New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
It looks a lot like letterpress Fairfield, but with a couple of small differences.
They are from E.B. White's "One Man's Meat", published by Harper & Brothers, from 1938 to 1944.
I'm comparing the samples with this:
- The italic f is different from the Fairfield in Textism.
- The capital U is different from the Fairfield in Textism.
Perhaps the old letterpress Fairfield is simply a bit different from Adobe's digital version shown in Textism.
Perhaps it isn't Fairfield after all . . .
I'd appreciate some help in identifying this lovely old type.
