That's a wonderful font. I've been helping out at Don Emblen's Clamshell
Santa Rosa, and discovered he had a case of it in 18-pt. It has all the
ligatures - things like the little semi-tilde over a vowel that indicates an
"n" is hidden.
Even the unused letterfaces look 'distressed', as they say in furniture
result is like a facsimile. I used it in a book I'm doing but had to have a
plate made of
it after reducing the text to 12-pt.....I checked the usual internet sources
& didn't find
anyone who had more of that font.
None of this answers your question about digital sources...but I'm still
in acquiring the metal type if anyone knows of a source...
Your description is great except this type was cast only in 24 point size!
Best wishes, Tom
