ABOUT







Kurt Liebing

German type designer who made mostly blackletter typefaces: Liebing-Fraktur (1912, Gottfried Böttger, Berthold, Poppelbaum). He also made Liebing-Type (1909, H. Berthold, G. Böttger; aka Elite Gotisch; digitally revived as Liebing Type by Gerhard Helzel, and as TbC Liebing Type by Chiron (2014)) and Lichte Liebing-Type (1916, H. Berthold, G. Böttger), both blackletter designs.

Typefaces done at Wagner & Schmidt: Eleonore (AG für Schriftguss), Elite Gotisch, Froben Gotisch (Haas), Liebing Gotisch (Schriftguss; revived in 2016 by Peter Wiegel as CAT Liebing Gotisch). In many cases, several typefoundries sold the same type but possibly under different names.
