Basingstoke is old fashioned typeface. inspired by old letterheads from the 19th century.

I saw this in a recently produced documentary photography book, being used to typeset quotes. It resembles handwriting in pen and ink, and is slightly blotchy in outline. I wonder if the spaced out characters are indicative to the font or whether they have been treated that way. The spacing makes it look modern, but the characters, especially the r and ascending/descending characters look old fashioned. Any clues?
