First time here? Maybe read the FAQ.

Monotone serif, reportedly from Fifties or Sixties

Someone sent me this sample from a Hardy Boys book and claimed it was fifty or sixty years old. This doesn't look like a font from that era to me. I have been unable to identify it and wondered if anyone here would recognize it. Thanks.

Funny, I answered this request on two other sites. Your instincts about era were correct: this is Bookerly, the new Kindle font family. I guess the requester assumes the e-book is actually a capture of the pages as they were originally typeset.
