ABOUT







Franzis Verlag GmbH

German publisher of the Windows XP Profischriften 2003 CD, which since 2004 has been entitled 1.800 Schriften für Windows (20 Euro at Amazon). Ulrich Stiehl studied this company, and offers a list of name analogies with commercial fonts here. This CD contains most fonts of the "Berthold Types" collection and also fonts by Adobe, Monotype, Linotype and other foundries. Stiehl writes that "the Franzis CD includes many fonts not contained in the MegaFont CD" [by Softmaker]. Stiehl's analyis shows that the 1774 font CD contains (i) Classic Fonts (copyright ClassicFontCorporation, USA RWE, typefaces of the former H. Berthold AG), and (ii) Modern Fonts and Display Fonts (copyright Christine Mauerkirchner and Rainer Grunert RWE, typefaces of Adobe, Agfa/Monotype, Linotype, Bitstream, Compugraphic and others). Stiehl says: Franzis Verlag GmbH was formerly a reputable independent technical book publishing house in Munich. It is located today in Poing, and publishes this above fonts CD which has fonts by "PrimaFonts alias ClassicFontCorporation alias Christine Mauerkirchner alias Rainer Grunert".
