    Hi Margaret, welcome to the forum.

    You've linked us to an image on your desktop, that won't work. Try attaching it instead. You can learn how to do this here in our FAQ If that doesn't work try hosting it at Imageshack.


    Edit: Nevermind, it looks like you figured it out.

        Try here: http://www.identifont.com/

        It asks you a series of questions about characteristics of the font, and comes up with matches.

        I tried it, and it didn't match your sample, but perhaps you have access to more characters in your sample than you posted. In particular the capital Q and the capital W.

        I can do a little bit more looking on Tuesday when I get back to work (that's where my font book lives), but you might have better luck in the meantime if you have more in your sample.

            Close PD, but the lowercase y doesn't match at all. That's a real characteristic on this font, methinks.

            Actually, Nicholas Cochin came close on the lowercase y, but the g didn't have the open end on the left. Plus the ascender to x-height ratio was nowhere close.

              Can also try What the Font.

                On the sample I can't see if the serif's are square or have a filet between the leg and the bar. Neither can Whatthefont apparently cuz it gave me both.

                The person needs to get a flatter sample to run through either identifier. Part of the problem is the bloating.

                It sure is an oddball. I don't recognize that y for anything. Freeware?

                  Or possibly even a system font of some sort. That's why I wish I had my font book here.

                  Actually, Nicholas Cochin has that kind of lowercase y, but as I said, the ascenders are way taller in proportion to the x-height.

                  What's killing me is I feel like I've seen this font before, but every name I've typed into myfonts is not even close.

                  I'd go looking for the lowercase y and the lowercase g for sure, they seem really unique.

                    whatever it is, it's beautiful.

                      Yup, I agree EC. That's why I want to identify it, I want to use it myself if I've already got it!

                        I thought it might be an interpretation of a Rudolph Koch Font, with the trademark open double storey 'g'.

                            yup, yaruski, we know about that one (read the previous posts, we all went there first).

                            Identifont is also good.

                            Now, you crazy Russian you, what's the font in the sample?

                                I used illustrator to draw the hitch. I used the pen tool, shape builder, blob brush, as well as other tools.

                                Thank you for the critique! Is it the cursif font that's a bit much, or all of it?
