ABOUT







Heinrich (Heinz) Keune

Heinz Keune (possibly Keune von Waldheim) was born in 1881 in Hannover, and died in 1946 in Berlin. He was a signpainter in Hannover and Leipzig and, from 1903 onwards, a freelance graphic designer in Weimar and Berlin. From 1908 until 1910, he studied in Leipzig under H. Steiner-Prag and H. Delitsch before returning to Hannover in 1911. In 1915 he became a professor at the Königlichen Kunstschule in Berlin. From 1918 until 1920, he taught at the Akademische Hochschule für bildende Künste at Berlin Charlottenburg. From 1920 on, he taught at the Kunstgewerbe und Handwerkerschule in Berlin-Ost.

All his typefaces were designed at Schelter&Giesecke, between 1900 and 1909. He created Rosenzierat Serien 534 und 535 (1905), Mimosenzierat (1909), Edda (1900, late art nouveau style), Wallenstein (1904), Lichte Wallenstein (1904), Wittelsbach (1903, German expressionist face), Habsburg (1903, German expressionist face), Maria Theresia (1903), Ovid (1903, art nouveau), Rousseau (1905, travel poster script face), Wettin (1902, art nouveau).

Digital revivals: Ovid was revived by Oliver Weiss as WF Ovid in 2020. Edda has many revivals, including one by Ralph M. Unger as Edda Pro (2008). See also Huggy (2017, Michael Parson).

His last name is Heune at MyFonts, Fontshop and URW.
