What is the Leipziger Antiqua™ font?
The original typeface was designed by Albert Kapr between 1971 and 1973 for Typoart in Dresden. Kapr was the font designer and teacher as well as book author on type design of former East Germany. He also was an expert on this kind of type design, and thus, it is no surprise that he created Leipziger Antiqua, a design combining features of both Latin and broken scripts. The result is a stunning and unique gem from earlier times although it does not come along too distinguished or artsy.
The digital version of Leipziger Antiqua was developed by Ralph M. Unger in 2005. During the work, Unger fell so deeply in love with this typeface that he couldn’t help but add an expert font with small caps etc.
