Carlos Winkow is a version of his original name, Carl Winckow. Winkow (1882-1952) was born in Sömmerda, Germany but worked in Spain from 1909 until 1934 for Richard Gans, in Germany from 1936 until 1939 for Norddeutschen Schriftgiesserei in Berlin, and in Spain again from 1940 onwards at Fundicion Tipografica Nacional in Madrid. His typefaces include
- Alfrodita (1946). An engraved typeface published by FT Nacional.
- Alcazar (FT Nacional, 1944). An inline 3d titling font.
- Astur (1948, FT Nacional). A wooden plank typeface.
- Belinda (FT Nacional).
- Cursiva Rusinal (FT Nacional). This is identical to Reporter except in the alternates.
- Electra (FT Nacional, early 1940s). An almost avant-garde sans family, which includes the ultra thin Estrecha Fina weight. Romeo (Font Bureau) takes some cues from Electra and says that it is a spectacular art deco sanserif with an unusually fine condensed series. See also Casablanca (1997, Steve Jackaman for ITF, now Red Rooster Collection; a revival of Electra Clara) and Carlos (Jason Castle, CastleType). Klingspor dates Electra Fina in 1942.
- Elzeviriano Ibarra (1931, for Fundicion Tipografica Richard Gans). Lucia Walter revived Winkow's 1931 text typeface Elzeviriano Ibarra in 2011. See also Gans Ibarra (2006, Intellecta Design).
- Gong (1945, Johannes Wagner; Norddeutschen Schriftgiesserei). A chalk script face. Jaspert mentions the date 1951. A standard non-chalk version of Gong was done by J. Wagner in 1967, and was published as Jowa Script (Jowa Schreibschrift), which in turn provided inspiration for Iova Nova (2007, Ralph M. Unger)
- Grotesca Radio (Richard Gans Foundry), at least according to some sources. For a revival and reinterpretation, see Radar (2019) by Marta Sanchez Marco for Type-o-Tones.
- Hispalis (+Cursiva, +Negro, +Titling, +Negro Titling) (1940, FT Nacional).
- Iberica (FT Nacional, 1942). An open shaded inclined 3d lineale. See Roller (1997, Pat Hickson, ITF and Red Rooster Collection).
- Nacional (+Cursiva, +Negra) (1941, Nacional). A calligraphic roman in old medieval Spanish style with Clasico Nacional 1 and Clasico Nacional Negro weights. See Madrid (Steve Jackaman, Red Rooster Collection) for a digital revival.
- Numantina (1940, FT Nacional). Revived by Nick Curtis as Numancia NF (2011, Nicks Fonts).
- Radar (1940, FT Nacional). a brush script.
- The brush script typeface Reporter (1938, the Wagner foundry; Norddeutschen Schriftgiesserei). Digital revivals: Reporter No. 2 (Adobe), Reporter 2 (Linotype).
- Rusinol (1941, FT Nacional).
