Bauer Type Foundry
The Bauer Type Foundry, or Bauer'sche Schriftgiesserei, was a prominent German manufacturer of metal type. It was founded in 1837 by Johann Christian Bauer in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The company published typefaces by several eminent designers, including Lucian Bernhard, Konrad Friedrich Bauer, Walter Braun, Heinrich Jost, Imre Reiner, Friedrich Hermann Ernst Schneidler, Emil Rudolf Weiß, and Heinrich Wienyck.
In 1972 the headquarters in Frankfurt closed, and the rights to the typefaces were transferred to the former subsidiary company Fundición Tipográfica Neufville in Barcelona, which now markets digital versions of many of the typefaces.
