Iwan Reschniev - a typeface by Jan Tschichold

Posted on 29. Okt, 2008 by Ralf Herrmann in Fonts, Typography

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 from Austria 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 include small caps and alternate characters.

    Very clear and concise fonts. Anything would have been more readable than the traditional Kurent.
