Corvinus
Imre Reiner's “Corvinus”, a typeface released by the Bauer Type Foundry (Bauersche Giesserei) in 1934. It was also separately published by Ludwig & Mayer.

Lanston's 1948 typeface Glamour was based on it.

The name of the typeface refers to Mátyás (Matthias) Corvinus, the Renaissance king of Hungary. The word Corvinus is Latin for raven, which was Matthias' family symbol. Reiner was Hungarian and this was probably a symbolic choice for him, as he was not living in Hungary at the time. Corvinus remains a national hero and icon in Hungary, known as the last Hungarian King.
