München-based painter and graphic designer who desiigned type for Genzsch&Heyse, b. 1893, Stuttgart, d. 1978, München. He studied under Julius Dietz at the Kunstgewerbeschule München, and studied as well at the Kunstgewerbeschule Stuttgart.

Eduard Ege made Basalt (1926, pre art deco), Ege-Schrift (1921, Genzsch&Heyse; Jaspert, Berry and Johnson mention 1927; Seemann says 1923). In 1922, he made the Schmuck (ornaments) for the Deutsche Druckschrift (Heinz König, 1888). A digitization and extension called DeutscherSchmuck was done by Manfred Klein and Petra Heidorn in 2004. Ege Schrift NF (2011, Nick Curtis) is a faithful revival of Ege-Schrift according to Curtis.
