Need Help Identifying Serif

Hello friends,

I would appreciate some help in learning what typeface this is.

Thank you all in advance!

Chris

Please can someone identify this extremely high contrast Didone with rounded terminals on the capital S and G used in the Christie's magazine designed by Spin as can be seen here:

I have included some attachments here too...

Many thanks.

Hi Typophiles!

My initials are d, l, and s, and they are really hard to put together into a personal logo. Believe me! This is my seventh official attempt at constructing a cool identity. I sort of want to convey professionalism and perhaps invoke a little mythology (a little hydra/lochness monster comes otu of it) while at the same time having my initials (a) evolve into each other and (b) come together as a what some might call a typographical swash or like something you might find in Adobe's Wood Ornaments type.

I'd love your artistic opinions on it--I know it's not done yet, but I don't know what it needs exactly. It is coming off a little bit messy. I'd love to hear what you have to say so I can finally finish it! I'm attaching a larger version. Thanks again in advance!

Designing "S"

Hi, I am new to typophile but I do have an issue that has been killing me. I am designing a typeface almost ready to be screen printed. However, the letter "S" has been killing me! Any tips, tricks, or some sort of dark magic to conjure a good "S." Any sort of help would be neat-oh.

Spine

A spine is the integral part of the common s structure in Latin types and fonts. Spines range in form from a simple diagonal line to s-shaped (including part of the upper and lower bowls), with and without stressing. The spine of some letter types such as constructivist and geometric consists of two right-angled joints joined by a horizontal crossbar. The term is borrowed from anatomical nomenclature.
