Thanks for the detailed review! (Maſchinenfabrik: duh, should have spotted that.) I tried to aim for the typefaces that were designed at that time, but I didn’t research the release dates of each available weight…
By the way, “all rights reserved” should read “some rights reversed” since the posters are under a CC license.
Thank you for creating these! Such a series would make for a funny student assignment.
One thing that I didn’t touch upon in the comments is the fact that the lettershapes on posters often are not typographic (i.e. made with fonts), but lettered (drawn, painted, stencilled etc.) – certainly in 1913, but also in post-war decades. Of course I realize that drawing custom letters would have gone beyond the scope of this hoax …
For the “all rights reserved” bit: that’s a known bug – the template is not attuned to CC-licenses yet. Will look into this.
