Published by Bauer from 1929–37, beginning with the extrafett weight in 1929 and most of the others in 1931. [Reichardt] Formerly known as Egypt No 1. Sold by Neufville in Spain as Época.
Berthold added a Beton Hairline [shown in the E3 catalog, 1982], probably in response to ITC Stymie Hairline.
The original design had ‘K’ and ‘R’ with curved legs (straight legs available as alternates), and an unusual ‘t’ with a flat platform serif at the baseline. Hunter is the only revival that retains these shapes. URW’s version features poster (compact diacritics), outline, and stencil styles, as well as a set of compressed caps.
