Designed by Albert Knab for Schelter & Giesecke in 1901. Larger sizes also made in wood. Accompanied by a set of initials and ornaments (Zierrat). A schmal fett (bold condensed) followed in 1904 [Reichardt 2011]. This bolder style later got a name on its own: It is shown as Othello, with a 1903 date and credited as an in-house design [Wetzig 1926].
Phototype versions of the light style by PLINC (before 1965) and Lettergraphics (before 1968, as Delgo).
The original style and the initials were digitally revived by HiH in 2007.
