Hi, need some help in identifying this typeface. From what I understand it is of Bodoni origins but would be great to identify which designer and foundry created it.
Do you have reason to believe that it's a font rather than a drawn alphabet? What's the source of the image you posted? Personally, I think it looks like an ugly hodge podge of elements of Broadway-like characters, slanted avant-garde, and total blackouts.
It's from this source – http://tone5687.wordpress.com/2010/03/18/bodoni-and-the-italian-font-scene/
Tried getting in contact with the original author but with no luck. I appreciate it's not to everyones taste and needs development but it sits nicely for a current logotype project.
Managed to find it in the end, it's by Steve Buffoni — http://www.behance.net/gallery/Metropolitain-Typeface/361696
