Published by Bauer from 1929–37, beginning with the extrafett weight in 1929 and most of the others in 1931. [Reichardt] The metal original has alternates for ‘K’ and ‘R’ with a curved leg. 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 an unusual ‘t’ with flat platform serif at the baseline. Hunter is the only revival that retains this shape, while other adopt the more conventional form from the condensed styles. URW’s version features outline and stencil style as well as a set of compressed caps. Formerly known as Egypt No1.
