A phototype interpretation of an untitled “modern alphabet” (UC and lc, with top-heavy alts for ‘edpnr’) by J.M. Bergling shown in his Art Alphabets & Lettering (1914). Shown in Photo-Lettering’s Art Nouveau Xenotypes 1895–1905 (1962) as Xenotype 3487, and in One Line (1971) as Staudel Xenotype K. A copy or another adaptation is shown by FotoStar as Jugendstile. [undated (post-1981) catalog] The sample is derived directly from Bergling’s lettering. See also Ringling Brothers.
See Allotropic (The Flying Type, 2022) for a digital interpretation.
