Designed by Konrad F. Bauer and Walter Baum, Impressum was released by the Bauer foundry in 1962.
This text type could almost be called a legibility type because it is readable at small sizes: the letters are wide and open, and the lowercase has a fairly tall x-height.
Folio was designed by Konrad F. Bauer and Walter Baum and appeared with the Bauer font foundry (Bauersche Gießerei) in 1957. The designers based their ideas on Helvetica but Folio did not turn out to pose the competition they had hoped. The font has the same applications as Helvetica and is an extremely legible font. Folio is particularly good for text and has an objective, neutral character.
Impressum was created in 1963 by Konrad F. Bauer and Walter Baum for the Bauerschen Gießerei/Intertype and was intended as an alternative to the popular Excelsior of Linotype. Its proportions made it the choice of newspaper publishers and it works particularly well in smaller bodies of text.
Folio was designed by Konrad F. Bauer and Walter Baum, and issued in various weights and widths by the Bauer typefoundry from 1957 through 1962. This sans serif type is similar to Akzidenz Grotesk in its style and application.
