Kolonial is Wilhelm Woellmer’s version of Post Oldstyle Roman No. 2 (ATF, 1901). Woellmer released the regular weight in 1904 and added five more styles until c. 1911 [Hans Reichardt]. The shaded style, Schraffierte Kolonial (1906), is based on Curtis Post, which “was produced by ATF in 1902 for the Saturday Evening Post magazine of Curtis Publishing Company, but soon released to printers in general” [Mac McGrew via Luc Devroye]. Post Oldstyle Roman No. 2/Kolonial was also available from several other typefoundries, including the Lettergieterij Amsterdam (as Columbia) and the H.C. Hansen Foundry of Boston (as Buffalo) [Jaspert].
