Gothic/Vampire-ish font with modified 's'

Hi all.
Unfortunately I only have one low-resolution sample of the font I'm trying to identify, and that sample contains a slightly modified letter. Thus I have a feeling that this will be a challenge. Here it is:

The letter 's' is modified a bit, I don't have the original. The word written is 'Veiskille', in case it was unclear.

As far as I know it was found on the web some time around 2000. Not much help there, I guess.

Any help would be appreciated.

All the best,

Usherwood-like serif, Adventures of Dr. Eszterhazy

I'm trying to figure out if this is a typeface, or hand-lettered, or modified from a typeface. It's a book cover issued in 1990.


It looks a fair bit like ITC Usherwood Bold to me.http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/itc/usherwood/std-bold/ but of course it has ligatures and alternates not available in the current digital version of that typeface. Did Usherwood ever have swash alternates? Is this a hand-lettered derivative, inspired by ITC Usherwood? Some other font with fancy swash alternates?
