A NOTE ON THE TYPE
Rudolf Weiss designed this typeface in 1926 for the Bauer foundry
of Frankfurt. Weiss is based on typefaces from the Italian Renaissance, and is one of the earliest contemporary serif types to have
italics based on the chancery style of writing. The vertical strokes
that are heavier at the top than at the bottom are unusual, and give
Weiss a distinct beauty. Weiss is a legible text type and an elegant
display face for headlines or titles. Weiss is a registered trademark
of Bauer Types, S.A.
