Designed by Jakob Erbar and similar to his Erbar Grotesk. Originally released by Ludwig & Mayer around 1923 under the generic name Lichte fette Grotesk (“Open bold sans-serif”). Photo-Lettering had it as Locarno.
The other sans-serif all-caps display faces by Erbar are: Lucina (black rectangles with reversed characters inside, 1926), Lumina (outline, 1928), Lux (two-line, with the inner/right line being heavier, 1929).
