Wilke Kursiv is a display screen sans font family. This typeface has twelve styles and was released by Canada Type.

Martin Wilke's underrated yet influential deco classic from 1932 has both feet firmly planted in the high customs of Western European calligraphy while thoroughly and discreetly introducing some characteristics from the sweeping geometric/minimalist vision of the time. In a way, it was one the agents of the European anti-type typefaces of that age, when print media was searching for the evasive aesthetic balance between humanism and geometry. This typeface enjoyed some popularity in Germany for a couple of years, and went on to influence additional type designs in Holland and Italy. After the second World War, the black hole that swallowed a huge portion of Europe's print culture, new impacts and innovations surpassed the scene, and selective historical focus occurred, highlighting a few of the age's designs and overlooking others. Additional selective picking in the digital period all however buried Wilke's body of work - unjustly so, since he was simply as important in German type history as Bernhard, Post, Schneidler, Tiemann and Trump.

The initial metal Wilke Kursiv came in one weight. This digital version goes a long method in expanding on that original offering. Now Wilke's work of art comes in three weights, and with a complete Pro treatment consisting of swash caps, little capitals, 5 kinds of figures, automatic fractions, and a lot of other OpenType niceties. Each of the Wilke Kursiv Pro font styles includes over 700 characters, and consists of support for a lot of Latin-based languages. Also available are 3 non-Pro font styles in each weight.
