    Postcard with socialist idyll. From 1953 to 1990, Karl-Marx-Stadt was the name of Chemnitz. The typeface is Diskus halbfett, designed by Martin Wilke (Stempel, 1939). Here it appears wider and has a larger x-height than the metal original (or the digital versions, for that matter). Hyphens are too high.
