‘What Face Wednesday’ No.6

Welcome to the sixth ‘What Face Wednesday’ metal typeface identification competition! This week’s prize is a choice of any two hand-printed letterpress greeting cards (including free International p&p) from the selection on my Typoretum website.

All correct answers will be placed in a hat and one winner will be randomly drawn. To enter the prize draw, all you need to do is identify the typeface shown below and email your answer to me. If you are also able to name the typefoundry that still casts this typeface, I’d be very impressed!

Answers must be received by 6 o’clock (GMT) on Wednesday 27th May. Good luck!

Congratulations to the winner of this week’s competition, Toby Attwell, who correctly identified the typeface as Solemnis. This typeface was designed by Günter Gerhard Lange in 1954 for Berthold. It is still cast, in 16 point, by the Dale Guild Type Foundry in the US.
