Today I am launching a weekly series of typeface identification competitions, entitled ‘What Face Wednesday’. I will announce the start of each competition via my Twitter feed at a random time each Wednesday. A different prize will be offered each week and this week’s prize is any one hand-printed letterpress greeting card (including free International p&p) from the selection on my Typoretum website.
Answers must be posted on this Blog, as a comment, and the first correct identification of the typeface will be the winner. Sorry, but I will not be able to accept answers submitted via Twitter or email. Good luck!
Congratulations to the winner of this week’s competition, Jens Jørgen Hansen, who correctly identified the typeface as Granby Inlined. This typeface was introduced by the Sheffield typefounders’ Stephenson & Blake in 1932.
