I am doing some research on the physical characteristics of a particular book - its margins, construction and binding, covers, typography... I got into a type identification forum and I was told that the typeface used throughout the main text was Sezieme, a modern recreation of Série 16 - a typeface that was abundantly used in the early 20th century.
I wonder if there is any way to look at that font's type specimen, just so I be able to compare the two faces properly.
Also, is there any serious site where type identification is currently taking place? I try Whathefont sometimes but I get the feeling they lack true, hard-earned expertise.
Thank you for reading this. I hope to hear from you!
