can someone please help me figure out a font that is close to the style of "almanac" in the image above?
Sorry, no Adobe Illustrator in 1897: it's hand-drawn...
You could get the look with Letterhead Fonts' Billhead, using the 1900 set for the small caps and 1910 for the caps. Coffee Bin's Letterhead is based on similar source material. Check out their other offerings.
Also, in future use the Type ID forum for requests like this. You might have got some more suggestions.
thanks so much Justin_Ch, they are perfect! thanks for the suggestion where to post, i am new to this site :)
