Justin Erich Walbaum’s typeface of 1804 was cut by hand, thus, varying in forms and proportions in each size. Günter Gerhard Lange’s Berthold Walbaum Book is based on the 16 point size of Walbaum’s 1804 typeface and has great contrast in stroke weight. Berthold released Berthold Walbaum Book in 1975. It is well-suited for body copy, particularly for formal documents that need a contemporary flair, as well as for headlines.
