Original designer unknown. Shown in Brushstroke and free-style alphabets (Dover Publications, 1977). Line-O-Scribe used similar lettering in the 1950s. [Depression Press]
Digitized in 1990 by David Rakowski (with poor outlines and a faux-bold style) and published as shareware. Dragonfly is another digitization made by Rick W. Mueller in 1993, with smoother (but still unconvincing) outlines and a larger character set. Rakowski’s version was revised by Andreas Höfeld, first in 2002, adding accented characters and kerning pairs, and changing a few glyphs (see e.g. ‘FTs’), and again in 2013, now named Dragonwick FG (Fontgrube).
