AKA Nobel-Antieke. An adaptation of Berthold-Grotesk, revised to bring it more in line with Futura. [Dutch typefounders’ specimens] Released in c. 1929–1932 in 3 weights, the 2 lighter ones with small caps and italics, plus 2 condensed upright weights, a set of open caps (Open Nobel Kapitalen) [Reichardt] and shadow caps (Schaduw Nobel Kapitalen, identical with Umbra?). [Dutch typefounders’ specimens] Adapted for the Intertype linecasting machine, for poster woodtype, and for headline phototype systems. [DTL]
Digitally revived as DTL Nobel (Dutch Type Library, 1993) and FB Nobel (Font Bureau, 1993; used for the sample).
