Mystery serif


I found these letters in an old .ai file – they were outlined, so I don't know what the original font was – I can't find the name/file anywhere.



You mean serif, right? Similar to Bell MT Italic maybe?

Thanks, I do mean serif! Sorry, edited that now. Bell MT has come up a few times elsewhere... but the 'N' and the 'w' give it away, it's not the right one.

It is, check here. The N is in the Alternate font.

No, in fact – on closer inspection, it's not the one; very similar though, so something based on Bell.


"So it is! Thanks very much indeed!"

It was Austin, Commercial Type.
