Designed by Albert Knab for Schelter & Giesecke in 1901. Larger sizes also made in wood. Accompanied by a set of initials and ornaments (Zierrat). A schmal fett (bold condensed) followed in 1904. [Reichardt] This bolder style later got a name on its own: It is shown in Seemann as Othello, with a 1903 date and credited as an in-house design.
Phototype versions of the light style by PLINC (before 1965) and Lettergraphics (before 1968, as Delgo).
The original style and the initials were digitally revived by HiH in 2007.
