ABOUT







Arno Drescher

Type designer (b. Auerbach, Germany, 1882, d. Braunschweig, 1971) who studied at the Akademie für Kunstgewerbe in Dresden, and became professor there in 1920. During World War II, Arno Drescher was director of the Akademie für graphische Künste und Buchgewerbe in Leipzig. After a period as freelance designer, he finally moved to Braunschweig in 1960.

Drescher is best known for his large geometric Super Grotesk family (Schriftguss, 1930). The list of his typefaces:

  • Appell (1933, Schriftguss).
  • Arabella (1936, Ludwig Wagner) and Arabella Favorit (1939, Ludwig Wagner). A cursive pair of typefaces. Digital revivals include Arabella (ca. 1999) by Dieter Steffmann and Arabella Pro (2006) by Ralph M. Unger.
  • Drescher Eilschrift (1934, Wilhelm Woelmer).
  • Drescher Versalien (1927, Schriftguss). Aka Drescher Initials. An open lineale titling typeface.
  • Duplex (1930, Typoart and 1937, Schriftguss). An all caps inline typefaces.
  • Energos (1932, Schriftguss). An early brush script. Revived by Ralph M. Unger in 2008 as Energia Pro (2008).
  • Fundamental Grotesk (1938-1939, Ludwig Wagner) and Fundamental Kursiv. In several weights.
  • Helion (Schriftguss, 1935, and Fonderie Française, 1935, a 3-d shaded outline font). Digitally revived by Ralph M. Unger in 2020 as RMU Helion.
  • Manutius Antiqua (1935, Ludwig Wagner), Manutius Kursiv (1935, Ludwig Wagner). This typeface is idenitical to Johannes Wagner's Antiqua 505 (1955).
  • Milo (1940, Schriftguss). A shadow typeface.
  • Onyx (1936, Schelter & Giesecke). A multiline art deco titling typeface.
  • Schreibmeister Kursiv (1958, at Ludwig Wagner). A formal cursive font. Schreibmeister (2021) is Ralph Unger's interpretation.
  • Super Grotesk (1930, Schriftguss). This geometric typeface family was revived at FontShop in 1999 by Svend Smital as FF Super Grotesk, and at Bitstream in 2001 by Nicolai Gogoll as Drescher Grotesk BT. Super Grotesk Schmalfett (1933) was revived in 2020 by Ralph M. Unger as RMU Gong.
  • Super Blickfang (1932, Schriftguss), Super Elektrik (1931, Schriftguss), Super Reflex (1931, Schriftguss). For a digital revival, see FF Super.
