Lucian Bernhard was an artist and teacher who began designing the typefaces that bear his name for the Bauer type foundry in Frankfurt in 1912. Bernhard Bold Condensed was designed in 1937 and released as Bernhard Antiqua Bold Condensed. The lower case has a huge x-height, leaving practically no room for ascenders and descenders. The outlines of the capital and lowercase alphabets are slightly roughened and the edges rounded, giving it the appearance of being rubber stamped. The counters are very narrow with curved tops and bottoms. Use Bernhard Bold Condensed for period work, and for display lettering on posters and other large pieces.
