ABOUT







Carl Ernst Pöschel

German printer and typographer (b. Leipzig, 1874, d. Scheidegg, 1944). In 1900, he joins his father's printing shop, Poeschel&Trepte, in Leipzig. In 1907, he starts up Janus-Presse with Walter Tiemann, the first private press in Germany. In 1918, Janus-Presse is taken over by Insel Publishing House. His fonts include Janus-Presse-Schrift (1907, with Walter Tiemann) and Winckelmann-Antiqua (1920). He published "Antiqua als deutsche Normalschrift" (with F.L. Habbel, Berlin, 1942). He is said to have brought the blackletter typeface Caslon-Gotisch in 1904 from England to Leipzig---the latter typeface showed up in the VEB Typoart catalog.
