Very similar to Rudolf Koch's Prisma (about 1930). Follow the download link at the bottom.

Edit: Mike Yanega's Multiline Font Guide, which includes several undigitized Letraset typefaces, shows nothing closer than Prisma.

Thanks for the link, Mike. That's very useful.

I didn't realize that I was missing Prisma from that Guide. I have it in one of the Dover books by Dan Solo, and so I will add a scan of that one too. The posted sample is like Prisma, as Mike said, except that the Prisma in this book shows five lines, rather than three, in each stroke.

It turned out there were four other typefaces, in addition to Prisma, in that book that I wanted to show. I have just completed updating the Multiline page of the Lined Font ID Guide.

You had a Prisma showing under the name Mirage, Mike - to which George Williams added a lowercase.

Yeah, I realized that, but the 'real' Prisma had no lower case, and besides that other sample was too hard to see.
