Designed in 1922 by Rudolph Koch, one of the great lettering artists of the 20th century, Koch-Antiqua, also known as Locarno and Eve, has recently gained popularity among graphic designers and typographers. This delicate display face has a small x-height, very tall ascenders, and main strokes that taper gracefully downward. The E, L, Z, and z have spurs on the serifs of their baseline strokes. When new, Koch-Antiqua was Kochs most popular face outside of Germany, where blackletter types marked his success. Koch-Antiqua appeared extensively in advertising between the wars. A refined letterform, it is best used sparingly for a distinctive look in advertising, book, and job work.
