Steile Futura halbfett (Medium) was released in 1952. Various styles were added until the mager (Light) weight in 1957. [Reichardt] The family was known as Bauer Topic in UK/US, Vox in Spain, and Zénith in France. It was designed by Paul Renner but is not related to his Futura. The name was likely a marketing decision.
Round-formed alternates (a la Futura Display) were available for ‘A, E, K, M, N, and W’.
