70th Birthday laudatio
[Manfred Klein]

On his 70th birthday, Apostrophe summarizes his contributions, and called him the Mark Twain of type. The quotation repeated: "I have really fond memories of Manfred's earliest works, some stuff he did for Apply, Alphabets, and Fontshop. That was the early- to mid- 1990s, when type was still making the transition from photolettering and punches onto this new digital platform. Every old type and its grandfather were being scanned and digitized in all the swift intensity of serial killers, as if time were running out on us. Business concepts were being built around computer letters, territories were being marked, borders drawn... and into all this comes the work of Manfred Klein, like a breath of lake breeze to make light of everything. His Quill script and its hilarious dingbats were among the first "deviate" shockers in type originals. His Birds and Witches dingbats will in my mind always be the very first "funnybats" ever made. Also I shouldn't forget to credit him with the very first digitization I have ever seen of Gutenberg's type. There's been many attempts at it after that, but none had that same first-time effect on me. I'm having a hard time believing that the man's turning seventy now. I can't help but feel a little cheated. I've only known of him for less than 8 or 9 years. I've always thought of him as a star, so imagine if I knew him in his thirties, fourties, or fifties. Still, I was lucky enough to learn of him, learn from him, even communicate with him... all that makes me feel less cheated, and somehow much more life-wise. My one-liner about Manfred, if I were ever asked to compose one, would be this: The Mark Twain of type is a German called Manfred Klein." [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

Biography
[Manfred Klein]

Prolific Frankfurt-based designer, born in Berlin in 1932, who studied typesetting at the Kurier in Berlin, later in Typografische AG (a work-group). His teacher was Berthold's G. G. Lange (starting in 1951). He graduated in advertising in 1958. Until 1982, he worked as a Creative Director and then as a freelancer for several companies, including Stempel and Monotype. Since 1990, prolific font creator, with fonts appearing at Fontshop, Fonthaus, Elsner and Flake, Alphabets Inc, Apply Design Group, and Medienwerkstatt Muehlacker (school fonts). His fonts are partly commercial and partly freeware. They are invariably stylish, original, and often funny. He looks at type as an essential part of visual communication, and that theme unifies his work. It gives his typefaces a unique cachet. As a result, Klein is one of my favorite type designers.

He writes about this as follows: "Typografie sehe ich - anders als viele Typografen - aus dem übergeordneten Blickwinkel der Kommunikationswirkung, als Teil aller visuellen Kommunikation. / Einflüsse durch David Ogilvy, von dessen Auffassungen zu Textund Typo ich wesentlich geprägt wurde, durch G. G. Lange, Imre Reiner, Tschichold natürlich, aber auch durch Picasso oder Mies van der Rohe (less is more!). Und durch Musik, speziell den Jazz!" [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

Birds
[Manfred Klein]

Manfred explains his fascination with birds by his quest for freedom and the influence of cartoonist Saul Steinberg (b. Romania, 1914- d. USA, 1999): "Na, erst war ich immer neidisch auf die Tierchen, weil sie so wunderbar fliegen. Die Tauben nervten, besonders auf dem Markusplatz. Alle Beflügelten haben den höchst möglichen Freiheitsgrad, mehr als jede Airline. Dann sah ich mal, wie Saul Steinberg Piepmätze zeichnet. ER ist der MAESTRO genialer Vögel, ich bin nur sein Nachmacher."

Christian Heinrich Kleukens

German type designer (b. Achim, 1880, d. Darmstadt, 1954), brother of the more famous "Kleukens", Friedrich Wilhelm (1878-1956). In 1907, the two brothers started running the Ernst-Ludwig-Presse, the private printing shop of the duke Ernst Ludwig von Hessen. Burte-Fraktur by C.H. Kleukens was cut in 1928 for Mainzer Presse by Gustav Eichenauer, Rudolf Koch's favourite punchcutter. It was revived in 2003 by Manfred Klein. He also added a handwritten freestyle version, Burtine 2003, and another interpretation, Burtinomatic (2004).

Judith Type (1923), a hookish hellish German expressionist typeface, was at the basis of Judith Type (2007, Nick Curtis) and Holofernes NF (2007).

