Font family for the logo?

monsieur_champs has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm trying to make an "official" t-shirt for the São Paulo Perl Mongers and I would love to keep some visual identity with the Perl Mongers logo.

My question is: anybody here can tell me the font family or font name for this Perl Mongers logo?

And anybody here can point me any visual presentation recomendations (or rules) so I don't mis-use this logo on São Paulo Perl Mongers t-shirts?

Many many many thanks in advance and may the gods bless you all.

      Yes, Candida was the font name. Now that someone said it I remember :)

      Note that the original designer played around with font weights and kerning to get the final type layout. I have it as an EPS file (converted to paths, so it's not "type" anymore).

    Let me see if I can find the original artwork for you. I have all that stuff on CDs lying around somewhere.

    Given a day, the name of the font will probably come back to me, and if someone says its name, I will know instantly. I have some postscript files lying about. Are there any nifty tools that will tell me the names of the fonts in them?

    Note however, that the logo contains a trademark and you need to get permission to use it.
