Beautiful italics in the (previous) paperback edition of [The Design of Everyday Things].

Hi All!

I met this beautiful, condensed italic font (serif, but not very much) in my (previous) paperback edition of [The Design of Everyday Things] (wonderful book, BTW); but I cannot exactly identify the font.

New Release: Eskapade Roman

Forums: 

The experimental Eskapade fraktur by Alisa Nowak, received two additions to the family. This time, Alisa created two fonts of the old-style nature adapting a humanist structure with condensed proportions. Both, the roman and italic have strong links to the Fraktur providing for a balanced harmony in mixed text-settings. Please contact us for details, if you wish to upgrade to the full Eskapade family.

Hello all--
I've got an in-progress here that needs your eyes. It's based on a hastily designed logo for a paper sculpture artist that I thought had some potential as a full set of letters. It's a bit of a mash-up of different elements but here's the main points I want: display face, high contrast, flared serifs and abrupt wedge serifs, large x-height, and some other thin, swashy elements and unconventional forms are ok with me since I envision it being used at large sizes. I'd also like to make light and ultra weights too.