Civilité, a French cursive

A brief explanation and discussion of Civilité, the script typeface made by Robert Granjon in 1556 as a typical "French cursive". It was imitated and extended by Aimé Tavernier (1559), Hendrik van den Keere (1575), Richard Breton (1597), Philippe Danfrie (1597), Jean de Tournes (1598), Fleury Bourriquant (early 17th century: his type was called Civilité honneste), Pierre-Simon Fournier (1766), Matthias Rosart (1777, the Gros Romain Civilité), and Morris Fuller Benton (1922). Many have since created their own versions. We cite a few of the contemporary type designers: Klaus Burkhardt, Manfred Klein, Stephen Moye (CiviRegular), Ingo Zimmermann (almost a copy of Moye's version), Richard Beatty, Hans J. Zinken (civi4, 1996), Hermann Zapf (1984: Zapf Civilité), George Thomas (CivilitéMJ), and Tim Ryan (CivilitéTR). [Google] [More]  ⦿

CybaPeeCreations (or: Typoasis)
[Petra Heidorn]

CybaPee is the nom de plume of Petra Heidorn who lives in Hamburg. She has created may typefaces (listed below) and has cooperated with many on interesting projects. She is undoubtedly best known for her successful web site Typoasis, where one can download her own creations, and those of her many friends. Petra is also heavily involved in several attempts to revive blackletter fonts, in cooperation with Manfred Klein, Dieter Steffmann, Paul Lloyd and others. She organized several revivals of the typefaces of Rudolf Koch and Ernst Schneidler. She also managed the extensive web presence of Manfred Klein.

Derivatives of Bodoni
[Manfred Klein]

Even though Manfred has dabbled in the creation of most styles of text type, he is at his best when he lets his creativity loose on a great classical type design. Of the hundreds he could have chosen to play with, Manfred always returns to Bodoni, the most geometric of all text faces, and therefore the easiest to draw a moustache on.

Eduard Ege

München-based painter and graphic designer who desiigned type for Genzsch&Heyse, b. 1893, Stuttgart, d. 1978, München. He studied under Julius Dietz at the Kunstgewerbeschule München, and studied as well at the Kunstgewerbeschule Stuttgart.

Eduard Ege made Basalt (1926, pre art deco), Ege-Schrift (1921, Genzsch&Heyse; Jaspert, Berry and Johnson mention 1927; Seemann says 1923). In 1922, he made the Schmuck (ornaments) for the Deutsche Druckschrift (Heinz König, 1888). A digitization and extension called DeutscherSchmuck was done by Manfred Klein and Petra Heidorn in 2004. Ege Schrift NF (2011, Nick Curtis) is a faithful revival of Ege-Schrift according to Curtis.

Emil Rudolf Weiß

German typographer, graphic artist, book artist, painter, type designer, poet and teacher, b. 1875, Lahr, d. 1942, Meersburg. Weiss made Weiss Roman in 1926, now an Adobe typeface. He also created Weiss-Fraktur (1909, commercialized in 1913 by Bauersche Giesserei, and revived in 2004 by Petra Heidorn and Manfred Klein), Weiss-Fraktur Kursiv (1923-1924, Bauer), Weiss Antiqua (1928; this is W 690 Roman at SoftMaker and Weiss Antiqua at URW), Weiss Lapidar mager (1931, revived as Weiss Lapidar in 2002 by Dieter Steffmann), Neue Weiss-Fraktur (1935), Lichte Initialen (1935, revived by Manfred Klein in 2005 as WeissGotnitials), Weiss-Gotisch (1936, a Textura typeface at Bauer, revived by Petra Heidorn in 2004 under the same name, and by Delbanco as DS-Weiss-Gotisch), Weiss-Kapitale (1931), Weiss-Rundgotisch (1937, Bauer, digitized by Fraktur.de, and in 2009 by Nick Curtis as Garmisch Rund NF), by Elsner and Flake as Weiss Rundgotisch, and by Softmaker as Gothic, and Weiss Rundgotisch Inititalen (1939), all at the Bauersche Giesserei. At Hansestadt Letter Foundry we find Rundgotisch and Uhlen Rundgotisch (1937), the latter becoming a Monotype font in 1938. His Weiß Initials (Series I, II, II Bold, III) from the 1920's have been digitized as Wellsbrook Initials SG (2004, Spiece Graphics), URW Weiss Titling, and Quadrivium NF (Nick Curtis).

In 2011, Gerald Cinamon published E.R. Weiss: The Typography of an Artist (Oldham: Incline Press).

Bio at Linotype, and at DdS. Footnote: Many textbooks incorrectly credit Weiss with Memphis (Stempel, 1929)---these include Mac McGrew, Rookledge, and Jaspert&Berry.

