Designed by Dave Trooper for VGC. Released in the late 1960s. VGC 1976 and Phil’s Photo 1980 catalogs show three weights plus one italic. Other phototype houses offered it as Moresque (Castcraft), Mountie (Alphabet Innovations) or Times (Roman) Modern (Facsimile Fonts, with numerous swash alternates).
In 2013, Dave Trooper released a Bold Display digital version (created with the help of Dennis Ortiz-Lopez) through his own foundry, later replacing it with the original Roman and Italic. Unfortunately it lacks some kerning and other nuances.
