Künstler Script was designed by Hans Bohn for the Stempel foundry in 1957.
This elegant script is based on the copperplate style of artistic handwriting that was a popular commercial design from the nineteenth century. The original name, Künstler Schreibschrift, means artistic writing font. What is unusual about Künstler Script is its availability in a fairly heavy weight, a feature infrequently seen in copperplate types.
Künstler Script works well as display type for advertising work, and for more informal, personal work such as invitations and announcements.
