Type ID Pop Quiz V2.0.1

This is how it works:

  • A portion of a glyph is published in the Type ID Pop Quiz.
  • Try to identify the glyph and the typeface. To win, you need to name at least:
    1. typeface
    2. weight
    3. character/glyph
  • Show off your knowledge by casually mentioning additional trivia, like who designed it, when and by whom was it (first) published, and other cool stuff to impress your fellow Typophiles with.
  • The winner produces a new challenge -- a portion of a glyph, black on white background, presented in a 288 x 288 pixel square, including a R204G000B00 1 pixel border.
  • The person who posts a challenge can't win the next game.

In case of any disputes, I will act as judge, jury and avenging angel of wrath.

Good luck everyone, and have fun. ;^)

With respectful thanks to the originator of this utterly useless but highly entertaining waste of time, the often imitated but never duplicated Cheshire Dave.


I'm going to occasionally reboot the Type ID Pop Quiz thread as it tends to become unwieldy after a while. Here's the new challenge. Have fun.

ohohoh lowercase k

No!? You think so? Really!? :^D

lowercase h?

Oops, in my efforts to try to be funny I was misleading everyone -- this is indeed a lowercase 'k'. Sorry for creating the confusion.

BTW Nice facial remix Josh. :^)

YEH! The Type ID Pop Quiz is finally back again.

I'm ready for the ramble. ß ^ j

It's an italic k?


I know it is offered at Veer. I can smell it.

Although the fact that you've been working on the next FontBook leads me to pause.

This has nothing to do with me working on the FontBook. :^D Besides, Stewf did Serif ; I did Sans, Slab and Blackletter.

But you don't deny the Veer connection. Interesting.

As much as I don't want a hint, I think we need one. I can see the rest of the character ... d'oh! Yves!

A hint? Already? Want me to shed some light?

BTW I must say your nose is misleading you unfortunately. ;^)

Gah! I looked at Stefan's site first and didn't see anything. I tried Psyops and got lazy. Just tried again. Luminance Normal by Stefan Hattenbach!

Was the "Want me to shed some light' so obvious? :^/ ;^)

Your turn.

Ahhhhh! Good one Yves |:^j

Congratulations Miss Tiffany

New rule -- you can't win two times in a row (I'd like to avoid these "games of ping pong" where basically just two people play).

Also, try not to make it too hard. It can be a challenge, but a tiny fragment of a curve is a bit over the top.

The biggest clue was that it was you, Yves, posting the image. I know you have a love of his work. I'll post an image soon.

Alrighty Then ...

A “y” or a “p” lower case.

Which one?

lc y

Might also be a lower case v but I think it's a lc y.

Jubilee RR is close but it's not him.

Italic lowercase y ?

(looks like something that Storm would do... but I'm too lazy to check it right now :^/)

You can't ask, you must tell ... :^P ... yes, it is a lowercase y

pff... whatever! :^P

Need another clue?

For me, yes : ^ [

Amazing clue!

:^D although you might think this typeface is just another sheep following a trend, you might be sorely mistaken.

Hmmmm, tough one... (I can't contend anyways, as I posted the last challenge).

Miss Tiffany has always good challenge :^)

This type designer's face(s) perpetually surround us.

Excellent, Mr. Harvey. Did my clues help at all? =^D Your turn.

Tiff, if I had checked the thread yesterday, 'sheep' and 'sorely' would have stood out as clues pointing to Mr. Gill. (i'm guessing the second word was inadvertent, ;) )

But Perpetua-lly is what I saw first.

here is the next one ... it might be a quick one considering the source.
(well if anyone wants to admit surfing Typophile on a Saturday night, hehe)

good luck.

Uppercase Q?


Yes. Nice job Forrest. :)

thank you. I'll post a new challenge soon.


Seems to be a caps “B”

you got it paul.
