URW AntiquaDesigner: Hermann Zapf
Publisher: URW Type Foundry
URW Antiqua was developed by Hermann Zapf and published by URW Type Foundry. URW Antiqua includes 63 styles and household package options. p > URW Grotesk was created solely for URW by Prof. Hermann Zapf in 1985. At the same time, Zapf designed URW Antiqua to choose URW Grotesk. At that time, we were dealing with a large German publishing home (Axel Springer) on type design services to replace certain of their paper typefaces. Evaluate pages of big German papers (e.g. Bildzeitung) were printed with URW Grotesk and URW Antiqua font households. For reasons not divulged to us, the task was dropped and Springer never ever used URW Grotesk and URW Antiqua for that purpose.

Anyway, Zapf completed his styles and URW produced both families.

Zapf's intent for the 2 typefaces was to develop two highly readable, open and classical typefaces that could be used for any kind of typography, particularly books, papers, magazines, etc.

However, we understood in the future, that URW Grotesk is effectively matched for multi media applications on screen.
