Block® Berthold BE

Designed by H. Hoffman, H. Berthold initially released Block in 1908. H. Berthold also released subsequent versions reworked by Hoffman through 1926. With its distinctive bold characters and very short descenders, Block was a staple for job printing in Germany for decades. In the late 1970s, H. Berthold added weights, including italics, to offer more flexibility.
