Ossip I. Lehmann Type Foundry [Johannes Lehmann]

Foundry in St. Petersburg in the late 19th century, est. 1854. Their typefaces include Renata (1901), Gasetny Chorny (Newspaper Black), Black Grotesk (1874), Yelisavetinsky (1904-1907, a didone family for Baltic, Cyrillic and Latin with shapes that go back to the Russian Academy of Sciences in the 18th century, after designs by Alexander Leo; for a free digital revival, see Elisabethische (2018) by Oleg Matison), Diamant (1937, a 3d shadow headline lineale), Obiknovennaya (1940s) and Obiknovennaya Novaya (1940s).

Revivals include Standard Poster (a Paratype font by V. Yefimov, 1992, which was based on a design from 1986 at Polygraphmash, and which in turn was inspired by the fat didone styles of the Ossip Lehmann type foundry), Chekhovskoy (2017, by Marath Salychow), Elisabethische (by Marath Salychow, 2018), and Elizabeth (Paratype).

In 2013, Vasily Biryukov published the Peignotian typeface Romanovsky at Paratype: Romanovsky is a font developed on the base of samples from the catalogue of Ossip Lehmann foundry in Sankt Petersburg. Original Latin design that was used for Romanovsky can be found in Feder Grotesk by Jacob Erbar. The current digital font is not a scanned version of Lehman's samples but a newly drawn typeface that differs from the original in many details.

In 2018, Albert Kapitonov and Dmitry Kirsanov revived the early 20th-century typeface Lehmann Egyptian from the Berthold and Lehmann type foundries in St. Petersburg, and published it at Paratype.
