Serif Typeface Used For R. Crumb Exhibition Poster

FrankTheDesigner's picture

Dear Type Geniuses! My apologies for the double post but I think I posted this in the wrong forum. I'm trying to identify this typeface used for a Robert Crumb exhibition in Paris last summer (image attached). I tried researching it on my own and the closest I came up with was Blackoak but it's still not quite what I had in mind. Your input is greatly appreciated!

It seems like a heavy Clarendon or Egyptian style, but I cannot find any with this M. The middle vertex does not touch the baseline. I searched MyFonts with every keyword I could think of, and I searched my own Serif Font ID Guide, but I didn't locate a match.

Either it is a font where the heavy weight M is not the same as the lighter weights in shape, or it is from an independent foundry that does not sell through MyFonts. I looked at Hoefler and House and neither had this either.

I'll be interested to see if this is a custom type.

Hmm, I saw Eames and thought it was a stencil style, and I never looked closer. That's it. Good work Gustavo.
