WELL, NOW…that’s disappointing. Not one guess on last week’s Whatzit. Was it really that difficult?
This g is in New Baskerville. Its telling characteristic is the open bottom bowl. The tail of the g doesn’t close on the center. New Baskerville isn’t an uncommon typeface and it’s surprising that no one recognized it.
Well, Ed’s not givin’ up on ya…or lettin’ up on ya, either.
So, here’s this week’s Whatzit. Yep…another g. So…what typeface is this?
HAVE AN IDEA for the Whatzit? Just send Ed a quick email at email@example.com and we’ll do what we can to stump others!
