ABOUT







Authentic [Julius Wiescher]

German foundry, est. 2009 by Julius Wiescher (b. 1991), who is the youngest son of famous type designer Gert Wiescher. His font Thin Pen (2009) is based on an ancestor of the German DIN-Schrift. The font was traced with a plastic template on transparent paper, scanned and worked over carefully to keep the handmade, authentic touch. Other fonts by him: DonJulio and Donna Julia (2008, Autographis, calligraphic script fonts made with Gert), Flatpen (2008, Autographis, with Gert), Norm Pen (2011, based on an ancestor of DIN Schrift), Bold Pen (2011, bold version of Norm Pen), Groucho (2011, a high-contrast flowing script), Authentic (2011, a connected copperplate script), Oldhand (2011, shaky handwriting), Holz Caps (2011, an irregular wood type simulation face), Poing (2011, a flowing calligraphic script), Cri Cri (2011, slab serif comic book face).
