ABOUT







Peter A. Demeter

German designer (1875-1939) at Weber of the shaded roman capital typeface Holländisch (1922-1926, also published by Schriftguss), which comes in breit, fett and licht styles. He also made Demeter Schraffiert (1922, Schriftguss), and Fournier Geperlt (1922, Schriftguss; called Dresden when it was later published by BB&S in Chicago).

Mac McGrew writes: Demeter is a decorative, shaded letter produced by BB&S in 1925, by arrangement with Schriftguss A.-G. of Dresden, where it was designed by Peter A. Demeter. Serifs are leaf-like in form. This is one of a few German faces BB&S received in exchange for rights to the Cooper types. He adds: Dresden is a very decorative typeface designed by Peter A. Demeter for Schriftguss A.G. in Dresden and cut by BB&S in 1925 by arrangement with that firm, part of the deal by which the German company got rights to copy Cooper. In this face, the main strokes as well as the serifs are leaf-like.

Digital revivals include Baroque Pearl (2016, Ralph M. Unger).
