Originally created by Gary Elfring as a film typeface in the 1970s. In the early 1990s, Elfring Fonts created a digital version in four variants, with many modified glyphs. [P. Concannon] The original is shown in the Solotype catalog (used for sample) and in the Art Deco Display Alphabets book, with several alternates. Other phototype catalogs show additional alternates. Eager is an alias.
“Terranova NF (Nick’s Fonts) is a revival but lacks many of the alternate characters. Earth Normal (Elfring) is very similar.” — Solopedia Future Earth (V. Sarela) is a homage made in Fonstruct. Pbio (Gregor Adams) is a freebie based on the font used by music equipment manufacturer Roland.
