    Salon Tippelt on Schudomastraße, Berlin-Neukölln, used to be a hairdresser’s shop. Today it has been repurposed as bar. The gracefully aged sign has been preserved, except for the last letter.

    The typeface is Stilla by François Boltana (1950–1999), who designed the fat cursive with voluptuous ball terminals in 1972. None of the digitally available versions include the ‘Ti’ ligature nor the swashy ‘N’ and the sweeping ‘L’, but I assume at least some of these were included in the original version. I would be grateful to see a full specimen of the Letraset glyph set.

      Maybe I should simply get myself the Boltana monography by Atelier Perrousseaux …

      I was lucky enough to get a copy of the book because I was quoted in it. I’ll ask Frank Abediaye if he can share some Stilla specimens.
