ABOUT







Friedrich Wilhelm Kleukens

German type designer, 1878 (Achim)-1956 (Nürtingen). Studied in Berlin. Founder in 1900, with F.H. Ehmcke and Georg Belwe, of the Steglitzer Werkstatt, which he left in 1903. He taught at the Leipzig Academy of Graphic Design and Book Arts from 1903 until 1906. Thereafter he taught in Darmstadt and worked at private presses. From 1924 until 1931, he was advisor at D. Stempel AG, where he made, e.g., Gotische Antiqua (1914), Helga (1912, with round wide lower-case letters), Helga Antiqua (1913), Ingeborg Antiqua (1910), Omega (1926: art deco), Kleukens Scriptura (1926), Ratio Latein (1923), and Kleukens Fraktur (1910-1911) [sample scans: sample text, Zierbuchstaben, alphabet]. Still later, he made Trennert Fraktur (1931) at J.D.Trennert&Sohn. He also made Gutenberg-Fraktur.

Many of his typefaces were revived. Kleukens Antiqua (Bauersche Giesserei, 1910) was revived by Nick Curtis in 2007 as Kleukens Antiqua NF and by Christine Gertsch at KABK in 2012 as Kleukens Antiqua. Kleukens Scriptura was digitally revived as Kleukens Kursiv NF (2010, Nick Curtis). The Scangraphic collection has his Trieste (1910). Petra Heidorn and her group created a revival of Kleukens Fraktur. Canada Type (Kevin Allan King and Patrick Griffith) published Ratio Modern (2011), a spectacular revival of Kleukens' 1923 didone face. Omega was revived by Ralph M. Unger in 2020 as RMU Omega.
