Designed by Georg Trump between 1951 and 1955 and released by the Weber type foundry in Germany, Delphin I is a beautiful roman typeface with strong calligraphic leanings. Trump was primarily a teacher of lettering and typography, inspired by the well-respected German type designer and teacher F. H. Schneidler. All of Trumps calligraphic typefaces are notable for their beauty and elegance. The lowercase letters of Delphin I are slightly inclined, with ascenders that are much taller than the capitals. The h, k, p, and y make Delphin I easy to identify, along with the capitals K and R, which have tails that taper to a point. It is a fine typeface for advertising display work and commonly appears in film titles. Delphin II is a companion typeface to Delphin I, which is lighter in weight. Delphin II is unusual in that very little of the verve and definition of the lighter weight is lost in the translation to semibold, a tribute to Trumps genius as a type designer. Delphin II is a display face that can be used successfully in books, newsletters, magazines, and advertising. The Delphin IA and Delphin IIA fonts have the same basic designs as Delphin I and II, but with alternate versions of the letters d, g, and s.
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.
Designed by Hermann Zapf and released by the Stempel type foundry in 1954, Kompakt is a heavy, almost roughly shaped display face. One of the most famous and prolific type designers of the 20th century, Zapf is best-known for his very popular Palatino and Optima typefaces. Kompakt is slightly inclined, with a large x-height and very short ascenders and descenders, and is easily recognized by the diamond-shaped dots above the i and j. Designed primarily for commercial use, it is very effective when applied frugally to advertising and job work.
Neuland is based on the handwriting of Rudolf Koch (as are all of his typefaces). Its simplicity and unusual shapes derive from the difficult and demanding art of punchcutting. In fact, it may be the only typeface designed by actually cutting the punches; Koch made no preliminary drawings. Designed and released by the Klingspor foundry in 1923, Neuland became enormously popular as an advertising typeface. It is a sans serif, all-capital design with angular features, obliqued strokes and a slight concavity to some of the vertical strokes. Used with restraint, it can lend power and persuasion to display work, as it did when forming the basis for titles appearing in the film Jurassic Park.
