Designed by Willy Wiegand and cut by Louis Hoell in 1911 for the Bremer Presse, Bremer Antiqua is an ambassador of the private press movement and its legacy. This is a tribute.The uppercase and lowercase letters are more harmonized, and with their lowered vertical center, adapted broad nib contrast and altered proportions they are now more suitable for contemporary text settings. Details like assymmetrical serifs are emphasized, normal ones are elongated. There is also a monospaced version with the same characteristics currently in development – assessment pending.
Work in progress, available on request.
