Some people might know, most won't, but the website of the Rijksmuseum, the Netherlands had an overhaul. Most fancy about this is the overview of their archive, which includes a lot of high-resolution type and lettering material. It is a bit of a search, but there are some real gems to be found and is perfect for lazy browsing on a lazy sunday.

Next to this, I wonder if some people might know of the origin of this type:

It's used by Johannes Enschedé around 1760 as a companion sheet to an etching.

A link to the larger page:

Does anybody know what typeface (or something similar) is used for the "yp" in the new logo for Yellowpages?

Thanks for the help!
