Please help me identify this font from a romanian book dated 1913.
Thank you very much!
Sorry... After I clicked "save" I saw that this wasn't the place in which to post font ID requests. If an admin can move it to wherever allowed... Thank you!
That is an unusual face and probably would make a nice revival if enough resource material is available. I do believe it is hand-set rather than by machine.
I looked through my foreign foundry specimens (French and British) but cannot locate it, nor in the US foundries either. I'm uncertain as to where a Romanian book publisher of that era would go for type, perhaps a Russian foundry. Unfortunately I cannot find a Russian foundry specimen book.
If you do identify it, please post the name here for our information. In the meantime I will keep it on my list of to-be-identifieds.
You might contact František Storm. The face bears some resemblance to the Tusar that he offers. (It isn't the same face, it just has some of that flavor.)
