IDENTIFONT: IDENTIFYING MY PARTNERS TYPEFACE

Using Identifont, and the print out of uppercase and lowercase letterforms which my partner had given me, from the previous task completed during the session. I attempted to identify the font without any prior information as to the name of the font or original source.



You can see the anatomy which has been highlighted on this photocopy, which helped me answer questions on Identifont.com. I used 'fonts by appearance' to help identify the typeface, and it came up perfectly as shown below.
