Unique lowercase "y" with KanzleiLight

Recommended Posts


Can anyone identify the font used for the lowercase "y" character in the chapter titles of the current Pearl Games rulebook for Troyes (found here)? Examples are the word "Gameplay" on page 4 and "Activity Cards" on page 9. The PDF properties suggest the font used is KanzleiLight and that is a 99% match, but that font's lowercase "y" is more suggestive of a latin lowercase "n".

I have provided a comparison of the font (blue on white background) and rulebook (brown on striped background).

Bonus credit if you can identify the "y" used in the logo as that is slightly different from either of the above and is actually the preferred form. But I suspect this is a hand-drawn logo as there are several other differences from KanzleiLight.

Which is a normal traditional blackletter shape. 

I guess the other example is just using a tweaked version of the same font to make it more legible.
