Hi there -- The rough inspiration for our wedding theme is The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe (specifically chapter 11). I'd love to use the same typeface for our invites (and save-the-dates, and everything else) as was used in the books I had growing up, but have no idea where to find it. Paperback, published 1950, illustrations by Pauline Baynes. This has been a long shot and may not work out, but I thought I'd ask. Thanks for any help you can give.
Hi there, while I don’t know the exact typeface off the top of my noggin (and have totally lost track of my childhood copy of the book!) you can always try using ‘What the Font!’.
All you need to do is take a clear picture of the specific text and upload it to the website, where it will do its best to detect the name of the typeface! Good luck and congratulations on your big day :)
“Books are special, books are the way we talk to generations that have not turned up yet. The fact that we can actually, essentially communicate with the people in ancient Egypt, people in Rome and Greece, people in ancient Britain, people in New York in the 1920s who can communicate to us and change the way we think, and change the things that we believe.
