An official digital version was produced by Terry Wüdenbachs and released with P22 in March 2021. It spans 11 styles that can be layered for chromatic effect, incl. solid and outline styles (see Sesame Place), plus a twelfth style named P22 Glaser Houdini Vanished. “This font shares the same spacing and kerning as all of the Houdini font but lacks all visible outlines.”
