About this font family
Mountain is a digital revival and extension of Teutonia, an old metal typeface released by the Roos & Junge type foundry (Offenbach am Main, Germany) in 1902.

Mountain’s underlying geometric feeling is reminiscent of pixels and grids, suiting it for application with music and art, as well as history.
