(x) classified ads - Poynter Agate {Jay Fraser}

This one is driving me nuts. It’s really close to a lot of fonts, but not quite there. It’s from the classified section of a newspaper in Florida.

I hope I’m not missing something obvious. It doesn’t match anything I have, and Identifont didn’t lead me to the right one, either. Thanks!

Waitasecond … Font Bureau’s Poynter Agate?

I can’t tell from their sample in their book, but it looks really close.

(OK, so I forgot I had their catalog…)

I’m pretty sure that’s it.

Poynter Agate is a “call for pricing” font, so I’m guessing Font Bureau doesn’t publish a full sample so as to keep it out of the hands of dirty, stinkin’ font pirates.

BTW, Sept 19th is International Talk Like A Pirate Day. Pass it on, Mateys!

Jay it wouldn’t suprise me that its a Font Bureau face, they pride themselfs that they design fonts for newspapers and publications, Dan
