Berthold Wolpe Sylvia Plath Ariel Book Cover

I think I posted this to the wrong place earlier. Does anyone know what font this is based on or anything similar? Aplogies for confusion, Thank you


This was a fairly common hand-lettering style on British books at this time. Most British lettering books from this era, such as Cecil Wade's, have hand-drawn adaptions of Gill Sans as the only model for sans serif lettering. Having said that, I doubt Wolpe would have needed any reference material to do this.

Thanks for the help guys. Just looking at Cecil Wade's work now. Thanks again
