Woodcut version of the Solano font?

Hi,

In the last issue of Fortune Mag (Feb 2011), you can see a 3D version of what I believe is the Solano font.

Are you aware of a 3D version of this font? If yes, where could I find it.
Do you know a quick way to achieve this kind of effect? (ie an illustrator plugin)
Is there similar font out there? What would be the keyword to dig those out? (English is not my primary langage)

Thank you.
