Times Gothic was also digitized as BN Times Gothic by Brandon Nickerson in January 2021.
Thank you, Jay! Brandon mentions he based his version on wood type specimens (i.e. not ATF’s foundry type), and “updated the tapers to include more contrast and included/trimmed down certain characters to enhance digital and print legibility.” The attached image shows a comparison of ➊ ATF’s Times Gothic (which exhibits major differences between the sizes), ➋ Jordan Davies’s digital version (Wooden Type Fonts, 2009) which likewise is said to be based on a wood type version, and ➌ BN Times Gothic. The latter is much smoother, but also quite far removed from the source. There is a double-storey g, but the default form is monocular.