Friedrich Hermann Ernst Schneidler

Type designer, teacher, publisher and calligrapher, b. Berlin (1882), d. Gundelfingen (1956). He worked initially with J.G. Schelter&Giesecke in Leipzig and C.E. Weber in Stuttgart. In the 1930s, he published his type designs with Bauer. From 1920 until 1948, he was head of the graphics division of the Akademie der bildenden Künste Stuttgart. His oeuvre resides now in the Klingspor Museum in Offenbach. He is famous for his Zentenar Fraktur, Schneidler Mediaeval and Legende. In general, due to his calligraphic tendencies, his types have great rhythm. In his era, he was at the top of his craft (in my view). A list and samples of his work. His faces, by foundry:

  • C.E. Weber: Deutsch Römisch (1923), Kontrast (1930, an art deco collection which was revived in 15 styles in 2007 by Iza W as Schneider (sic) Kontrast), Bayreuth (1932: this blackletter font was remade from a scan by Petra Heidorn in 2003 as Bayreuth-Black; for a variation, see Manfred Klein's Bayreuther-BlaXXL (2005); see also the free orphaned typeface Bayreuth), Suevia-Fraktur.
  • J.G. Schelter&Giesecke: Schneidler Schwabacher (1912-1913; revival in 2004 by Petra Heidorn), Schneidler Schwabach Initials (digitized by Manfred Klein in 2004 as SchneidlerSchwabachInitials), Buchdeutsch (1923), Buchdeutsch halbfett (1926), Schneidler-Deutsch [a blackletter revived in 2009 by Intellecta Design as Schneidler Halb Fette Deutsch], Schneidler Fraktur (1914-1916), Schneidler Kursiv (1921).
  • Bauersche Giesserei: Ganz Grobe Gotisch (1930): this was revived by Ralph Unger as (FontForum) Ganz Grobe Gotisch (2006, URW), by Dieter Steffmann as Ganz Grobe, by Manfred Klein as TypoasisBoldGothic (2003), by Mars Attacks as Grobe Hand (2012, free), by Paulo W as Schneidler Grobe Gotisch (2008), and by Petra Heidorn as Bayreuth.
  • Bauersche Giesserei: Graphik (aka Herald, 1934).
  • Bauersche Giesserei: Schneidler Old Style (or Bauer Text), 1936.
  • Bauersche Giesserei: Zentenar Fraktur (1937). So called to honor the 100th anniversary of Bauersche, est. 1837: Peter Wiegel (CAT Zentenaer Fraktur, 2014), Delbanco (DS Zentenar Fraktur), Ralph M. Unger (Zentenar Fraktur mager, halbfett, 2010) and Dieter Steffmann each have digital versions. See also Z690 Blackletter on the SoftMaker MegaFont XXL CD, 2002. Followed by Zeichen Zentenar Fraktur (1937; see also the 2007 digitization of the caps by AR Types entitled Zentenar Initialen).
  • Bauersche Giesserei: Zentenar Buchschrift (1937-1938). Digital version by Delbanco.
  • Bauersche Giesserei: Schneidler Mediaeval (1936). See URW Schneidler Mediaeval (2011).
  • Bauersche Giesserei: Schmalfette Gotisch. Revived as SchmalfetteGotisch in 2004 by Petra Heidorn and Manfred Klein, and extended by Manfred Klein to SchmaleGotischMK, also in 2004.
  • Bauersche Giesserei: Schneidler Initials (1937, a Trajan face). See the 2004 revival by Petra Heidorn as Schneidler Initialen, and Shango (1993, Castle Type), and Shango Gothic (2007, Castle Type), the free font Au Bauer Text Initials (1990, Auras Design), OPTI Bauer Text Initials (Castcraft), and the 1994 revival by GroupType as Schneidler Initials. Schneidler Initials is in fact originally known as Schneidler-Mediaeval mit Initialen.
  • Schneidler Amalthea (1936). See A770 Roman on the SoftMaker MegaFont XXL CD (2002), Amalthea SH by Scangraphic, and URW Schneidler Amalthea, 2011).
  • Bauersche Giesserei: Legende (1937). A faux Arabic script font digitized at Profonts/URW++ by Ralph M. Unger in 2002, by Brendel (as Legend) in 1990, and by Ari Rafaeli in 2006. Elsner and Flake published the script font Graphis (1934, revival by Jürgen Brinckmann).
  • Bauersche Giesserei: Schneidler (1936). It was published in digital form by Bitstream, Adobe, and Elsner&Flake.

For Schneidler, the best source is the book by Max Caflisch, Albert Kapr, Antonia Weiss, and Hans Peter Willberg entitled F.H. Ernst Schneidler Schriftentwerfer Lehrer Kalligraph SchumacherGebler, München, 2002.

