It is included in the digitizations by URW, Elsner+Flake, Image Club (1995), Castcraft, and Red Rooster. Jason Castle’s interpretation was commissioned by Emporium (now Macy’s) for use in their Sunday supplement to the San Francisco Examiner. Later completed with lowercase letters and expanded with two new weights, Light and Medium, and released as Radiant Extra Condensed CT (CastleType, used for sample).
