Berthold Wolpe (1905-1989)
Berthold Wolpe was born in Offenbach and did an apprenticeship as a metalworker. He then studied calligraphy with Rudolf Koch and started designing tapestry, jewellery, and type. In 1932 he went to England where he designed some books for Faber & Faber. Because of unfolding events in Germany, he decided to stay in England.
His typefaces are sturdy and bold, and include the typefaces Hyperion, Albertus, and Pegasus. Albertus is ubiquitous as it is used for the street name signs in London.
