New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Don't know if this is the right board to be posting this – it isn't strictly a 'Type ID' question, but others seem to have started similar topics here so I guess I'm in the clear.
I'm working on a book cover which takes (adapts, really) its title from an old, pulpy/poorly printed boys adventure book called "Tom in the Andamans".
I'm looking to set the title for the book in a similar face, but it looks to be a hand-lettered job.
So could anyone suggest equivalents or near-matches for the type in the attached sample? I'm more concerned with the parts of the title in caps, less so the italics. The off-centre O and swash on the S are of particular interest.
A little worried that not much like this will have been digitised to be honest, but it's worth a try...
