Shop front of G. Klose’s bakery in Königslutter, Germany, spotted by Monsieur Adrien in August 2023.
The letterforms are patterned after Diskus, a pen script by Martin Wilke that was first cast by Stempel in the late 1930s, in two weights. The sign is based on the bolder one, with increased x-height. There are two digitizations of Diskus Bold, by URW and by Linotype. We can tell that neither was referenced for the making of this sign: the G uses the alternate form (with trimmed descender) – which isn’t included in either of the digital fonts.
When Jürgen Klose retired in 2018, the family business closed for good.
