GLASS ANTIQUA
0

Hi there,

I know this type sample is from Franz Paul Glaß, the font name is Glass Antiqua, it is from 1913.
Do you know if there is a similar typeface which is digitized?

Apologies in that I don't know the answer to your question, but that's an impressive CH ligature. I only noticed that it was ligated when I was looking at the difference of the Üs between the two sizes.

I have the bold version from Genzsch & Heyse in the works; I hadn't seen the book/normal version before...quite nice.

Hi oldnick,
if you would like to see more letteres of the normal version, I have this reference from the Taschen book "Type. A Visual History of Typefaces & Graphic Styles, 1901-1938" It's very inspiring!

Thanks anyway, I guess I have to trace myself then :)

Here is the result. It was an exercise, the motif was for a silkscreen printing class.

@PR Toll die Stimmung eingefangen und daraus ein schön kompaktes Label gestaltet, Kompliment!
