First I tried looking at chanceries, but they yielded nothing. I was hoping PsyOps would show something, but I didn't find anything there either. I'm kind of stumped. Maybe we'll receive a good hint.

Bottom of the lowercase z from Comenius Italic?

Fabio Augusto's picture

Sorry Nathan, this is
not part of Comenius!

Fabio Augusto's picture

Hint? Ok!
This type was launched
by one "Nordic" foundrie!

Fabio, how about a little hint? For example, can the font be found on MyFonts? That at least narrows the field a little.

cheshiredave's picture

Cross-post! OK, Fabio, you can ignore the request I just made. Thanks for the hint.

And I searched the Fountain catalogue, to similar ends. I thought that might have been why we haven't heard anything from Peter in the last couple of days...

Cheshire, you passed far ;D
Stephen, you arrived well close!

doves italic z? it's close, but... any hints in the near future?

Isaac's picture

it could be ludovico italic z, but i can't see the entire glyph. blast.

Looks like one of Lars Bergquist's italic z's but I can't seem to find the right one.

Lower case z by Doves Pro italic by Torbj

peterbruhn's picture

no strike that - it's not Doves!

This one is driving me crazy. I've gone through all of Lars known faces, I've searched through dozens of specimen books. The thought of this z consumed my
whole weekend. Ahhrg!!

Isaac's picture

we need more hints asseblief. or i just need more leads from other people.
waht a hyena i am.

I know Stephen already looked - but could it be Frank Luin's Humana? uc Z?

peterbruhn's picture

or MiramarItalic?

kentlew's picture

Humana?
I don't think so. The terminal doesn't curl in enough and the transition doesn't have enough contrast.

MiramarItalic
The terminal here curls too much. Plus the connection to the diagonal stem is a straight one in the quiz sample, not notched like Miramar.

Fabio Augusto's picture

A tip to close: Is one
Swedish foundrie! But, no
Omnibus or Olson Fonts...
This foundrie launched
only one type !

Good LOOK ;D

Fabio Augusto's picture

YEAHHHHHHH!!!


Nathan Matteson, you
this absolutely CERTAIN!

Congratulations!

matteson's picture

Thanks Fabio. I'm in a meeting right now - shouldn't be on Typophile ;-) - but I'll post an ID in a little bit.

Stephen Coles's picture

I just search Franko Luin's entire catalog much to the
chagrin of my employer and to no avail!

Stephen Coles's picture

It's not one of Olsson's either.
