Designed by Albert Kapr in roman and italic weights in ca. 1959 for the Institut für Buchgestaltung at the Hochschule für Graphik und Buchkunst Leipzig. [Klingspor-Museum] It is unclear whether the typeface was used beyond the academy.
A phototype adaptation in 4 upright weights (A–D) plus Outline and Shadow styles is shown as neo-Faust in an undated (ca. 1980s) Headliners catalog.
Digitally revived and expanded by Leslie Usherwood (International TypeFounders, Inc., 1994–1997) [FontShop] or by Steve Jackaman (Red Rooster, before 2002) [MyFonts].
