There's something familiar about that odd 'g' and the sort of spiky serifs, but I could not find this in my Serif Guide. I'm not sure where I saw this before, but it will bug me now.

i guess sometimes it'd be easier to just ask the designer, but then i imagine myself getting a mail like this. i'd reply nicely, but still not know what to think of it.

so i asked him and it's KUMLIEN TEXT by Torbjörn Olsson, a digitalization of Kumlien Antikva by Akke Kumlien (Klingspor, 1943). I was searching the net, but couldn't find it for sale anywhere ...
