Despite my sans-serif typeface,my geometric lines and curvesare evident. I was finally re-leased to the world in 1927,inspiring a new modern ap-proach to fonts, hence mytrendy name. Some of myoriginal characteristics canbe found not in my ownletters, but in those of thetypeface Architype Renner.
Iʼm thankful that my designer
avoided the unnecessarydecorative lines that someother typefaces possess.Without the design style that came from theGerman school of Bauhaus from1919-1933, Iwould not exist today. I owe my fame to theBauer Type Foundry, which commissioned
me out of a reaction to Ludwig & Mayerʼs
seminal Erbar of 1922, a typeface similar tomy own.
