Released in 1936. “A script for virile and specifically Latin advertising, ‘Scribe’ is not a drawn typeface, it’s a fully natural script. It preserves a familiar physiognomy in ‘written’ text. Scribe is a ‘snapshot’ of modern handwriting, captured by Marcel Janco.” [promo text] Danish foundry William Simmelkiær Skriftstøberi had it as Super.
Revived and expanded by Hans van Maanen as Gaulois (Canada Type, 2012), which is used for the sample here.
