alexx, at first glance this appears to be a font, and it is indeed gorgeous calligraphy, but when blown can see that the duplicate letters do not match. They are quite close...but not exact, and would be were this a font. (unless it is an Open Type that I do not recognize, but I’m doubtful about that). I could try to find some similar fonts for you if you would like. Let me know.

Case marked not-a-font.

jan, first of all, thanks! I didn’t think of matching duplicate letters - that was a sharp one! :)

If you have suggestions to similar fonts I would be grateful cause like you said it is a beautiful calligraphy indeed! I already found the popular “Swan song” but more would only help.

Again, thanks!

LOL! Swang Song was the first that came to mind! Anyway, I’m happy to help out, but will have to be Friday. I’m was past my beddie-bye and am hitting a wall.

I’m about 94% sure it’s a font, will keep looking, hopefully not wasting my time :)

Changed my mind lol :/

While some letters are just supernaturally consistent, and it’s possible differences can be the result of opentype happiness, there are other covers with this lettering and their letters are all different too. example:

So, nice handwriting it is... this designer should make it a font.

Oooh! I agree, creedo. It is lovely calligraphy.

So differences is possible for Opentype? Didn’t know that - Yum, yum! :)

I love to get my hands on this one though. It’s really beautiful.

well, it’s pretty much confirmed not a font, because it appears to be the work of a well-known calligrapher named Ruth Rowland:

Her work is really amazing. Part of the reason for the consistency is she’ll scan and re-use a couple of letters (within each job, not for all of her work). Sneaky~

And yeah, opentype is neat, it not only lets you choose alternates, it can automatically fit in the best alternate in certain situations (like... if this were a font, it would automatically make the taller, longer r to fit over the y, but choose the regular r to fit over an o)
