Designed by Julius Kirn and first cast by C.E. Weber as Bison in 1938. From 1923, the Stuttgart-based foundry had a joint venture with J.D. Trennert in Altona and shared designs with them. Trennert’s version is named Blizzard.
Digital versions include Blizzard (URW) from URW++, which is sharp-edged, a tad lighter, and most notably more tightly spaced than Brush 738 (Bitstream, 1990–1993). Ralph Unger made another digitization as RMU Bison (RMU, 2020; used for sample).
