I am trying to look for a 50's farm script or something relating to farms in the 50's.

Also, Monotype Script Bold is similar in feel, weight and color, if not exactly the same in design.

Good luck!

It's looks like Eclat by Doyald Young
published by Letraset.

I have no url but it shouldn't be that hard to find. check out the Fontek collection.

You are right Stephen. But it must be some kind of variation?

Teacher, you can't leave us hanging.
What's it called?

And yes, Eclat looks like the wide version of
Chuck's sample, (with some modifications).

Hey Chuck. Nice to see another Utahn here.
We are dominant on Typophile.

I imagine you plucked this sample from one
of Mr. Young's fine books. It's my
understanding that these are his own designs
and I know of no distributor for his work.

It sure is lovely. I'll reply later with
similar scripts, though I doubt anything
can match it.
