ABOUT







C.F. Rühl

Leipzig-based foundry. It produced typefaces such as Neuwerk-Type (1908, Georg Schiller's blackletter), Breitkopf-Fraktur (original by JGI Breitkopf, ca. 1760, redone in 1912), Alte Schwabacher, Diadem (1912, a blackletter by Georg Schiller), Neudeutsch, and Elementar-Deutsch (1911, a blackletter by Georg Schiller).

C.F. Rühl is perhaps best known in the Hebrew community for its Frank Rühl typeface for Hebrew. The original Frank Rühl was designed in 1908 by Rafael Frank in collaboration with Auto Rühl of the C. F. Rühl foundry. A final version was released in 1910. Many Israeli books, newspapers and magazines use Frank Rühl as their main body text typeface in the 20th century. Many digital versions of this font exist. In 2016, Yanek Iontef designed the free Google Font Frank Ruhl Libre for Latin in Hebrew. Iontef's extension and modernization has five styles.
