I am very enthusiastic about this font being used in that newsletter published by SoftSide in New Hampshire (U.S.) when computers were in their early years. 

 

The glyph set above shows the alternates (A, C, E, G, L, O, R, S, etc.) and the use of the funky computer contrast and rounded corners, which the face came from a photosetting foundry during the 1970s.

 

If anyone has an answer, please let me know!

Dan X. Solo had it in his Solotype Catalog as DXS Tuxedo.

 

You can see an image of it on this page. There is a download link at the bottom of the first section of the page—click through and go to the "DXS-Art Deco Display (alphabets)/" link.

Thanks, Kev for that reply. So anyone thinks is it gonna be on the Fonts in Use database then?

Fonts in Use was the first place I looked for it—with no luck.

 

I’d want to track down the origin of the typeface before posting it there, but the Solopedia website doesn’t provide much detail.

Maybe Florian Hardwig could do the job...

I don’t know about its origins either, but it has an entry now, as Tuxedo.
