An old wood type we picked up in London from the Fredrick Ullmer Company. It’s not marked, and we've never seen it in a catalog, so we don't know who made it.
We like it for antique-looking western posters and playbills. We added the lowercase. We have seen it used on British music hall bills.
This stylish lightface was designed by Bernd Nadall for Barnhart Bros. & Spindler as a caps-only font in 1895.
The lowercase was added at Solotype a hundred years later, resulting in a font quite at home in modern advertising.
Designed by Peter Behrens, well known graphic artist and architect in Germany in the late 19th and early 20th century.
This “Antiqua” was done for Rudhard’s Typefoundry in Offenbach A. M. around 1902, and has been used in modern times for museum retrospectives of the designer’s work.
