Designed by Herbert Thannhaeuser and cut by August Rosenberger. [Bertheau] Released by Stempel in 1928. Expanded with swash caps as Schwung-Adastra in 1931 or 1932. Named Royal for markets abroad. [Seemann, Reichardt]
Digitized as OPTI Royal (Castcraft, 1990–1991, swash caps only, used for the sample) and as Adastra by Doug Olena (Keystrokes, 1992–1994, regular caps only, Regular (inline) and Plain (solid) styles, poor spacing)). Rhythm (Positype, 2011) is a digital interpretation by Neil Summerour, loosely based on Schwung-Adastra.
