Slavoboj Tusar

Czech type designer, 1883-1950. MyFonts writes: Slavoboj Tusar was the brother of Czech prime minister in the 1920s and 30s. His typeface [note: Tusar Antiqua] was introduced at the Exposition of Decorative Arts in Paris in 1925, revised and manufactured by Lanston-Monotype in 1926 and redesigned and digitized in 2004 [note: by Frantisek Storm, as Tusar Text, Tusar Book, Tusar Deco]. Tusar's advertising and typographic activities and writings are unique inspiring sources for today's young designers. Tusar Antiqua (or Tusarova antikva, 1924-1925) was originally cast by Prumyslova Tiskaran in Prague. The Monotype version, a year later, was slightly different. Tusarova antikva was made for Wiener's Boulevard rare book, which was exhibited in Paris at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, along with Preissig's and Svolinsky's books. Tusar's metal alphabet was deliberately destroyed after the book was printed.
