For this card, Martin Z. Schröder of Letterpress Berlin used Compliment. This upright script was first published by Ludwig & Mayer in 1965. Note the hook on ‘u’ – not a diacritic, but a means to help distinguish the letter from ‘n’, as it once was common in German handwriting. Compliment is another design by Helmut Matheis (*1917) — see also his Charme and Slogan.
