Hi Tobi & Ryuk,

the original name is West Nouveau Didot. The typeface was designed by Dave West for Photo-Lettering.

thanks Florian, the unofficial version of WEST NOUVEAU DIDOT is much better than MARDI GRAS

also thanks to Ryuk for finding Mardi Gras

Unfortunately I don't know the original name of this typeface, hopefully some wise of guys over here may do. That said, it looks like Bob Alonso did a digitization under the name of "Mardi Gras", far less contrasted though.
