Okela is a bar in the Indautxu neighbourhood of Bilbao, Spain. On modest napkins, the bar saw ample space to use two colors and four typefaces: Rockwell Extra Bold for the logo; Medici Script (Hermann Zapf) in the text “Bilbao 1983 / Pedido on line / www.barokela.com”; El Greco (Günter Gerhard Lange) for “Marqués Navarrete”; and Times for “RIOJA” (Bold, manually condensed) and Bold Italic for the last three lines.

The first documented Use in the Collection for two typefaces by two grand old men of German typeface design at once – and then it’s a hardly imposing napkin. I think that’s hilarious!
