In 1930 Jan Tschichold describes a new typeface in the publication “Börsenblatt für den Deutschen Buchhandels”, that “can be drawn by everyone without typographic knowledge”. Sebastian Nagel extended the original drawing to 7 weights (black, extrabold, bold, semibold, regular, semilight and light), with full coverage of the Latin 1 character set. All fonts also include small caps and alternate characters.
