    Actually I don't think its Egyptian Bold Extended because the middle part of the E is different. Could it be a different version of Egyptian?

    There are countless Egyptienne variations.

    So would it be safe to say its not Egyptian Bold Extended then? I just wouldn't want to buy the wrong font, Thanks again for the help! Thomas

    Yes, that would be wrong if you need an exact match. Finding the exact match, if I could find it at all, would take me hours as I don't know the real deformation of the letters in your sample and I don't really feel like that, sorry. If you only need to reproduce the image you'd better of redrawing it I think.

    I ended up re drawing it, It seems the original has alot of inconsistencies in the size of each letter. Thanks Again for your help.

    Hi,

    @LAvish:Actually I don't think its Egyptian Bold Extended because the middle part of the E is different. Could it be a different version of Egyptian?

    Egyptian is the old term for «Slab Serif». See:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slab_serif

    Your example is a Slab Serif according the Clarendon model and it`s no Clarendon.

    The typeface Cairo is a typical example but it`s condensed:

    The «Fette Egyptienne» from Dieter Steffmann is another good example:

    http://www.abstractfonts.com/font/13147

    Note: Both typefaces are tagged «serif» and not «slab serif». Searching for the tag «slab serif» will not work properly for Clarendon Model typefaces. :-(


    Bye Bye
