3 styles: Messe-Grotesk-Versalien in 1921 (black caps), halbfett (bold, with lowercase) in 1924, and licht (Inline version of the Versalien) in 1927 [Reichardt]. Accompanied by a set of matching ornaments designed by Ludwig Enders, known as Ludwig-Enders-Zierat.
The initial caps-only style was digitized by Paul Hickson for Red Rooster in 1997 (used for the sample). The inline style was revived by Nick Curtis as Troglodyte NF in 2011.
