ABOUT







Karl Klimsch

Type designer, born in 1867 according to some sources [this must be wrong!]. He created Flinsch-Germanisch (1876, Flinsch), a blackletter face. In 1877, he created some decorative typefaces at Klinkhardt, called Zierschriften. One of his ornamental typefaces from 1869 was revived by Paul Lloyd as the free fonts Saraband Lettering and Saraband Initials (2002). In 1878, he published Zierschriften von Karl Klimsch Band I. Dover republished two books by this author: 2,100 Victorian Monograms (1994), and Florid Victorian Ornament (1977).
