The letters are all so colorful and dynamic....

I am not even going to try guess the font, anyone want to take a stab?

But in any case, when I see this one with all of it's color and balance, I want to say that I see live keys!

It's Gill Sans of some sort. Of course English used to have lots of interesting letters, such as thorn þ, eth ð, wynn ƿ, yogh ȝ, ash æ, long s ſ, r rotunda ꝛ, etc.
