Klingspor type faces - perfect design, better setting; leaflet issued by Soldans Ltd., London, for Duo typeface, c1955

A lovely little publicity leaflet issued by Soldans Ltd, the London agency for Klingspor and several other German typefounders. It is a quarter fold and could well have been printed in Germany.

 

The leaflet isn't dated but Alfred Finsterer designed Duo Licht and Duo Dunkel, seen here as Duo Outline and Duo Solid, in 1954 only a couple of years before the effective takeover of Gebrüder Klingspor by the German concern of D. Stempel AG . The leaflet also include other typefaces such as Saltino, Cable Medium, Marathon, Gavotte and Cable Bold Condensed.
