    Priva Pro (Bold Italic) is the closest I have found. The "i" is not the same but could easily be vectored and line added to it.

    Corpid C1s SCd (Bold Italic) but this one the "t" is slightly off and whole thing is more slanted.

    Those two are indeed similar, but I'm looking for the actual font. Thanks

    ^^^ If there were, I would have included them. The few other letters (like an "l" or "z") had no distinguishing features or characteristics.

    There are infinite ways to draw every letter of the alphabet.

    Anyway, Corpid is indeed the correct answer. It's a large family, so check the other styles for a better match. The sample you gave has been distorted or poorly redrawn, so the real Corpid will not be a 100% perfect match to your sample.

    I have painfully scrutinized your suggestion, but it is not a correct match. It's close, but there are too many critical differences.

    It's not an exact match but ITC Officina bold italic comes close.

    Best of luck, then. If you need any more help, post the original sample you were given, before anything was edited. No crops, no autotracing, no resizing, no contrast enhancement, nothing. If you don't post the original sample, you are wasting the time of those who are trying to help you.

    Are you writing a novel with it? If not then do like everyone else, get close, convert to curves (or whatever Illustrator snobs call it) and screw with it until it matches. Or just get close enough and call it a day, nobody will know.

    You would never know if you did not see the original as you wanted Colin to post.

    Anyway, I'm 98% sure this sample began its tortured life as Corpid. There are numerous clues in the sample. Someone gave someone a low-res image of the text to trace, they traced it poorly (as one does), and then it was re-rasterized into the result you see here. Prove me wrong, I dare you.

    Fair enough, I would too. Who would actually care is the question. No one that matters. If they do, find a new customer.

    Nobody is gonna steal your job. Don't be scared, just show all the goods. If that is all of it, you are a retard.
