ABOUT







Corvinus

Corvinus is a didone family developed between 1932 and 1935 by Imre Reiner, consisting of Corvinus, Corvinus italic, Corvinus semibold, Corvinus semibold, Corvinus bold, and Corvinus Skyline. It was published by Ludwig&Mayer and separately by Bauersche Giesserei. Lanston's 1948 font Glamour was based on it. Many digital versions exist:

  • Group Type (Mark Solsburg, Ann Pomeroy): Corvinus Skyline (1991).
  • Font Bureau (Jane Patterson): Skyline was commissioned from Font Bureau by Condé Nast specifically for Traveler magazine. In 1992, Patterson designed the headline typeface Skyline Bold Condensed.
  • P22/Lanston: LTC Glamour (2006, Colin Kahn), based in first instance on Lanston's 1948 font Glamour.
  • The Font Company: Corvinus Skyline (1993).
  • Dennis Ortiz-Lopez: OL Corvinus Bold Condensed (1993), OL Corvinus Versailles.
  • FontHaus: APCorvinus Skyline (Ann Pomeroy). It is this version that later became Group Type's through Ann's association with that foundry.
  • Opticast/Castcraft: OPTICorvinus-Skyline.
  • Image Graphics: Corvinus Skyline.
  • Softmaker (Martin Kotulla): C794 Roman.
