ABOUT







Eduard Ege

München-based painter and graphic designer who designed 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 these typefaces:

  • Basalt (1926). A pre art deco all caps typeface.
  • Ege-Schrift (1921, Genzsch&Heyse). Jaspert, Berry and Johnson mention 1927. Seemann says 1923. Ege Schrift NF (2011, Nick Curtis) is a faithful revival of Ege-Schrift according to Curtis.
  • Ege Schmuck (1922, Genzsch&Heyse): ornaments for the Deutsche Druckschrift (Heinz König, 1888). A digitization and extension called DeutscherSchmuck was done by Manfred Klein and Petra Heidorn in 2004. Manfred added Druckschrift Initialen also in 2004.
  • Fiori Schmuck (for C.E. Weber): floral decorations.
