Does anyone know what font this is?
Can you repost the image? I can't open the image you've posted. Anyone else?
Can you see this?
Can't help with the id though...
I think that's 'Modula' (not the Emigré font). Let's see if I can find it online somewhere.

So far I have confirmed in the 'Homage to the Alphabet' book that this is 'Modula Extra Bold'. I have also found that Opti Fonts had this under the name of Ogden, but I can't find it online. A lighter weight (bold?) was once distrbuted by NovelFonts under the name of Obbsidda.
That's all I have been able to find through my notes. Maybe Mike F. has more info on digital versions?
Here's one instance.
Yves, I didn't see a link to a font on that page. There was my sample of Obbsidda, which is no longer available anywhere, as far as I know.
Sorry for the confusion, I just wanted to show a more complete character set. I know of no digital version.
As a matter of fact, Mike ...
Other digital versions of Modula XB that I'm aware of are:
1) Kasse FLF from the defunct Casady & Greene folks. The download includes equivalents to Modula Light, Bold and XB (there was a medium weight to Modula too).
2) Modularity from Doug Olena/Keystrokes.
Neither matches the image exactly, but it's the image's characters that have been altered from Modula - especially the c and C - not the fonts.
Oh, and Castcraft likely still will sell you their version, but their customer service, er, lacks enthusiam, shall we say?
Mike, I knew you would know of sources if anyone did. Thanks for chiming in.
