Primer-anyone have any info on this typeface?

The other day I came across a reference to a typeface called Primer—I understand it to be be similar to Century. I've not heard of it before, and was wondering if anyone has any info on it. Who drew/cut it? Is there a digital version? Google searches have yielded little, and I cannot get the Typophile searches to work. Any info would be appreciated.

Hi Stephen, we've been discussing Primer/Bitstream Century 751 recently, in this thread:

Excellent, Thank you. I like how Primer is a little lighter than Century. I do lament that there does not seem to be a faithful digital version. Again thanks
