Huckleberry is a revival and expansion of a 1973 typeface called Mark Twain, which was G. Jaeger’s reaction to the popularity of VGC’s Eightball (also digitized and expanded as Orotund by Canada Type) from across the ocean. Jaeger’s reaction was typical German efficacy, with majuscules that surpass their inspiration in art and humour, and minuscules that could have been just the thing if one wanted to make the Eightball lowercase friendlier. Back in its day, this font reached its own heights of popularity in Western Europe, but in the Americas it was less known because art nouveau faces were being made by the hundreds in the 1970s.
