Empty German Antiqua Case


This German typecase configuration was in use at Druckladen des Gutenberg-Museums in 1997 and reflects the style of earlier cases shown by Legros & Grant, Hostettler, et al. It is a variation of the DIN 16502 case shown by Kollecher & Matuschke: Der Moderne Druck, 1956, and others, as in the centre section it has the i box the same size as the 1pt spacing box beneath it, whereas the standard case has the i box larger than the 1pt box. A reproduction by Druckwerkstatt Mosbach in 1997 shows the right hand box in the third row from the top, as a double width box, rather than two single width boxes.

A suitable lay is German Antiqua.
