ABOUT







Julius Klinger

Klinger was born in Dornbach near Vienna in 1876. He studied at Technologischen Gewerbemuseum in Vienna. In 1895, he found his first employment with the Vienna fashion magazine Wiener Mode. In 1896, he moved to München where he worked as an illustrator for the Meggendorfer Blätter and other magazines. From 1897 to 1902 he was a collaborator at the famous Jugendstil magazine Die Jugend. In 1897 he moved to Berlin, where he worked extensively as a commercial graphic artist until 1915. Together with the printing house Hollerbaum und Schmidt, he developed a new fashion of functional poster design that soon gained him international reputation. In 1912 he designed the poster for the Rund um Berlin air show in Johannisthal. In Berlin he also contributed to Das kleine Witzblatt, Lustige Blätter and Das Narrenschiff magazines. Beginning in 1918, Klinger designed the ads for Tabu cigarette rolling paper. According to Viennese police records, Klinger, who was Jewish, was deported to Minsk on June 2, 1942 together with his wife Emilie and killed the same year. Others have him die in Vienna in 1950.

His typefaces include Klinger Antiqua (1919, Emil Gursch) and Klinger Type (1925-1927, Schriftguss).

Digitizations of his work: Jim Spiece created SG Veranda Poster (+Caps) in 2001. Its elegant letters go back to Julius Klinger and Willy Willrab. Based on fabric lettering by Klinger from 1925, Andrew Leman created a type family called Julius Klinger (2003). Nick Curtis designed Toot Sweet NF after a 1912 poster design by Klinger.
