ABOUT







Friedrich Neugebauer

Austrian scribe and calligrapher, born in 1911. Harald Suess wrote about him in die Deutsche Schrift in 1996: I, II, III.

Author of The Mystic Art of Written Forms: An Illustrated Handbook for Lettering (Salzburg: Neugebauer Press, 1980), and Bibliophile, Buchgraphik, Schriftgraphik (Salzburg, Austria: Verlag Neugebauer Press, 1983).

Typefaces influenced by his style:

  • Avalon (1995), a calligraphic typeface by Richard Lipton.
  • Frauen [Roman, Script] (2015, Lucas Sharp, Incubator). A calligraphic pair. The Roman is partially based on the calligraphy of Friedrich Neugebauer [on the cover of an almanac of Berlin debutantes published in 1945 titled, Die schönsten Frauen der Welt], and partly Lucas's own creation. Production assistance from Wei Huang.
