ABC Walter Alte
Out of the three faithfully revived cuts, Walter Alte Röntgentherapie has the highest contrast, while Walter Alte Normalgrotesk is the most constructed and mono-linear. Walter Alte Rauchwaren is smoother and slimmer, sitting in-between the first two stylistically, recalling the way it once became a fertilizer of the Helvetica empire.
Normalgrotesk and Rauchwaren both occupy a classic regular weight class, whereas Röntgentherapie is bold. Each style embodies Käch’s obsessions with aligning stroke endings perfectly, strictly defining a single stem thickness, and meticulously considering the formation of circles and triangles.
