AKA Pinselschrift (brush script) Reporter. First cast in 1938 [Reichardt] or 1939 [J. Wagner index card] by Norddeutsche Schriftgießerei and later by their successor Johannes Wagner. The metal original – larger sizes were also available in wood – came with many extras: alternates, swash underlines, ligatures, as well as logotypes for common German trigraphs like ‘sch’ and even whole syllables (‘ent’, ‘ung’, ‘heit’, ‘keit’).
Reporter No. 2 is a simplified version with far fewer gaps inside the main strokes. It lacks all of the mentioned embellishments. Shown in LinoTypeCollection (1987) and available in digital form (©1989 Adobe).
