Hi Stumped with these fonts. Need to match for text pages and studio is shut. Thanks.

William Display and William Text (Typotheke) are mighty close

For “Bob Willis”, I think that Albra (Text) Light is an even better match.

Still looking for the rest.

Hi Gizzmo and Riccardo

Many thanks for replying. Riccardo I think you've nailed the Bob Willis one. Albra Light looks spot on. I think I still need the 'A Cricketer....' one though. Bob

It appears to be some cut of Caslon (as per Gizzmo’s suggestions), but the best match I can find would be an artificially emboldened Big Caslon.

Second best, not counting the |a|, possibly New Caslon.

Hi Riccardo

Yes the |a| is very distinctive. As you say it looks very much like an emboldened Big Caslon. I'll keep looking to see if there is a particular cut at this weight.

Many thanks for your help. Bob
