About Comenius Font Family

Created for Berthold in 1976 by prolific designer Hermann Zapf. He said of his design “The basic idea was to create a roman which was to combine good legibility with a more ‘human’ feeling—in other words, not too cold and abstract. The face was supposed to still show the influence of the broad nib. Although mainly designed for large bodies of text, it can also be used for ads and display purposes, especially in its bold weight.” Comenius Antiqua was named for 17th century Czech theologian and educational reformer Jan Amos Comenius.

About Berthold

The H. Berthold typefoundry, renowned for crafting high-quality typefaces, was founded in 1858 by Hermann Berthold in Berlin. By 1918 the foundry had become the largest in the world, with offices in Stuttgart, St. Petersburg, Leipzig, Riga, Budapest and Vienna. To complement its proprietary typesetting equipment business activities, Berthold developed high quality typefaces. The H. Berthold foundry’s most celebrated family of typefaces is arguably Akzidenz-Grotesk (released 1896), known as the mother of all sans serifs.The Premium foundry page can be viewed Here.
