ABOUT







Karl Hermann Schaefer

German type designer, b. Diortmund, 1892, d. Bethel, 1947. He studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Dortmund. From the 1930s onwards, he ran the print shop Bald&Krüger in Hagen. Schaefer designed these typefaces:

  • The five-line shaded art deco typeface Fatima (1933, Schriftguss). A later copy at FT Française was called Atlas (1933). This was digitized by Harold Lohner in 2001 first as Farouk, but then renamed Atlas. In 2016, Manuel Lage extended Fatima to Alicia LGF. Vladimir Nikolic designed the free typeface Schaeffer in 2017 based on Fatima.
  • Versalien or Schaefer Versalien (Schriftguss, 1927). A lineale titling font on a shaded background. Chiron did a revival called TbC Schaefer-Versalien (2012). Nick Curtis created a commercial version called Capital Ideas 2 NF.
  • Capitol (Schriftguss, 1931). A lineale with an extra vertical stroke on the left of each glyph, typical of the art deco era. For a revival, see Capitol Pro (2012, Ralph M. Unger).
  • Cito Versalien (1930, Schriftguss).
  • Orchidea (1937, Schriftguss). A script face.
  • Blickfang Schmuck (1927, Schriftguss). Ornaments and dingbats.
  • Kombi (1930, Ludwig & Mayer).
