Designed by Karlgeorg Hoefer as a display extension to Permanent, but originally named just Headline. Released in 1964 in solid and open (licht) styles. A kursiv followed in 1969. Descending alternates for ‘gjpqy’. All 3 styles eventually had a lowercase. [Klingspor Museum, L+M index cards]
The regular is the only style in the Permanent family that is available digitally.
