    A series of stamps designed by Derek Birdsall in 2004 for the 250th Anniversary of the Royal Society of Arts. The only typeface used here that isn’t quintessentially British is Typo Upright, a 1905 American Type Founders revival of French script styles.

      The typewritten text on the 43p value is probably just that — made with an actual typewriter. As far as fonts go, FF Elementa comes pretty close.
