The New York Sun

(x) Help identifying "The Sun's" typefaces? Circa 1897? - Caslon, Encore, Laureate, similar to Ionic {Mark S}

Hi everyone,

This is my first post and I hope it's in the right place. I am trying to identify the typefaces used in "The Sun" (NYC: 1835-196), the daily newspaper in which "Yes Virginia there is a Santa Claus" first appeared in 1897. I am specifically looking for the body and headlines....school project here at [[http://www.cca.edu|California College of the Arts]].

Here is an example a standard page, as preserved by Chronicling America:

An explanatory article of the "new" Sun's typography

And the wiki article about the paper:
