ABOUT







Hermann Delitsch

Typography professor in Leipzig, b. Leipzig, 1869, d. Leipzig, 1937. He taught at Leipzig's Akademie für Graphische Künste und Buchgewerbe. One of his students was Jan Tschichold (in 1919). His typefaces:

  • Delitsch Antiqua (1911, J. Klinkhardt). This is Antiguo Manuscrito at the Richard Gans Foundry. The latter was digitized by Paulo W (Intellecta Design) as Gans Antigua Manuscrito (2006). Other typefaces based on Delitsch Antiqua were created by Manfred Klein (Delitsch Initialen, 2004) and Petra Heidorn (Delitsch Antiqua, 2004). Both could be found here (dead link).
  • Kanzlei Fraktur, or Delitsch Kanzlei (1913, J. Klinkhardt).
  • Ramses Antiqua (1912, J. Klinkhardt). This Antiqua typeface was revived in 2012 by Chiron as TbC Ramses-Antiqua.

Author of Schribschriftnormen (1928, K.W. Hiersemann), Delitzsch-Antiqua: eine künstlerische Schriftgarnitur mit Initialen und Schmuck für zeitgemässe Buchausstattung (1915). Klingspor link.
