Registered by Berthold in April 1900. [Reichsanzeiger] Released in regular and halbfett styles in 1901, followed by Kontur (outline, 1904) and fett (1907) styles. The fett was also cast by Idźkowski as Renesans gruby [Reichardt]. Later also spelled Sezession. Schattenschrift is a shadow style with a chromo (colored fill) option. Augusta’s Serie 1002 is a wood type adaptation.
HiH’s Secession Bold (2006, used for the sample) is a revival of the halbfett, with additional weights and obliques derived from it.
