ABOUT







Ernst Bentele

German author of Schrift geschrieben, gezeichnet und angewandt. Ein Lehrbuch für Schriftenmaler, Graphiker und sonstige schriftgestaltende Berufe (1952, Karl Gröner Verlag, Ulm-Söflingen), a guided tour of writing styles from constructed and calligraphed blackletter to written and drawn oldstyle, ornamented letters, and geometric grotesques. Some of his alphabets are shown in Hoffmann's Schriftatlas (1952). Alphabets by Bentele include Frankengold and Wechselstrich Handschrift. His alphabets provided inspiration to many digital era type designers:

  • AR Types designed Bentele Unziale.
  • Minjoo Ham revived Freely Drawn Italic and then went on to develop that typeface further into a layerable multi-color typeface, Teddy (2017, Fust & Friends).
  • Alejandro Paul (Sudtipos) revived Freely Drawn Italic as Bowling Script in 2014.
  • Alejandro Paul has another revival, Semilla (2011).
  • Perigord (David Nalle, 1993) is inspired by a Carolingian alphabet drawn by Bentele.