Geometrical type designs
[Manfred Klein]

Manfred is always keenly aware of the geometrical nature of objects and things. Sometimes he is seduced by geometry for the sake of geometry. His Archimedean perversions have led him to a number of superb experimental type designs: AbstractConcretLogo, Abstracta-Bold, AbstractaGrid, AeroGapBricks, AeroSans, AntikWaCom, AntiquaInGrid, AntiquaInGridBalloons, ArcheTypoBricks, ArcheTypoBricksInvers, ArchitectsDreams, ArchitectsDreamsDwa, Architypo, ArchitypoOblique, Architypogra, ArchitypograPsychodeliqu, BlaxxOnGrid, BloxxSerifBold, BorisBlackBloxx (used by Brisbane for its branding), BorisBlackBloxxDirty, ConstrxiaBlackInline, GalleriaGeometricaA, GalleriaGeometricaB, GeometricWanderlust, Graphis, GridPix, GridRiding, KleinBricksNegative, KleinsFirstBricksBold, LeArchitect, Logomatique, LogomatiqueBold, LogomatiqueShadow, NautilusOne, NautilusTwo, NeoPanButtons, NeoPanRings, NeoPanSquares, Qbicle1BRKMK, Qbicle1BRKMKinv, RomanArchitectura, SketchiquaA, SketchiquaB, SketchiquaC, SketchiquaD, TechnoMK, ThreeDeeTwoBeta, ThreeDimRightwards, ThreeDimRightwardsRound, Threedimensional, ThreedimensionalRound, TypoTracesOne, Typotraces-Cinque, Typotraces-Four, Typotraces-Three, Typotraces-Zwo, WorkWithGridsStageC, ZigZagOne, ZigZagThree, Geoplays (2005), GeoEyes01 (2006), BauhausFragments (2005), ZigZagTwo, BlackBats (2007).

Günter Gerhard Lange

Known to his peers as GGL. German type designer, born in Frankfurt-an-der-Oder in 1921, d. 2008. He fought in World War II and lost his leg in a battle in France. Starting in 1941, Lange studied as apprentice of Georg Belwe at the Academy of Graphic and Book Arts in Leipzig. After graduation in 1945, until 1949, he was assistant of Professor Walter Tiemann, while also practicing painting and graphic design independently. In 1949, he continued his studies with Professors Hans Ullmann and Paul Strecker at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in West Berlin. From 1950 onwards, he worked at Berthold AG in Berlin, where he designed his first type, Arena in 1951. In 1955, he became Reader in Typography at the Meisterschule für Graphik, Druck und Werbung in West Berlin. One of his many students was Manfred Klein. He also was Advisor in Visual Communications and Reader at the U5 Academy of Graphic Design and Art Direction Munich, and Instructor at the School of Applied Art in Vienna. H. Berthold AG's artistic director from 1961 to 1990, Lange was responsible for the creation and meticulous production of many of Berthold's typefaces. According to Dieter Hofrichter, his motto was 8 point is the moment of truth (when proofing typefaces). In 1989 he received the Frederic W. Goudy Award from the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). Recipient of the year 2000 TDC medal. After ten years of retirement from his position as Berthold AG's artistic director, Lange resumed his design activities in 2000 at Bertholdtypes (now Berthold Direct Inc) in Chicago. Bio at ATypI.

Lange's own designs include his revivals of many classical typefaces. Here is a list, all Berthold faces:

Yvonne Schwemer-Scheddin writes a day after his death: Dear type friends, yesterday morning, the 2nd of December 2008, Günter Gerhard Lange died, 87 years old. We lost an upright, steadfast fighter for quality in type design. Not only Berthold's artistic director, but a friend and objective adviser to many who needed personal help or an evaluation in type design. GGL was Berthold. For Berthold GGL "enhanced" many type designs of other well known type designers. His valued critizism was a great help, because it came from a positively tuned man. GGL transferred the lead heritage and its classical type faces into photocomposition and into the digital format on a high aesthetic and historically authentic level - as for instance Garamond or Van Dijk. Akzidenz-Grotesk is not thinkable without GGL. Bodoni Old Face one of the best contemporary text faces. With his sans serif Imago you can be different and yet classical. And the Americans should be pleased with the revival of Deepdene, which he also turned into a well working textface with a distinct character. But perhaps most important of all, he relentlessly encouraged the young, teaching and talking up to almost the end. Thus opening fences, eyes and hearts to art, architecture, literature and for the values of studies and love for the correct details without which the whole would not function. He was a rare communicator, because he lived his convictions and values. He became an example, a light of orientation. We lost a passionate type lover and expert---an authentic man. An era has come irreversible to its end. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

