Lettering. The only font I know of that comes anywhere close to the big drop swoosh S is Vulpa, which has it as an alternate italic S. It also has an italic swash D as an alternate. Here they are together with the regular lower case


The lower case is shown at 80% to approximate the label. You could get the effect by using a smaller point size for the lower case than for the capitals. http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/schizotype/vulpa/

Agree with Don. Lettering. Other option, Mark Simonson's Bookman revival Bookmania using some stylistic alternates: /D and /S
