ABOUT







Otto Eckmann

Born in Hamburg, 1865, died in Badenweiler, 1902. He was a painter, graphic artist and type designer, who did some graphic design for the magazines "Pan" (from 1895 onwards) and "Jugend" (from 1896 onwards). Otto Eckmann's work from around 1900 for Klingspor includes his Munch Jugendstil style typeface from 1901 simply called Eckmann or Eckmann-Schrift (1900, Jugendstil font at the Rudhardsche foundry), his famous Rudhardsche Initialen, and Fette Eckmann (1902). Digital versions of this exist at Linotype (asEckmann Com), Delbanco (as DS Eckmann Schrift), Ralph Unger (Schmuckinitialen, 2009, and Initials RMU One, 2012), Bitstream (where it is called Freeform 710), Elsner&Flake (Eckmann EF), URW, Brendel/Softmaker (as Etienne Regular), and Dieter Steffmann (an excellent free font called Rudelsberg; Steffmann has an accompanying Jugendstil Ornamente).
