Default "Brooks Caslon Brilliant and Chiswell"

Hello all,

First of all, greetings from Yaddo, a lovely artist community in Saratoga Springs. The weather is beautiful.

Second of all -- I have been contacted with the following question, and knew this was the right place to go to find its answer:


Hello Mr. Rakowski,

I am looking for two rare fonts and I was wondering whether you might be able to help me.

We are organizing an exhibition of the painter James Brooks, and while he was studying to become a painter he worked as a professional letterer.

We thought it would be nice to print the brochure in his typeface but cannot find it anywhere.

Do you have any leads?

Many thanks for your help,

Victoria Scott

I am slightly smarter than I look (look at the picture -- how could I not be?), but I don't have any idea how to be of help to Ms. Scott -- except to ask here, of course. Any ideas?

David Rakowski
