What font is this?

I found this wonderful font and I can't figure out what type it is. Can you help?

The font is in the logo here:


It's the ministry logo all the way at the bottom. Is there something I can do in the future to figure this out.

In the future you could use something like What The Font to upload an image to get font matches. But I don't think you'd get much out of it with a tiny image like this one.

In this specific instance, if I were you I'd contact the New Zealand Ministry of Justice and ask what the font in their logo is. That way you'd get a definitive answer.

Response by poster: I asked 2 weeks ago, and they haven't responded. Also, the site you showed me is not working with the graphics.

Any other help?

I used Identifont to try and narrow it down, and it gave me Jenson Classico, though I think Adobe Jenson is closer to the font you're looking for. Neither are the right one, I think, because the capital S still doesn't look right, but if you're looking for a stylistically close match, you can't go wrong with it. Seconding bjrn's idea to contact the Ministry directly and ask what they used.

I tried a larger version of the image with WhatTheFont. It suggests Adobe Garamond SemiBold.

I downloaded a PDF, pulled out the logo and got the same result as Ms. Next - Adobe Garamond Semibold.

The Font Matcherator also suggests Adobe Garamond Pro when given the same large logo used by Ms. Next. It appears to be an exact match to me.

It reminds me of a font that I like called Iowan Old Style.
