Hi all members, can you help me identify the font used in this picture (the hollows of the hips) please! (I can't find any fonts that has letter p with short descender like that)

Thanks for your request. Unfortunately it doesn’t comply with our rules and therefore cannot be published yet. 

Problem of this topic:

  • The required information about the source of the font samples were not given or insufficient.

If you are still unsure about posting a proper font ID request, check out this FAQ page:

Thank you for reminding me about the forum rules, Admin. I would like to give you further informations. I found the font when I was watching a video of Chanel name "CHANEL N°5 - For the first time - Inside CHANEL" . It appears in the video twice, at 0:25-0:31 and 1:22. The pictures used that font resemble an old books but I think it is photoshoped. That's all I know about it!

It seems that there are variations in some characters (for example |h|), and not others. My impression is that they scanned an old book and manually composed the words they needed, rather than using a font.

If you aren’t interested in the distressed look, American Garamond could be an option.

For a metal printing look (but without variations, and slightly longer ascenders and descenders) there is Garamond Rough (also Pro).
