A narrow Gotisch by Rudolf Koch, “cut after his drawings” [1937 Klingspor ad] and released posthumously by Klingspor in 1934. In 1937–1938, two heavier weights were added by Hans Kühne. [Reichardt] The halbfett was advertised in Gebrauchsgraphik 11/1936. Equipped with two sets of capitals, “unziale” (i.e. Roman) by Koch himself, and “deutsche” (i.e. blackletter), added by Kühne. [Gebrauchsgraphik, 1/1936] The former was the basis for Stahl. The sample shows the mager with an “unzial” ‘O’. All three weights come with alternate forms for ‘a’ and ‘z’ [VdS].
Gerhard Helzel has digitized the mager and the halbfett, with both sets of capitals, from two sizes each.
