    Nope, not Perpetua, but somewhat similar.

    answered Penguin Island font

    It looks like Perpetua in the text itself. The U has a side stem.

    The version I have in my library is from Bitstream.

    Ralf your exactly correct - Lucian was designed by Lucian Bernhard in 1932 and originally released by Bauer.
  8. Ralf Herrmann

    answered Penguin Island font

    Well, Lucian is probably correct. It can’t be from Bitstream of course, since the company didn’t exist back then. The letterpress fonts were originally released by Bauer (“Bauersche Gießerei”).

    I suspect it's: "Lucian Std Roman" from Bitstream https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/bitstream/lucian/
  10. I saw this book today and wondered what the type-face is. The book from 1947, and the type-face does not look familiar at all. https://www.ebay.com/itm/PENGUIN-ISLAND-by-Anatole-France-Limited-Editions-Club-991-1500-VG-signed-/113399907767?oid=132802351481

    Thank you sir. You saved me quite a bit of time. I thought Clearface at first but I didn't have ITC Clearface.

    The original logotype was designed by someone else at least 20 odd years ago. I was asked to identify the typeface and was able to recall it as Le Griffe. This pleased me a lot since I had used it via a sheet of Letraset rub-down transfer in silver colour letters.

    One option is Castledown which seems to have been designed for use in schools.

    Hi honourable administrators and members, I make this post to learn from your experiences and opinions. In my town, we often use CURSIVE Font to make reading and writing test for children. Have you experience children's reading with CURSIVE Font or other fonts similar or not to CURSIVE? What version of CURSIVE Font do you recommend for children? What others Font do you recommend to make writing and specially reading test easy for them? Thank you in advance and looking forward to your comments.
