http://www.logo.nino.ru/_data/objects/55898/logo_thumbnail.gif anybody have an idea?
There's a poorly done imitation of it here. But I'm sure there must be a real version out there somewhere. Even though they're definitely not the same, the Godfather font shares a lot of characteristics with the original "Star Trek" titles, though, don't you think?
A close match is Fiorello. Obviously you will have to make some changes.
Another one to look at is Horizon: http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/bitstream/horizon/ hhp
The counters in horizon are square, whereas, the counter in fiorello are not. :p
Fiorello is it. Horizon is the "Star Trek" font I mentioned previously. Plus, for what it's worth, Fiorello has an Italian name, strengthening the Mafia connection.
A company called Novel Font Corp. had a pretty decent rendition called Rublof. Most of their fonts, though, were knockoffs. So there must be an original that's close. Sadly, I can't find Novel Fonts on the web.
I think it's handdrawn, but I could be wrong.
