    [“The aftershave of the cultivated gentleman provides delicious refreshment each morning”]

    “Serving suggestion” by the Bauersche Gießerei, pairing yellow caps from Futura Black (Paul Renner, 1929) with Steile Futura (1952–57, started in c.1939 as Normal-Grotesk) and, as finishing touch, an initial from Symphonie (Imre Reiner, 1938, also known as Stradivarius).
