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”).

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

The version I have in my library is from Bitstream.

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

Nope, not Perpetua, but somewhat similar.

There was no bold or bold italic with this design. Any suggestions for bold/bold italic?

Are you talking about Emerson?

Emerson has been digitized under that name and as Spiral, but only in Roman, Italic, and Small Caps weights (Spiral) plus Display Roman and Display Italic (Emerson).

If you need Bold and Bold Italic, I’d pick a different face. Sabon has similar bones, but not the same details.

Right, that's my question: what other face in bold/bold italic would be suitable?
