ABOUT







Paul Eduard Lautenbach

German type designer (b. 1875, d. 1954, Berlin [note: Schnelle mentions that he died in 1926 in Berlin, and Klingspor puts the date as 1927]) who designed these typefaces:

  • The heavy German script typeface Prägefest (Ludwig&Mayer, 1926).
  • Lautenbach-Gotisch and Zierversalien (1912, Ludwig & Mayer). Klingspor mentions 1914. A free revival by Dieter Steffmann simply as Lautenbach. Klaus Burkhardt and Dan X. Solo also have revivals called Lautenbach. see also Ernst H. Wulfert's Lautenbach.
  • Frankfurter Buchschrift I and II (1906, Benjamin and Krebs).
  • Eskorial (1909) and Eskorial halbfett (1908), both published at Emil Gursch in Berlin.
  • Epoche and Epoche Schmuck (1912, Benjamin and Krebs).
  • Lautenbach Kursiv (1926, Ludwig & Mayer).
  • Markant (1909, Ludwig & Mayer).
  • Ohio Kraft (1922, Schriftguss AG). Oliver Weiss has a 3-style revival. WF Neue Ohio Schrift is described by him as follows: The Brüder Butter foundry in Dresden had a good working relationship with ATF, and thus several American typefaces found their way into the Butter catalog. Among them was Pabst Oldstyle, designed in 1902. Brüder Butter changed the erect peak of Pabst's A to a flaccid one, and distributed the result as Ohio Schrift, starting about 1913. Throughout the 1920s, Brüder Butter marketed the Ohio family through a series of leaflets that put the typeface through its paces in innovative ways. WF Neue Ohio Kursiv is the Italian companion. In 1922, Brüder Butter added a bold typeface to the Ohio family. This was not an ATF transplant, but a new design by Eduard Lautenbach. It was available with a set of swash capitals, and several curly-cued, lowercase alternates, ideally suited for children's books. Weiss's revival of the latter typeface is WF Neue Ohio Kraft.
  • Walgunde mit Zieraten (1908, Schelter & Giesecke). Klingspor writes that the date is 1906.
