ABOUT







Schriftgiesserei A. Numrich \& Co [Adam Numrich]

Leipzig-based type foundry, est. 1885 by Adam Numrich (who was employed by C. Kloberg at the time), taken over by Bauersche Giesserei in 1912 (or 1927?). Its first manager was Emil Moll, who was later joined by Bruno Diesel in that role. In its book Leipziger Fraktur (1906), a nice readable Leipziger Fraktur is shown in 13 weights, accompanied by four sets of Initialen. Numrich's typefaces include several sets of music notation symbols, Leipziger Fraktur (1906; see also Bauersche Giesserei, 1909), Breite Leipziger Fraktur, Universitäts-Antiqua, Chic (ca. 1909), and International (1902, blackletter).

Bauernschrift (1906, also called Fritz-Reuter-Schrift) was designed by Max Fröhlich. It appeared at Bauersche Giesserei in 1911. Image of Romana Initialen by Numrich.
