Albert Christoph Auspurg

German type designer, b. Frankfurt am Main, 1868, d. Leipzig, 1943. His oeuvre:

  • At C.E. Weber: Start (1934).
  • At Ludwig&Mayer: Aristokrat (1912), Miracle (1931, a script face), Rasse (1924), Schöndeutsch (1934), Reklame-Fraktur (1914; revived in 2016 by Ralph M. Unger as Reklame Fraktur), the gorgeous long-legged Mona Lisa (1930; digital version by Pat Hickson, 1992), the blackletter typeface Deutsche Kraft (1915), Brigitte (1935), the display roman typeface Krimhilde (1933-1934).
  • At Schriftguss: Lido (1936, script face).
  • At Benjamin and Krebs: Brentano Fraktur (1915-1916), Federzug Antiqua (1913), Nürnberger Kanzlei (1906), Schönbrunn (1928), Trajan Versalien (1928).
  • At Genzsch&Heyse, he did Hans Sachs Gotisch (1911, revived in 2005 by Petra Heidorn; the typeface also appeared at Ludwig Wagner, where some date the Initialen style at 1902---Hans Sachs Gotisch was named after Hans Sachs from Nürnberg, 1494-1576, who was a master singer and songwriter), Domina (1929), Souverän (1913).
  • At Haas: Castor (1924), Pollux (1925).
  • At Trennert: Trocadero Kursiv (1927, a script font with flourished capitals). In 2010, it was extended and revived by Ralph Unger as Trocadero Pro.
  • At Berthold: the peculiar Messe Grotesk family (1921-1927) and the shaded titling typeface Vesta (1926, a Mexican simulation face; for a digitization, see Visillo Adornado (2006, Nick Curtis) or Venezuela RR (2000, Pat Hickson at Rabbit Reproductions Typefoundry, aka Red Rooster)). The Messe Grotesk design was revived by Nick Curtis as Troglodyte NF (2006-2011) and by Paul Hickson as Messe Grotesk (1997, Red Rooster).
  • At AG für Schriftgiesserei in Offenbach: the blackletter typefaces Apart (1911) and Fraktur-Kursiv (1923).
  • At Schelter & Gisecke: Kolibri (1915; for a digital version of this multiline open typeface caps face, see Trochilida NF (2012, Nick Curtis)).
  • At Berling: the italic open capitals typeface Berling Kortversaler.
Pat Hickson made the aristocratic long-legged ITC Mona Lisa Recut (1990) based on Auspurg's designs. Red Rooster published his Honduras RR.
