ABOUT







Otto Hupp

German type designer, painter, Gutenberg researcher and heraldy specialist, b. Düsseldorf 1859, d. 1947, Oberschleissheim. Mainly specializing in blackletter. His typefaces:

  • At Genzsch&Heyse (Hamburg, München), he did Heraldisch (1910), Hupp-Neudeutsch or Neudeutsche Schrift (1899-1900, see revivals by Gerhard Helzel and Petra Heidorn (2004)), Baltisch (1903, extension of Hupp-Neudeutsch), Numismatisch (1900; revived (?) by P22 as P22 Numismatic), Liturgisch (1906, Klingspor, revived by Dieter Steffmann in 2002, Kristian Sics in 2013, Eugen Kaelin in 1988, as well as by Gerhard Helzel), and Hupp-Gotisch.
  • At Rudhardsche Giesserei, Offenbach am Main, which in 1906 became Gebr. Klingspor, he made more blackletter typefaces, such as Hupp-Fraktur (1906-1911), Hupp Fraktur Fett (1910), Hupp Unziale (1909), Heraldisch (1910), Hupp Antiqua (1909: this is a delightful display typeface with religious undertones), Hupp Antiqua Fett (1910), Hupp Schrägschrift (1922; others give the date 1927), and the display fonts Lichte und volle Tam-Tan, Keilschrift and Kegelschrift.
Noteworthy among modern digitizations are Hupp Fraktur (2016, Ralph M. Unger), Hupp Antiqua NF (2006, Nick Curtis) and DXS Otto Hupp Initials (2010, Dick Pape). In 2012, Dick Pape created LFD Alphabet Und Ornamente 216 which is based on Hupp's Modern German version of roman capitals, as seen in Alphabete und Ornamente (Frau Bassermann Nachfolger, Munich).

German biography by Wolfgang Hendlmeier from 1985: A, B, C. Scans of his blackletter alphabets: I, II, III, IV, V.
