this is fascinating, and the typeface is beautiful.
i would appreciate if you can help me find a similar font or a type specimen containing all the characters. i want to use it for a student work.
there is a digitization by Gerhard Helzel, spanning 3 weights plus a (newly added?) licht (outlined and shaded) style. This information was missing from our typeface page. I have added it just now. Here is a showing from his specimen catalog:
Single styles are €25. The mager (light) is €20. A bundle of mager and halbfett is €40. Helzel’s website may look a tad unconventional, but ordering is pretty straightforward. Send him an email (he speaks English) and pay via Paypal.
The original logo of M. Kempinski & Co. with the seven-pointed star that I had mentioned in the caption to the second image was designed by Karl Schulpig. It is shown together with one of this graphic artist’s more famous creations, the logo for Allianz, in an ad in the Gebrauchsgraphik issue from September 1934.
