Designed by Joseph Churchward in 1969. [Bennewith] Shown in a ca. 1972 specimen by Churchward International Typefaces and in Berthold’s E1 catalog (1974) in Black and Shadow styles, each with italics.
Digital versions by Churchward Type (2003?) and BluHead Studio (2007, with Shadow). Proud Mary NF (Nick's Fonts, 2010) is a digital version of the Italic.
The Musée de l'imprimerie de Lyon shows a sheet with Greek characters and credits it to Ladislas Mandel, presumably because the source is the Fonds Mandel.
