About this font family
Narcissus Open is a heavy typeface designed by Walter Tiemann in 1921 for the Klingspor Foundry in Germany.
It is a shaded wide roman using a very modest amount of white highlighting. Serifs are extremely delicate, almost ornamental.
This elegant old typeface gives a feeling of importance and authority and is highly effective when used in large display sizes. Narcissus Solid lacks all highlighting and becomes more useful in smaller sizes. More…
