Walter Tiemann

Famous German type designer, b. Delitzsch, 1876, d. Leipzig, 1951, who was active at Klingspor. He studied painting at the art academy in Leipzig. In 1898, Tiemann started working for various publishers, including S. Fischer, Reclam and Rütten&Loening. In 1903, he took up teaching at the Staatliche Akademie für Graphische Künste in Leipzig, where Jan Tschichold was one of his students [he was director of that school from 1920-1941 and from 1945-1946]. In 1907, Tiemann founded the Janus Presse with C. E. Poeschel. In 1946, he was awarded an honorary doctorate. Poster for BUGRA in 1914. Picture. Publications:

  • Georg Kurt Schauer Walter Tiemann. Ein Vermächtnis, Offenbach 1953.

Designer at Klingspor of these typefaces:

  • Daphnis (1929). Digital revival by Ralph M. Unger in 2016 as Daphnis.
  • Fichte Fraktur (1934-1939). This was originally called Hindenburg Fraktur. Revivals by Ralph M. Unger (as Fichte Fraktur, 2020), Delbanco (as DS Fichte Fraktur) and Gerhard Helzel (as Fichte Fraktur).
  • Kleist Fraktur (1928). Kleist Fraktur was revived by Dieter Steffmann in 2002 as Kleist Fraktur and by Delbanco as DS Kleist Fraktur. Ralph Unger's version from 2010 is simply called Kleist Fraktur.
  • Narziss (1921), based in part on earlier types of Pierre-Simon Fournier. The Font Bureau font Narcissus (1995) was based on this work. Further digitizations include Narziss (2018, Ralph M. Unger), and Narcissus SG (Open and Solid) (Jim Spiece).
  • Janus-Pressen-Schrift (with C. E. Poeschel, 1906). Note: he founded the Janus Presse with C. E. Poeschel in 1907.

  • Tiemann-Gotisch (1924).
  • Orpheus (1926-1928, Klingspor). This refined and elegant roman family languished for many years until its grand digital revival in 2011 by Patrick Griffin and Kevin Allan King at Canada Type, called Orpheus Pro.
  • Euphorion (1935-1936). This was the italic of Orpheus. It too was revived digitally at Canada Type in their Orpheus Pro package.
  • Offizin (1952).
  • Peter-Schlemihl-Schrift (1914). Also called Lichte Tiemann Fraktur. Revived by Dieter Steffmann in 2002, and by Ralph M. Unger for Profonts as Peter Schlemihl in 2008.
