The jacket image on the previous post is from http://welovetypography.com/tag/book-jacket/ — I love typography as well!

I found a link to this beautiful font on that site.

Here’s something about the font, from the flickr page:

Inspired by designs in “how-to” commercial lettering guides of the 1940s, it has been refined and brought into the 21st century through a huge variety of ornate swash letterforms. The lowercase “h” alone offers 43 variants. Hundreds of ornamental ascenders and descenders allow a beautiful interplay of strokes and combinations, while avoiding overlaps or conflicts. Adios Script features a mind-boggling 1,470 characters in total, in OpenType format.
