What is the Rilke font?

Rilke is an adaptation of the lettering used by Gustav Klimt on his poster for the 1st Vienna Secession exhibition in 1898 and is named for Klimt’s contemporary the poet Rainer Maria Rilke. The Vienna Secession was a group of artists who worked in a variety of styles under the banner of the phrase “to every age its art and to art its freedom.” Their goal was to create a new style that was not based upon any historical influence (yeah, like that’s ever going to happen).
Its subtle curving strokes and the idiosyncratic set of the various characters create an elegant lightness which lends itself well to poetry, inscription and titling.
