In his #1 New York Times bestselling book, SeinLanguage, Jerry Seinfeld has captured on the page his views on topics ranging from Raisinettes to relationships, from childhood to cop shows, and from parents to power suits.
Posted here in response to a font ID query by Robert Green who revived the long-lost typeface used by the Doves Press, see Doves Type. He currently is –
trying to compile all the filmset & early digital fonts based on Morris / Doves’ interpretation of Jenson. This one looks like its taken William Morris’s lowercase serifs and put them on the uppercase, but on the wrong bits just for the lols
Unfortunately, I can’t contribute much beyond the name of the typeface. Eagle probably is a (very) late phototype design. It’s shown in Dan X. Solo’s Solotype Catalog of 4,147 Display Typefaces (Dover, 1992) in four weights of monolinear stroke width, with a very tall x-height. No designer or any other info is mentioned. I’m not aware of a digital version. Keep in mind that many of the names in the Solotype catalog are aliases. I don’t know if this is the case here, too. This Eagle has nothing to do with Morris Fuller Benton’s Eagle Bold from 1934 which was extended at Font Bureau into a full series from 1989 on.
