Some kind of wood type?


Can anyone comment on where this might be from? Is it indeed wood type?

Most likely woodtype with a backwards cut 'M'?

This appears to be William Caslon's Caslon Italian. [[http://moderntypography.com/Typedesign/Classics/CaslonItalian/index.html|Digitized]] by [[Paul Barnes]] of [[Commercial Type]], but that one is not available. See [[http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/matchandkerosene/slab-sheriff/|here]] and [[http://vllg.com/Village/Arbor|here]] for available digital interpretations. The latter departs more from the source.

frode frank seems to have it right, at least in terms of the origin. Do you think this was a wood version or metal? it certainly looks like it was carved.

The M does look weird, but it follows the rest of the design perfectly - the entire contrast is reversed.

Yeah, saw that in Frode's link — interesting.

Yet another candidate in the close-but-not-quite category: OK Corral by Michael Hagemann.
