Not Whitefriars, and as noted by another, possibly Holmegaard before any other choice. However, there is a Japanese tone to them that I have also seen.

Are these Murano?

I would also say not Whitefriars, for the record.

You probably weren't aware, but it's arguably a copyright violation to have uploaded a photograph of a page from a published book. It might be a good idea to delete that link.

It isn't really necessary to show that page. Many people here (notably Emmi, Max and Nic) have a good enough knowledge of Whitefriars to recognise the bubbles - best to just quote the book title, author (Lesley Jackson?) and page number, and let people look it up themselves.

All the best,
