Re: [BKARTS] Help with Font - One More

Hello all -
I read the discussion on identifying a font with interest, as I found a font I dearly like but do not know much about. I found it in mid 1930's (1934-1936 I think) Gutenbergs Jahresbuch. I have included a scan of it below. In particular I like the t's, the f's and the crossed 7's. Any suggestions as to name or family would be helpful. I don't hope that there is a digital version, but if you know of one similar, please let me know.

You will need to rescan the sample to fit their requirements, but if it exists, their system will identify it.

One can also use Identifont's font-finding tool (http://www.identifont.com/identify.html) and type in a range of characters to answer questions about -- this might be faster, and let you see possible alternatives.
