F. Schweimanns

Independent type designer who created typefaces for D. Stempel when he lived in Hannover, Germany. His typefaces, all published by D. Stempel AG, include

  • Biedermeier Reklame (1906).
  • Diana (1909) and Diana halbfett (1910).
  • Frankfurt Serie I and Frankfurt Serie II (1905). Blackletter types.
  • Graziella, Graziella fett and Graziella schmalfett (1905).
  • Korso (1913). Cursive style.
  • Künstlerschrift (1902) and Künstlerschrift halbfett (1901). Art nouveau.
  • Maria Antoinette (1905).
  • Moderne Reklame (1901). Art nouveau style.
  • Propaganda (1901). Art nouveau style.
  • Wodan schmalfett (1902) and Wodan licht (ca. 1905).

Fr. Ad. Becker and F. Schweimanns coauthored Die moderne Schrift.

Camera (1936, Intertype) is described by McGraw as a novel cursive letter with light, monotone strokes suitable for use on personal stationery and announcements. The design is based on Korso (1913). Korso was revived in digital form by Coen Hofmann at URW++ in 2016 as Marli. It is a vintage script that feels a bit forced.
