    Hans Hillmann (1925–2014) was a big fan of Kabel schmalhalbfett, or Kabel Bold Condensed (1928). Shown here are two posters (DIN A1, 59×84 cm) for re-releases of movies starring Humphrey Bogart, designed for Neue Filmkunst Walter Kirchner in Göttingen.

    Hillmann contrasted the big bold letterforms with smaller type from another member of the same type family, the delicate Kabel leicht (1927). He used these typographic ingredients for the poster for Der Malteser Falke (1972), too, another film featuring Bogart, which has been posted here before.
