Fontana Records logo


Can anyone figure this one out?


Logo dates perhaps as far back as 1954, when the company was founded. Have not yet found a font from the era or earlier that is an exact match. During the 1950s the record companies used the services od photo lettering firms to distort typefaces --wider, narrower, lighter, heavier etc. . There may not be an exact match to the logo. The _o_ and _a_ almost look as if they were from different fonts. But at least one font has something similar. Folio EF Bold Cond, designed in 1957, Increase the rounding on the bowl of _a_ and you are at least in the ball park.
Then again, it could be custom lettering for the logo.
