      Hi, I have a question. I can not find the exact same version of Albertus used as in the above book cover. The almond-like shape of the inside of ‘O’s is unique and not available in the versions of Albertus I found on internet. “Albertus extra bold” is the only one I could found with almond-shaped inside ‘O’s, but the ‘F’ and ‘T’ are thick and short on this version when compared to the ones the cover of For The Union Dead. Is it possible to find the exact same version as the one on the cover?

      The bold style of Bitstream’s Flareserif 821 brings you close to the pre-digital version used here.
