    This advertising leaflet for Knorr Soßen-Würfel (sauce cubes) was probably printed some time in the 1950s. Note Futura’s tightly spaced ‘ch’ and ‘ck’ digraphs and the use of letter-spacing for emphasis in “Zutaten” (ingredients). The larger bold weight seems to belong to a different geometric Grotesk.

    The script used for the recipe headings is Forelle, designed in 1936 by Erich Mollowitz for C.E. Weber. This typeface was also sold by J.D. Trennert as Rheingold. More info on the typeface page.