Hermann Delitsch

Typography professor in Leipzig, who lived from 1869-1937. He was the teacher of Jan Tschichold in 1919. Faces based on his work were created by Manfred Klein (Delitsch Initialen, 2004) and Petra Heidorn (Delitsch Antiqua, 2004). Both can be found here. The originals are Ramses (1912, Klinkhardt, an Antiqua typeface revived in 2012 by Chiron as TbC Ramses-Antiqua), Delitsch Antiqua (1911, Klinkhardt), and Delitsch-Kanzlei (1903, Klinkhardt).

He is credited with Antiguo Manuscrito, a semiscript family, at the Richard Gans Foundry. The latter was digitized by Paulo W (Intellecta Design) as Gans Antigua Manuscrito (2006).

Author of Schribschriftnormen (1928, K.W. Hiersemann), Delitzsch-Antiqua: eine künstlerische Schriftgarnitur mit Initialen und Schmuck für zeitgemässe Buchausstattung (1915). [Google] [More]  ⦿

Imre Reiner

Typographer, architect, designer and type designer, b. Versec, Hungary, 1900, d. Lugano, Switzerland, 1987. He emigrated from Hungary, and studied at the Staatliche Bildhauerschule Zalatua, the Kunstgewerbeschule Frankfurt, and the Kunstgewerbeschule in Stuttgart, where Prof. F. H. Ernst Schneidler was his teacher. After a brief stint (1923-1925) as a graphic designer in London, Paris, New York and Chicago, he returned to study with Schneidler, and from 1931 onwards, he worked in Ruvigliana near Lugano as painter, graphic designer and illustrator. His list of fonts includes:

  • Bazaar or Bazar (1956, D. Stempel; this brush typeface was revived in 2005 by Patrick Griffin, Canada Type, as Boondock).
  • The brush script Contact (Deberny&Peignot, 1952; Ludwig&Mayer, 1968 (according to Jaspert), and 1963 according to others).
  • Corvinus (Bauersche Giesserei, 1934; Swisstypedesign mentions 1932-1935). See also here. Corvinus Skyline (1934). Digital typefaces derived from this include Corvinus Skyline (1991, Group Type), Skyline (1992, Jane Patterson, Font Bureau).
  • Figaro (1940).
  • Florides Initiales (Deberny&Peignot, 1939, 3d horizontally shaded caps).
  • The Gotika fraktur font (Bauersche Giesserei, 1933), revived as Gotika by Petra Heidorn (2005, no downloads) and as Leather by Canada Type (2005). Manfred Klein created Gotika Buttons (2005) based on Petra Heidorn's Gotika. Gotika discussion on Typophile. Eric West intends to do a digitization as well, and Neufville is not cooperating.
  • London Script (1957). This was digitized twice at Canada Type, once by Phil Rutter in 2004 as Almanac, and once in 2007 by Rebecca Alaccari as Reiner Hand.
  • Matura MT (1938, Monotype), Matura Swash (1938).
  • Mercurius MT (1957).
  • Meridian (1930, Klingspor: a fat display face). Swisstypedesign says 1929.
  • Mustang (1956, D. Stempel, a brush script revived in 2005 by Canada Type as Hunter).
  • Pepita MT (1959).
  • Reiner Black (1955, Berthold, a brush script).
  • Reiner Script (1951, Amsterdam). Digitizations of this brush script under the same name include those of Dieter Steffmann and Tobias Frere-Jones (Font Bureau, 1993).
  • Sassa (1939).
  • Stradivarius (1945, identical to his Symphonie; Bauersche Giesserei, 1938), a formal script font with a compressed straightened lower case alphabet. [Note: Neufville copied it in its Sinfonia later, and in 2005, Petra Heidorn made a digitized version called Symphonie.] Martin Z. Schröder discusses its origins here. Also called Neue Symphony (1938). Digitizations include one by Group Type in 1993 also called Stradivarius.
  • Amsterdam Primula Ornaments. A digital version by Ari Rafaeli is called Ornaments 5 (2010).

In 1992, Manfred Klein made Tokay-MK after one of Reiner's ideas. In 2004, he added VariationsForImre, a playful typeface based on Reiner's lettering, and this was followed in 2005 by Magyarish.

Reiner wrote several books, including Modern and Historical Typography An Illustrated Guide (1946, Paul A. Struck, New York, and 1948, Zollikofer and Comp., St. Gallen).

