What does Albertus mean?
- Albertus is a glyphic, serif typeface designed by Berthold Wolpe in the period 1932 to 1940 for the Monotype Corporation type foundry. Wolpe named the font after Albertus Magnus, the thirteenth-century German philosopher and theologian. Wolpe studied as a metal engraver, and Albertus was modeled to resemble letters carved into bronze. The face began as titling capitals. Eventually a lowercase roman was added, and later an italic, which is distinct for its narrow character set. Albertus has slight glyphic serifs. It is available in light and italic varieties. The Cyrillic glyphs are available for the printer named HP LaserJet. The project began in 1932. Titling caps were released first, in 1932, followed by a roman upper and lowercase in 1940 with light weight following later.
