Chancery italic font from Yale Law Library Collection book

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have looked everywhere (identifont, myfonts, Luc Devroye's encyclopedia, etc.) and used multiple font identification tools to find this beautiful chancery typeface but to no avail.

It is close to Poetica, Chicory, Arno Italic... but still different.

It is used on the attached poster.

I would be most grateful if someone could help me.

Thank you for your time.

It could be Poetica

Thank you for your reply Greg !

I initially thought it was Poetica but it's definitely not.

Who made that poster? When was that poster made? Where did you get the image from? … The more we know, the easier it is to solve such requests.

The exhibit dates from 2017, and the poster seems to have been created by the folks at The Grolier Club.

The rest of the type on the poster is Centaur, and the more calligraphic headline bears a resemblance to Centaur Italic, but I am not finding it anywhere.

Hello Ralf,

I don't know who made the poster (possibly Jerry Kelly from the Grolier Club). The exhibition lasted from September to November 2017. I got the image from flickr but it is also available on the Grolier Club website.

Hey Kevin;

Thank you for your contribution. Indeed, the headline italics are not Arrighi...

@Parangon -- Since you mentioned him, have you considered contacting Mr. Kelly and asking him about it?