Joan Miro

Surrealist Catalan painter, 1893-1983. His work spawned a lot of interest from the part of type designers, who created a number of typefaces in his unique style. The one most taken with Miro's art is undoubtedly Manfred Klein. A listing of the key typefaces influenced by Miró:

Johnann Heinrich Schoensperger

Johnann or Johannes or Hans Schoensperger or Johann Schönsperger der Älte, was an early printer in Augsburg. Born ca. 1455, d. before 1521. He started his print shop in 1481 and dominated German printing in Augsburg until 1500.

Sample page of Gart der Gesundheit (1487). A font named after him, FF Schoensperger, was made by Manfred Klein as part of his package, which also includes FF Carolus Magnus, FF JohannesG, and FF Koberger.

Officina Serpentis
[Eduard Wilhelm Tieffenbach]

Eduard Wilhelm Tieffenbach was born in Königsberg (1883) and died in Berlin (1948). He ran a private letterpress in Berlin around 1900 called Officina Serpentis. His typeface (now dubbed) Officina Serpentis (1913, digitized by Petra Heidorn under the name SerpentisBlack in 2004; also, see the extension Serpentina (2004) by Manfred Klein) is a gotico-antiqua type reminiscent of the 15th century types. It is in fact based on typeforms by Peter Schoeffer (Mainz, 1462) which in turn were refined a few years later by Creussner and Koberger. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Rudolf Koch

Great German type designer (b. Nürnberg, 1876; d. Frankfurt, 1934) who worked mainly at the Klingspor foundry. He founded the Offenbach Werkstatt in 1921. This page lists 158 royalty-free Christian symbols drawn by Rudolf Koch, a religious Lutheran, with the collaboration of Fritz Kredel (1900-1973) (see also here). Biography by Nicholas Fabian. Bio at Linotype. Bio in German. For an English reference work on his life, check Gerald Cinamon's book Rudolf Koch: Letterer, Type Designer, Teacher (2000, Oak Knoll Press (USA) and The British Library (UK)). The Koch Memorial page offers historical notes and many free revivals of his faces.

Many of his typefaces can be classified as German expressionist. These include Kabel (a sans), and Neuland (an angular poster face).

His typefaces, with notes on digitizations:

