Designed by F.H. Ehmcke in 1907 and cut by Louis Hoell in 1908. [Bertheau] Comes with alternates for ‘P’ and ‘T’. [Klingspor-Museum] The italic companion Ehmcke-Kursiv followed in 1910. The regular was also cast by Caslon as Carlton (1911, without the long ‘s’ and with a non-kerning ‘f’ [Bertheau]) and by Neufville as Antigua Cervantes. [Reichardt]
Letraset’s revival and the digital versions thereof use the English name. Yuanchen Jiang’s digitization, Antiqua Roman (2017), comes closer to the original. Unfortunately, it appears to be missing many cap-to-lowercase kerns.
