This issue was published for Johannistag (St. John’s Day) 1932. Topics covered included the limits of quality in machine typesetting compared to manual typesetting, the Intertype double-decker model F, and the advantages of the Typograph typesetting machine “Universal B”. See the original post on Flickr for a full list of contents (in German).
The typeface “Energos”, provided to us for printing by Schriftguss A.-G. vorm. Brüder Butter, Dresden, makes a good, powerful and energetic impression.
Like Mammut (1928) and Signal (1930), Energos is one of the many low-contrast script typefaces that popped up around the time. Designed by Arno Drescher, it was released just before the issue came out. A year later, in 1933, Schriftguss added the lighter Appell.
