(x) Ultra-fat seventies style Didone "Chop Shop" - Stilla {Yves}

Doesn't have to be this exact face, and there's obviously been some work done to the characters, but if anyone's got a similar font to this I'd be most grateful! It needs the funky twist to the letters, like the big drop endings to the cap serifs, so the simple black-poster fonts I've been trying (Fenice, Bodoni, Didot etc) won't cut it I'm afraid.

Thanks! Chris

That's the funkalicious Stilla.

It certainly is, spot on. Most obliged!

Ha! I had just discovered this very one last week:

Now I know its name … thanks Yves. Great ‘w’, strangest ‘F’ ever …

Hi everyone,

Until a few months ago, there was a ladies' strip club in the remnants of Boston's Combat Zone called The Glass Slipper which used Stilla on its outside sign. I wish I'd taken a picture of it, because it seemed so very appropriate to the venue... The building it was in, got demolished and they moved across the street; now the sign is done in Zapfino, ALL CAPS! =:-o

Cheers,
John the Fontaholic
(who never stepped inside the place, just observed its typography from the outside!)

I just bought Stilla from Fontshop and the purchase went through so fast. That is the fastest shopping cart I have ever used!
