John Pistilli was born in 1925, died in 2003. He worked for the advertising agency Sudler & Hennessey, where he was head of lettering design. In 1964, Herb Lubalin made a typeface with him called Pistilli Roman (photocomposition format only, VGC). There are also Bold and Black weights. It is one of the most gorgeous extreme-contrast didone headline typefaces ever made. [Luc Devroye] First used on a National Typeface Design Competition Poster by Lubalin.
