ABOUT







Otto Weisert

Typefounder who ran the Schriftgiesserei Otto Weisert in Stuttgart. Designer of the prototypical Jugendstil font Arnold Boecklin in 1904, a typeface named after the Swis symbolist painter Arnold Böcklin. Arnold Boecklin is available at URW, Linotype, Adobe, Scangraphic, Mecanorma, and Softmaker [where it is known as Jugendstil]. A monolinear version was done in 2020 by Mario Feliciano, called Korrodi.

Otto Weisert also designed the blackletter typefaces 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.
