ABOUT







Friedrich Poppl

German scribe and calligrapher (b. Soborten, Czechoslovakia, 1923, d. Wiesbaden, 1982), and designer of several text families, such as Poppl-Fraktur (1986), Poppl-Antiqua, Poppl-College (1981), Poppl-Exquisit (1970), Poppl-Nero (1982, his last face), Poppl-Laudatio (1982; see the clones OPTI Peach (Castcraft) and Poem Lavish (Softmaker)), Poppl-Pontifex (1974), and Poppl-Residenz (1977, classic calligraphy). These typefaces can be bought at Berthold.

Revivals: His neo-gothic typeface Saladin was later digitized and expanded by Patrick Griffin as Lionheart (2006, Canada Type). Hip Hop NF (2007) is a bouncy retro typeface based on Friedrich Poppl's Dynamische Antiqua (1960, Stempel). Elfort (2009, Iza W, Intellecta Design) is a calligraphic revival of work by Poppl. Poppl Stretto (1969) was at the basis of a revival by Canada Type called Wonder Brush (2012, Kevin Allan King and Patrick Griffin). Poppl Fraktur was revived and modernized by Ralph Unger as Parler Fraktur in 2018.
