I’m curious to know what the main font here is. However, searching for “marvin” (as currently named here) doesn’t reveal anything similar, and What the Font doesn’t know either. Any better guesses? Thanks.
Dan, as it says on the typeface page when you click the sample, Marvin is a typeface from the phototype era during which this book was published. There is no proper digital version yet.
There aren’t any digital fonts that are quite like it, but you might dig Harry or ITC Busorama.
There is a free version called Marbold, by Thomas Harvey
Yes, I mentioned Marbold on the typeface page and used it for the sample, but with its bumpy curves, abrupt transitions and a limited character set (with scaled-down caps as lowercase), it is hardly an adequate digitization.
