First released by Wilhelm Woellmer in 1911 in a bold weight, followed by schmalhalbfett (bold condensed, 1912) and eng (condensed, 1913) styles. The family was completed with schraffiert (hatched, 1922) and schlank (compressed, 1926) styles. The original (bold) weight and the bold condensed weights were also made in Cyrillic versions. Later taken over and cast by Schriftguss. [Reichardt, Seemann] Similar to Berthold’s Block series.
