Windsor is a playful display face with heavy rounded serifs designed by Elisha Pechey in 1905 for the Sheffield type foundry Stephenson, Blake. Times New Roman it ain’t. It’s the kind of typeface you might have expected to have seen in adverts pasted on to the sides of buildings in London or New York a century ago. Today it announces Woody Allen as surely as Johnston type does the London Underground.

Why wasn’t it used for the cover of his recent autobiography ?
Actually, it was: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apropos_of_Nothing
Close, but no cigar. That’s not Windsor, but ITC Clearface Heavy.
Ha. The new Netflix series The Shrink Next Door is using Clearface and I thought it looked like Woody Allen credits font. Thanks for this page!
