ABOUT







Carl Albert Fahrenwaldt

German designer (b. Stettin, 1864, d. Stuttgart, 1941). He studied lithography from 1878-1882, and worked as a lithographer in Stuttgart from 1891-1895. After that, until 1939, he was a free-lance graphic designer in Stuttgart. He made these typefaces:

  • Edelweiß (1936-1937, Schriftguss): an art nouveau typeface.
  • Hohenzollern (1902, Bauersche Giesserei); a blackletter face. For a revival, see the free font CAT Hohenzollern (2014) by Peter Wiegel, and Hohenzollern (2004, Petra Heidorn).
  • Imperial (Bauersche Giesserei): a fat version of Hohenzollern.
  • Mainzer Fraktur (1901, H. Berthold AG and Bauer). The Mainzer Fraktur was digitized by Gerhard Helzel, and also by Markwart Lindenthal (Fraktur.de). A free version, Berthold Mainzer Fraktur, is due to Peter Wiegel (OFL). Gerhard Helzel made a commercial version.
  • A school script typeface dated 1901. For a free digital version of this, see Peter Wiegel's Helvetia Verbundene (2010).
  • Minister (1929, Schriftguss). This family comes with Antiqua and Kursiv in various weights, as well as Minister Initlen. Adobe and Linotype have their own digital versions. The Minister family comes with a white on black circle titling font called Minister Kreis Versalien (1933). For further developments of Minister, see, e.g., David Bergsland's Biblia and Biblia Serif (2017).
  • Prominent (1936, Schriftguss): a beautiful set of filled-in open initials.
  • Symbol (1933): an engraved set of initials.
Ademo (2011, Andreas Seidel) is a shaded 3d caps typeface based on two designs of Fahrenwaldt done for Schriftguss in 1931-1932.
