ABOUT







Giesserei Carl Kloberg [Carl Kloberg]

Leipzig-based foundry of Carl (or Karl) Kloberg which was taken over by Berthold in 1922.

One of their house typefaces was Verzierte Schwabacher (1891) (Schwabacher Handtooled), which was revived in 2005 by Petra Heidorn as Schwabach Deko, with further fine-tuning still in 2005 by James Arboghast and Petra Heidorn in Verzierte Schwabacher. Related typefaces are Hermann-Gotisch by Herbert Thannhaeuser, 1934 and Peter Schlemihl, also known as Lichte Tiemann-Fraktur by Walter Tiemann, 1918-1921. Both were digitized by Dieter Steffmann.

House typefaces also include Leipziger Altfraktur (1912, mentioned by some as a Berthold face; revived by Gerhard Helzel), Bavaria-Buchschrift (ca. 1900), Bavaria-Brotschrift (ca. 1900), and Gotisch Enge (1882, Berthold).

In 1909, they published a 63-page specimen book, Spezial-Musterbuch für Buchdruckereien über moderne Schriften, Einfassungen, Messinglinien, Ornamente und Vignetten.
