Pistilli Roman was a photocompositor typeface collaboratively designed by Herb Lubalin and John Pistilli. It was first shown in 1964.
Eloquent (Jason Walcott for Veer) and OPTI Pirogi (Castcraft Software) are two digital interpretations of the face, but no officially authorized revival has been made.
