ABOUT







Otto Weisert

Typefounder who ran the Schriftgiesserei Otto Weisert in Stuttgart. Designer of the prototypical Jugendstil font Arnold Boecklin in 1904 (available at URW, Linotype, Adobe, Scangraphic, Mecanorma, and Softmaker [where it is known as Jugendstil]), and of the blackletter fonts Moderne Fette Schwabacher and Brabanter Gotisch (1905). He also made the great-looking art nouveau style Kalligraphia (digital revivals at Linotype, URW, Scangraphic and Elsner&Flake). For recent revivals of Kalligraphia, see Kalligraphia (2012, SoftMaker) and Karin Pro (2019, SoftMaker).

His 1890 catalog has an extensive series of caps typefaces.
