Charade was designed by Al Elliott and released in the late 1960s or early 1970s by Headliners. [McDonald] It appears in various phototype catalogs, sometimes as Gaston. Homage to the Alphabet also shows it as Brandywine Bold although it appears to be a separate typeface from Brandywine.
There are digital versions of Gaston by Opti/Castcraft Software Inc. (mediocre) and Dan X. Solo (useless). Jason Walcott’s Groovin’ (2005) is a better interpretation. Profonts’ Charade has a higher glyph count, but no alternates – and it doesn’t join up. Charade/Gaston has a lot in common with Benguiat Charisma (Photo-Lettering Inc., 1969?) and Alan Meeks’ Candice (Letraset, 1976).