  • Claudius (1931-1934, 1937, D. Stempel AG): His son Paul Koch followed Rudolf's instructions to make one weight in 1931-1934. Klingspor completed it in 1937. Delbanco (as DS-Claudius) and Klaus Burkhardt (1991) digitized it. Based on the latter, Manfred Klein made ClaudiusImperator (2001). Dieter Steffmann made Claudius, ClaudiusAlternate, and ClaudiusHeadline in 2003. Ralph M. Unger published Claudius in 2010.
  • Deutsche Anzeigenschrift (1913-1914), Deutsche Anzeigenschrift schmal (1916-1923, D. Stempel AG): See SchmaleAnzeigenschrift (2002) and SchmaleAnzeigenschriftZier (2002) by Dieter Steffmann, and Schmale Anzeigenfraktur (2009) by Ralph Unger.
  • Deutsche Anzeigenschrift eng (1923)
  • Deutsche Anzeigenschrift breit (1923, D. Stempel AG)
  • Deutsche Anzeigen. schmalhf. (1934, D. Stempel AG)
  • Deutsche Schrift mager (1918, Gebr. Klingspor)
  • Deutsche Schrift halbfett (1912, Gebr. Klingspor): Deutsche Schrift (or: Koch-Fraktur) was revived by Gerhard Helzel as KochFrakturSchmaleHalbfette (2000), by Christian Richter as Rudolf Koch (2003), and by Delbanco as DS Koch Fraktur. It was a popular family, known in England as Oxford. For comparison, here is a phototype version.
  • Deutsche Schrift fett (1910, Gebr. Klingspor): Fette Deutsche Schrift was revived by Dieter Steffmann in 2002 (as Fette Deutsche Schrift) and by Alter Littera in 2012 as Deutsche Schrift.
  • Deutsche Schrift schmal (1913, Gebr. Klingspor)
  • Deutsche Schrägschrift (1912, Gebr. Klingspor).
  • Deutsche Werkschrift (1934, D. Stempel AG): This is really the "mager" version of Deutsche Anzeigenschrift. Delbanco revived it digitally as DS Deutsche Werkschrift.
  • Deutsche Werkschrift hablfett (1934, D. Stempel AG).
  • Deutsche Zierschrift (1921, Gebr. Klingspor): Revived as Zierinitialen by Dieter Steffmann in 2002. See also Delbanco's DS Deutsche Zierschrift (Delbanco).
  • Frühling (1913-1917, Gebr. Klingspor) is a blackletter that seems to have been executed with a shaky hand---it is definitely one of Koch's weakest and ugliest designs. Incredibly, the revival gang was still eager to spring into action: it was revived and interpreted by Frantisek Storm in Monarchia. See also Delbanco's DS Frühling. For another revival, see Next Stringtime by Manfred Klein (2003). Frühling is sometimes called Kartenschrift.
  • Grotesk Initialen (1933, Gebr. Klingspor): Paul Hayden Duensing made Koch Initials (metal).
  • Holla (1932, Gebr. Klingspor): Digitized by Dieter Steffmann in 2001.
  • Kabel (1927, Gebr. Klingspor): The most famous digitization of this Koch Sans family is by Victor Caruso in ITC Kabel (1976), and with its exaggerated x-height, much larger than the original, it is a poor bastard. The modern Bitstream version is called Geometric 231. Softmaker calls it Koblenz. Poster by Jorge Martinez.
  • Kabel Kursiv (1929, Gebr. Klingspor)
  • Kabel groß (1928, Gebr. Klingspor): LinotypeLibrary
  • Kabel Kursiv groß (1930, Gebr. Klingspor)
  • Norm Kabel (1930, Gebr. Klingspor): LinotypeLibrary
  • Kabel fett (1929, Gebr. Klingspor): LinotypeLibrary
  • Kabel schmal (1930, Gebr. Klingspor)
  • Kabel schmalhalbfett (1929, Gebr. Klingspor)
  • Koch Antiqua (or: Locarno) (1920-1922, Gebr. Klingspor): This gorgeous tall-legged typeface was designed in 1917, but cut in 1922. There exists a multiple master font AIKochAntiqua by Randall Jones (Alphabets Inc). See also LinotypeLibrary, and Astaire Pro (2004, Bergslund Design), as well as KochAltschrift (2004, Moorstation crew), and Locarno (1985, Alan Meeks for Letraset).
  • Koch Kursiv (1923, Gebr. Klingspor): Kursiv version of Koch Antiqua.
  • Koch Kursiv groß (1929, Gebr. Klingspor)
  • Koch Antiqua fett (1926, Gebr. Klingspor). Some give the date 1923-1924. Digital versions include Eva Antiqua, Eva SG (Spiece Graphics), Eva (Monotype), Astaire Pro (Hackberry), Locarno (Letraset), Kuenstler 165 (Bitstream), Koch Antiqua (Adobe, Linotype), Evadare (David Nalle).
  • Koch Kurrent (1933, Gebr. Klingspor): This is Koch's version of school scripts, a variant of his earlier proposal, Offenbacher Schrift (1927). It was only cut in 1935. See Rudolf Koch Kurrent at Delbanco
  • Koch Schrift (1909) is a Schwabacher first known as Neudeutsch and later as Koch Schrift. It was used by the Deutsche Reichsbahn, ca. 1930. For a digital revival, see, e.g., Koch Schrift (1998, Ingo Zimmermann).
  • Marathon (1930-1938, Gebr. Klingspor): Digitized by Linotype in 2003 as Marathon LT (by Ute Harder, aka Frau Jenson), and by Softmaker a bit earlier. The best digital version is by the Koch Memorial team of Petra Heidorn under the name Romantha (a permutation of the letters) in 2003 (it preserves the original x-height better, for example).
