Thank you sir!

Modern no 20 is similar but not quite the same.

Seems pretty close to Pistilli Roman, although this 's' looks thinner. We've talked about this typeface before, and if there is a digital version, that may be what this is. The sample I am seeing is in the Phil's Photo 'Homage to the Alphabet' book, and is a film type.

A quick Google search of Typophile found several places where we talked about Phil Martin's Didoni being the closest digital version to Pistilli Roman. I think that might be your answer.

Thank you, that is much closer. I appreciate both of your assistance.

i've loved Pistilli ever since Mark mentioned it a few years back. (actually Nov. 2003)

here's Pistilli



this mark is from a restaurant in Philadelphia ...

perhaps it's an offshoot of the font they are using on the site?

Thank you very much Pistilli is great. Has it been made digital or is there just Didoni?

bjharvey, any relation to Polly Jean?

ashley, there's a link below the above graphic to the first Pistilli thread. No, it hasn't been made digital.

re: nickname ... old name from 6 years ago when I happened to be listening to Polly Jean a bit. :)

it's ITC Didi

And the ITC Didi clue then yields Paratype's Didona. Nice catch, Johannes.
