Type ID Pop Quiz V3
0

This is how it works:

  • A portion of a glyph is published in the Type ID Pop Quiz.
  • Try to identify the glyph and the typeface. To win, you need to name at least:
    1. typeface
    2. weight
    3. character/glyph
  • Show off your knowledge by casually mentioning additional trivia, like who designed it, when and by whom was it (first) published, and other cool stuff to impress your fellow Typophiles with.
  • The winner produces a new challenge -- a portion of a glyph, black on white background, presented in a 400 x 400 pixel square.
  • The person who posts a challenge can't win the next game.

Good luck everyone, and have fun. ;^)
With respectful thanks to the originator of this utterly useless but highly entertaining waste of time, the often imitated but never duplicated Cheshire Dave, and Bald Condensed.

I'd say by now we can declare the poster of the last image as the winner and move on.

That could be the case for the entry level (http://typophile.com/entry_level) or even the intermediate (http://typophile.com/intermediate_level?page=3), but if you had bothered to actually follow my link, you could have taken part and “won”, so you could have posted your crop.
Actually, you still can: http://typophile.com/expert_level?page=8#comment-518045

Nooo, he can't at the moment, I won this morning and still don't have a new glyph to run. ;) But yeah, one competition is enough I think, especially an active one. :)

Hmm. It isn't Prima Sans, and it isn't Woolworth...

nor is it Verdana.

5star is incorrect.

Quadibloc is correct, but he hasn't won.
