Umbra, or other block-shadow-only typefaces in use?

I was wondering if anyone could provide examples of Umbra, or something like it, in use:

The only time I've seen it used is on the back of the Tortoise and Bonnie Prince Billy album, The Brave and The Bold, for the track listing on the back.

Also, the recent Channel 4 logo redesign did a similar block-shadow-only thing:

Any other examples?

The really interesting thing about making something like Umbra is how one's meant to space it.
