    Krimhilde was originally designed by Albert Auspurg and released in 1933 with the type foundry Ludwig & Mayer. The design mixes elements of German blackletter typefaces and geometric sans-serif designs, which became popular in the 1920s in the movement known as New Typography. 

    The FDI version of Krimhilde offers both original styles (regular and bold) as “version A” with a full Latin 1 character set. “Version B” has alternative shapes for some letters to make the design more legible for people who are not familiar with the German blackletter shapes. 

    In addition, there are optional display styles available (outline, shadow and fill), which can be used separately or together to create a chromatic layout.

    Marlene Dietrich war eine deutsche Schauspielerin und Sängerin. Sie nahm 1939 die Staatsbürgerschaft der Vereinigten Staaten an und unterstützte die USA tatkräftig während des 2. Weltkriegs. Marlene Dietrich gilt als Hollywood- und Stilikone und ist eine der wenigen deutschsprachigen Künstlerinnen des 20. Jahrhunderts, die auch international Ruhm erlangten. Typisch für sie waren ihre tiefe rauchig-erotische Stimme und die von ihr getragenen Hosenanzüge; sie machte das Kleidungsstück in den 1930er Jahren für Frauen salonfähig.

    Marie Magdalene Dietrich was a German actress and singer who held both German and American citizenship. Throughout her long career, which spanned from the 1910s to the 1980s, she maintained popularity by continually reinventing herself. Dietrich was noted for her humanitarian efforts during the war, housing German and French exiles, providing financial support and even advocating their US citizenship. For her work on improving morale on the front lines during the war, she received several honors from the United States, France, Belgium, and Israel.