  • Maximilian (Gotisch) (1914-1917, Gebr. Klingspor): Walden Font has a revival. See also Maximilian at Delbanco. Castletype made MaximilianCS. In 1995, Doug Olena revived it as Maximilian. Dieter Steffmann made Maximilian (2002) and Maximilian Zier (2002). Maximilian (2012) is due to Alter Littera. Drawings for Maximilian-Gotisch. Gerhard Helzel's revival from 1995. Stephen Miggas's revival called Gothicus (2006).
  • Maximilian Antiqua (1913-1917, Gebr. Klingspor): Manfred Klein made Maximilian Antiqua (2003) and MaximilianAntiquaSmallCaps (2003).
  • Neuland (1923, Gebr. Klingspor): An all caps German expressionist typeface chiseled directly by Koch from metal. Copied by Monotype in 1929 as OthelloMT. Digitized by Linotype Library. Also digitized as Newland Black by Andrey Mel'man. In 1995, Doug Olena (Keystrokes) revived it as FFD Neuland (1995). A lower case and hair-serifed extension was created by Manfred Klein as OnKochsRoots (2002). He also made KochNeu-ExtraBlack (2003). Nick Curtis made Jungle Fever and Jungle Fever Shaded (2008) after Neuland. In 2010, Ian Lynam published yet another update, Neuerland. In 2013, Lazar Dimitrijevic created Cal Neuland Bold.
  • Neuland licht (1928, Gebr. Klingspor): This is an outline version of Neuland.
  • Neu Fraktur (1933-1934, Gebr. Klingspor): Koch's last Fraktur.
  • Offenbach (1928-1934, Gebr. Klingspor): Made for display in church windows, Koch designed the "mager" weight (1931) and an uncial version. His student Hans Kühne finished the "halbfett" and the gothic after his death.
  • Peter Jessen Schrift (1924-1929, Gebr. Klingspor): Koch called this his Bibelschrift. See DS-Jessen-Schrift (1998) by Christian Spremberg and Peter Jessen Schrift at Delbanco. For extrapolated interpretations, see JessicaPlus (2002) and JessicaSerif (2003) by Manfred Klein, and Jessen Schrift (2004) by Ralph M. Unger.
  • Prisma (1928-1931, Gebr. Klingspor): A four-lined art deco face. Revived by Dieter Steffmann (2003-2004) as Prisma, and by Ralph Unger as Prisma Pro (2011).
  • Stahl (1933-1939): Done with H. Kühne. Revived by J.F.Y.Daniel Gauthier - GautFonts as StahlSteel (2003) and StahlSteelRiveted (2003).
  • Wallau (1924-1932, Gebr. Klingspor): See Wallaby on the SoftMaker MegaFont XXL CD, 2002, or Wallau by Fraktur.de or DS Wallau by Delbanco, or Wallau (2012) by Alter Littera. Pictures by Dan Reynolds about Klingspor's Wallau speciman book (1939). Wallau, which comes in rotunda (Rundgotisch) and uncial, was named after Heinrich Wallau (1852-1925), a printer from Mainz. Originally, the typeface was going to be called Missale.
  • Wallau halbfett (1930, Gebr. Klingspor): Revived by Dieter Steffmann as WallauDeutsch-Bold (2002), Wallau Rundgotisch Heavy (2002), Wallau Rundgotisch OsF Heavy (2002), WallauUnzial-Bold (2002) and WallauZierBold (2002). Also digitized by PrimaFont.
  • Wallau fett (1935, Gebr. Klingspor)
  • Wallau schmal (1934, Gebr. Klingspor).
  • Wilhelm-Klingspor-Schrift. (1920-1926, Gebr. Klingspor): This was originally called Missal. To commemorate Wilhelm Klingspor, who died in 1925 from a war injury, it was renamed Wilhelm-Klingspor-Gotisch. Paul Hayden Duensing made a metal version under the latter name. Digitizations by Fraktur.de and Delbanco. See also Wilhelm-Klingspor-Schrift at LinotypeLibary, Wilhelm Klingspor Schrift (2012) by Alter Littera, Wilhelmschrift (2006) by Stephen Miggas, and Missal by Dieter Steffmann (2003). Matching decorative caps were made in 2004 by Paul Lloyd under the name Holzschnitt-Initialen.
  • Zeppelin (1929, Gebr. Klingspor): This is a decorative (inline) version of Kabel. Revived as Zeppelin in 2003 by Dieter Steffmann. Imitations abound, see, e.g., Scriptorium's Evadare (1993).
In 1984, Wolfgang Hendlmeier discussed the blackletter faces in Koch's oeuvre: A, B, C, D, E, F, G. Koch's involvement in handwriting education in Germany led to these Schreibschrift examples from 1930 (also called Deutsche Verkehrsschrift), and to the development by Martin Hermersdorf of the Deutsche Schreibschrift for fourth graders in Bavaria in 1950. His influences as a blackletter designer and illustrator are documented in this brief bio by Wolfgang Hindlmeier (1984). Wood engraving of Koch by Bernard Brussel-Smith.

Runes

16th century Franciscan scribe and calligrapher (1501-1563), known for his 1554 writing manual Opera di Frate Vespasiano Amphiareo da Ferrara ... nella quale si insegna a scrivere varie sorti de lettere (Venice, 1554), the first place where one can find a Bastarda. Typefaces based on scans of his work include Gothic Majuscles (2003, Manfred Klein, based on Gothic Initials, 1554), and Amphiareo (2002, a Mac font made by Michael Schrauzer).
