ABOUT







Emil Rudolf Weiß

German typographer, graphic artist, book artist, painter, type designer, poet and teacher, b. 1875, Lahr, d. 1942, Meersburg. Weiss made Weiss Roman in 1926, now an Adobe typeface. He also created Weiss-Fraktur (1909, commercialized in 1913 by Bauersche Giesserei, and revived in 2004 by Petra Heidorn and Manfred Klein), Weiss-Fraktur Kursiv (1923-1924, Bauer), Weiss Antiqua (1928; this is W 690 Roman at SoftMaker, Emilia (2016) at Ralph M. Unger, and Weiss Antiqua at URW; in 2019, Rutherford Craze did his own revival), Weiss Lapidar mager (1931, revived as Weiss Lapidar in 2002 by Dieter Steffmann), Neue Weiss-Fraktur (1935), Lichte Initialen (1935, revived by Manfred Klein in 2005 as WeissGotnitials), Weiss-Gotisch (1936, a Textura typeface at Bauer, revived by Petra Heidorn in 2004 under the same name, by Delbanco as DS-Weiss-Gotisch, and by Ralph Unger as Emilia Gotisch in 2016), Weiss-Kapitale (1931), Weiss-Rundgotisch (1937, Bauer, digitized by Fraktur.de, and in 2009 by Nick Curtis as Garmisch Rund NF), by Elsner and Flake as Weiss Rundgotisch, and by Softmaker as Gothic, and Weiss Rundgotisch Inititalen (1939), all at the Bauersche Giesserei. At Hansestadt Letter Foundry we find Rundgotisch and Uhlen Rundgotisch (1937), the latter becoming a Monotype font in 1938. His Weiß Initials (Series I, II, II Bold, III) from the 1920's have been digitized as Wellsbrook Initials SG (2004, Spiece Graphics), URW Weiss Titling, and Quadrivium NF (Nick Curtis).

In 2011, Gerald Cinamon published E.R. Weiss: The Typography of an Artist (Oldham: Incline Press).

Bio at Linotype, and at DdS. Footnote: Many textbooks incorrectly credit Weiss with Memphis (Stempel, 1929)---these include Mac McGrew, Rookledge, and Jaspert&Berry. Memphis was made by Rudolf Wolf.
