Jest began as a suggestion from Jeff Levine, in the form of a scan from "a 1970s Formatt catalog (#8) from Graphics Products Corporation of Rolling Meadows, IL." Stuart informs me that "the Jest font, originally called Jet, was offered first by a company called Artype from the Chicago area who made it as as rub-on transfer type like Letraset or Chartpak."
The original font included the white line. I've completely redrawn and expanded the font and created a solid version that can be layered with the Inline.
