Reynolds Stone engraving font

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm looking for help to identify a typeface originally used by Reynolds Stone, I believe. Help much appreciated!

Pretty sure he didn’t use a typeface. He just carved it.

You're absolutely right. I didn't make myself clear, my apologies.

I'm looking for a typeface that resembles it as much as possible. It looks like an ancient Roman engravement lettering and one can find some examples on the web so I believe there's a font that matches it. "Slim" S, and J not going below the baseline are pretty characteristic. Only capital letters.

The most similar would probably be Linotype’s Minerva [1, 2], alas not available in digital form.

It also reminds me of the still unidentified typeface used for the Phantom Thread movie poster.
