Neuland typeface

20/01/2011

To those unfamiliar with Rudolph Koch this should come as a beauty. It is real stonecarvers face, bold, strong, very German. This illustration is taken from that marvellous volume Book Production Notes by Newdigate, mentioned in a recent post.

Bernard writes: “Like others of Koch’s types, the Neuland seems to have been designed, not with pen or pencil on paper, but with a cutting tool on wood or soft metal”.
