It's so familiar, but I've spent far too long trying to identify it already.
Can anyone help?
Spire, Onyx and Skyline are all close but none are quite a match.
Also, Arsis and Niagara Solid.
This is 'Amati', originally released by Weber in 1951. It was digitized as 'Amossa' by NovelFonts. You can see it in the Jaspert "Encyclopaedia of Type Faces". I think I have a sample in the Serif Font ID Guide.

Here is the image showing the whole typeface that I have in the Serif Guide.
Nice ID, Mike. I'd never seen this unique typeface before. I've just GOT to get a copy of Jaspert.
Now to see if I can hunt up a copy of Amossa ...
Many thanks folks!
I've just realised why it looks so familiar - it reminds me of the typeface used on the packaging of Marlboro cigarettes.
Marlboro cigarettes actually uses a font similar to 'Pall Mall' from Red Rooster.
