From the collection ofBologna, issued by Stephenson Blake in 1946. ATF copied it in c. 1951 as Verona. Mac McGrew: "The name was changed to avoid that disrespectful printers call it 'baloney' […] At the time ATF did not realize that Stephenson Blake had in turn adapted the design from an earlier ATF face, Humanistic, drawn by William Dana Orcutt in 1904" and adapted for the Monotype as Laurentian. Mikadan (Typodermic, 2006) is a digital tribute.

The script isAmanda, designed at Wagner & Schmidt and first cast in 1939 by Stephenson Blake. The design was digitally revived and extended as Adore (Canada Type, 2005). It also inspired Mecheria (Typodermic, 2005).
