    Looking through the images in https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Mistmantle...se-d37bzkq.jpg, it really looks as if it was custom made for that one title.
    There is even one book without it. Perhaps it was misplaced.
    Another, the publisher decided to squash things a little.
    The French versions just use it for Mistmantle and omit the flourish for Chronicles; the Russion one didn't bother.

    HI Acorn

    Yes I trying to find out what font it is on the US covers. It probably has been modified but I'm not sure what the base font is. I've spent a lot of time searching. It was published in 2005 so the font can't be later than that.

    Thanks for answering.

    That M looks familiar but I'm probably thinking of something more recent, I'll look into it further.

    It looks like a modified MONOTYPE CORSIVA

    Have you tried Google Lens? It's very useful for finding fonts actually
