I only have the British editions of the books, so it's these fonts I'm interested. On the front cover, the book title seems to be in Pablo Let, while the rest of the text (e.g. "A Series of Unfortunate Events") seems similar to Caslon Antique - but not identical (look at the "U" and the "f"). Has anyone found a closer match than Caslon Antique, or is there some sort of text effect used, or is it just dodgy printing?
Inside the book, the Beatrice dedication also seems to be in Caslon Antique, as are the chapter numbers. But does anyone know what font the word "C H A P T E R" is in?
Finally, the main body text seems to be Caslon 540, with italics used for emphasis. But the first word of the chapter - for instance, "Certain" in chapter 1 of TPP - seems to be slightly different from Caslon 540 italics. What is it?
EDIT: I missed out another type. When Geraldine Julienne suggests headlines, e.g. "EVERYBODY IS INNOCENT. Wait until the readers of The Daily Punctilio see that!" (or something along those lines), she gets a different font for her headlines. It's also used in a couple of other places, such as for HOTEL DENOUEMENT. Does anyone know what it is?
I was once linked Pablo LET before on the suggestion that that was the title font for the Egmont covers, so that's semi-confirmation of that. As for the all-caps statements, headlines and similar in the books, are you sure those aren't just small caps of the same font? I thought that was a thing you could do for fonts.
Terry Craig: that was an ace retort tbh, jean

jeanlucio10: I would like to read now a short story written by Lemony Snicket about how VFD helped to defeat Nazism. This would be interesting to introduce the subject to children.

jeanlucio10: "Anne Frank - the Diary of a Young Girl",could be the book club's third book? I haven't read this one either.

Terry Craig: I think the historical events are interesting enough on their own, and don't need to be taught just to introduce children to Lemony Snicket.

jeanlucio10: You're right Terry.

jeanlucio10: This request of mine was a selfish appeal from my heart, disguised as a request on behalf of the children.
