What is the Umbra® font?

Umbra was designed by R. Hunter Middleton for the Ludlow Corporation in 1935. This is a three-dimensional typeface, unique in that the main character shape is defined only by its shadow.
It was originally designed to be a second-color drop-shadow for the typeface Tempo, but stands alone as an unusual display face.
