Haas Normal-Grotesk

Reworking of “Neue Moderne Grotesk”, originally ca. 1909 by Wagner & Schmidt, Leipzig. Initially issued by Haas under the name “Accidenz-Grotesk”, later spelled “Akzidenz-Grotesk” but 1943 revised and renamed “Normal-Grotesk” to prevent confusion with Berthold’s Akzidenz-Grotesk.

 

Normal-Grotesk functioned as a direct model for Neue Haas-Grotesk (later Helvetica) together with Französische Grotesk by Haas and Berthold’s Akzidenz-Grotesk.
