That's some beautiful type in that example above. Do you happen to know what face it is?

Richard

Not sure but I'll check to see if it's mentioned in the publication tonight.

Beth, I checked but it's not mentioned. However, funny thing, I'm reading the booklet from the Edward Wright Exhibition...

...and as I was reading it occured to me that the text is set in the same typeface as the one used on the Penguin. Walbaum in fact. So there you go.

I'm so glad you were able to find out what it was, I'm going to buy it from Linotype for a business card I'm doing. It's gorgeous!
