Heinrich Wallau

German printer, b. 1852, Mainz, d. 1925, Zwingelberg. Author of Aesthetik der Druckschrift, which served as a motivation and example for Rudolf Koch, when Koch designed his Wallau blackletter family starting in 1924. This project lasted until 1936, with the rotunda or Rundgotisch typefaces magere Wallau (1931-1933), fette Wallau (1933-1934), Schmale Wallau (1933-1934), and halbfette Wallau (1933-1936). There were also various Versalien (Antiqua-Versalien, Fraktur-Versalien and Schmuck-Versalien) along the way. [The link leads to a short bio by Wolfgang Hendlmeier, written in 1987.]

Digital versions of Wallau include RMU Wallau (2019, Ralph M. Unger), Wallau No1 Pro, Wallau No2 Pro by SoftMaker, Alter Littera's Wallau (2012), Wallau (1996, by Delbanco; called Wal at PrimaFont), Wallau (by Gerhard Helzel), DS Wallau (Dieter Steffmann), Wallaby (SoftMaker), and the 2002 series WallauDeutsch-Bold, WallauRundgotisch-Heavy, WallauRundgotischOsF-Heavy, WallauUnzial-Bold and WallauZierBold (2002) by Dieter Steffmann.
