Wedge Serif a Little Like Matrix

Other Minds1.jpg

This image was sent to me to identify the type. I couldn't find a match, although Emigre Matrix has some similarities. Key letters that I couldn't seem to find ALL in a single font: M, P, C, R and (mostly) serif-less S. The serifs are all triangles, and I wondered if this could have been a Garamond with the serifs replaced?

Anyone recognize the font?

If Mike Yanega could not find a match, means that's a tough one. ;)

Hey Mike. Ditto to what Andre said.

The only way I knew this was that it had been featured on Fonts in Use just in the last week or so, in a post about The Outline website (which uses it as a webfont). I believe this is Portrait, by Berton Hasebe (2013):

Ran your second sample through fivosv's software, Find My Font, to confirm. Appears to be a match.

I'm flattered by the compliments, but we all need help, and Kevin you nailed it. I passed that on to the guy who asked.

 

Thanks for the help.
