    I thought this was a Goudy or Garamond with swashes but I'm not finding it any where. I know I've seen it but for the life of me, I can't name. anyone know the name? the picture is pretty crappy, sorry. I tried to run it thru "find this font" but it's a pretty bad sample so I got nothing.

    Town & Country appears to be Classical Garamond Bold with the ampersand being from the italic set. The secondary copy appears to be Goudy Old Style Bold.

    FWIW, the Country line has been condensed and the swash characters are from Poetica Roman Small Caps Alternates while the balance is not and does not come up with a match in my database. I agree that the balance of the text appears to be someone's version of Garamond ... possible one of the Adobe Garamond family.
