Elegant Caps- Font for (modern) Regency Novel


Trying to identify this font for a client. It looks close to Garton . . . but not exactly right. Any ideas appreciated!


Probably not for sale to the public, if it is actually a font and not just lettering. Used in Shana Galen's Jewels of the Ton romance series. Three so far:

The terminals are sometimes called foxtails and are found in fonts such as Droid Serif http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/ascender/droid-serif-pro/.
Note the variation in some of the letters from book to book.
The wavy cross bar on the E and H is usually called a tilde and is found in various fonts as discussed in http://typophile.com/node/110669

Hi, Don-- Thanks for taking the time to respond. Shana is my client. She's asked the publisher for the font name (that was our first stop), but hasn't heard back so I was trying to find the font name (or something closer) so I could get some materials created for her sooner vs. later. If anyone else has ideas of something closer than what I've come up with (Garton), I'd appreciate it. Thanks! -L

You're welcome Laron. It's unfortunate that Shana's publisher is not being responsive. It seems to me that although the three covers show some variation in letter-forms they provide enough information to make a font. You can find many suggestions as to how to make swashed letters appropriate to this style in Mark Simonson's Bookmania http://www.identifont.com/show?2I31 and Laura Worthington's Samantha Upright http://www.identifont.com/show?2GDC, both of which offer many alternates.
