Hi can anyone please help identify the attached font. I have tried all my font sample books with no luck. It is the font used throughout the uk newspaper the telegraph thanks John
Some Googling came up with this profile of Walter Tracy, who designed a couple of fonts for the Daily Telegraph. 'Telegraph Modern' and 'Telegraph Newface' are both mentioned, but not linked (not Linotype faces, and maybe not commercially available -- I haven't looked for them yet, but I will.)
Some other information I found made it sound as if Linotype Modern = Modern 880 = Telegraph Modern, but it is not identical to your sample. There are similarities, so I'd guess it is some variant of a Modern.
Thanks for your help. much appreciated. Yes I agree that this may be a varient that is not available commercially. John
