I should truly appreciate help in identifying the font used in the sample provided below. I don't know if it is an italicized version of a standard font, or if it is custom. It will be great if I can have the font precisely identified, but if not, then to have something similar will be nearly as good. Alternately, it will be very helpful to me to have a sort of "font type category" which will help me to narrow my search. Thank you all in advance.
