Font(s) that come close to original CARLTON Cannes lettering

Recommended Posts


Happy 2023!
I'm looking for a font or fonts with typeforms that are similar to the ones in the hand-chiseled lettering in the image. Condensed, wedge serif, C with just a serif at the top, low crossbar A and R. The LTON part is more commonly found in existing fonts. I have found revival fonts such as Enge Journal Antiqua and Schmale Mediaeval to have some of these characteristics, but wondering if anything else comes closer?

It might be a bit overkill, but I tried DeepVecFont to synthetize missing glyphs from existing few, and it works reasonable well. Just to let you know it's an option. You can convert CARLTON to SVG glyphs, and use them as an input. You can also pick some fitting few from Margherita  @Riccardo Sartori suggested, and include them to generate lower case.
