Hello Molly, nice to meet you and thanks for your input!

I did some research, and it looks like the fonts used in the Anne of Green Gables title are a combination of 2

  1. Caslon 540 ITALIC (for the small case)
  2. Caslon Becker No540 Swash Alt Italic (for the caps -A- of Anne and -G- for Green and Gables.)

Interestingly, the Capital G of Caslon Becker No.540 has its tail (or stem?) much shorter than the one used in the title. But beside the stem lenght, it’s the same.

I’d like to know if that stem was added for the look of the title, or if it’s from another Caslon font, but I haven’t been able to find it.

What do you mean when you say :

That’s where Avisynth comes in. XD

Thanks again for the input!
