ABOUT







Fritz Helmuth Ehmcke

Born in 1878 in Hohensalza, Ehmcke died in 1965 in Widdersberg. Graphic artist, book and type designer, and professor. From 1893 until 1897, he studied lithography in Berlin, and from 1899-1901 he studied at the Kunstgewerbemuseums Berlin. With Georg Belwe and Friedrich W. Kleukens, he founded the Steglitzer Werkstatt in 1900. He taught from 1903 at the Kunstgewerbeschule Düsseldorf, and from 1913-1938 at the Kunstgewerbeschule München . He ran the Rupprecht Presse in Munich from 1913-1934. Since 1941, he worked for the Bund für Deutsche Schrift, which is partially concerned with blackletter type. Finally, from 1946-1948, he was professor at the Hochschule der bildenden Künste München. He designed these typefaces:

  • Ehmcke Flinsch (1908, Bauersche Giesserei).
  • Ehmcke Antiqua (1908-1909, Flinsch). A beautiful Belle Epoque font. Linotype sells the digital version as Carlton, after acquiring ITC and Letraset which had digitized Carlton in 1983, based on a Stephenson Blake typeface from the 1910s. It appears that Ehmcke Antiqua predates that Stephenson Blake face. For another revival, see Antiqua Roman (2015, Yuanchen Jiang).
  • Ehmcke Kursiv (1910, Flinsch).
  • Ehmcke Fraktur (1910, Offizin W. Drugulin and 1912, at D. Stempel). The halbfett is from 1917.
  • Ehmcke Rustika (1914, Stempel).
  • Ehmcke Schwabacher (1914, D. Stempel; some mention the dates 1916 and 1920; see also Ehmcke Schwabacher Zierbuchstaben; the Delbanco revival is called DS-Ehmcke Schwabacher). The halbfett is from 1915.
  • Ehmcke Mediaeval (1922, Stempel). The kursiv is from 1923 and the halbfett from 1924.
  • Ehmcke Latein (1925, Ludwig&Mayer).
  • Ehmcke Brotschrift (1927, Ruprecht Presse).
  • Ehmcke Elzevier (1927, L. Wagner).
