Linotype Puritas™ font family

Designed by Gerd Sebastian Jakob in 1999
Joerg Ewald Meißner
The German designers Gerd Sebastian Jakob and Jörg Ewald Meißner developed the Linotype Puritas family in 1999. The family, which has six text styles as well as a ornament set, displays a very geometric design, which harks back to the German modernist experiments with typography and lettering from the 1920s. The letters in Linotype Puritas Light, Linotype Puritas Medium, and Linotype Puritas Bold all have a slight slant to them. Not to be confused with an italic-grade slant, which may be found in the Light, Medium, and Bold Italic styles, these acute slants add a dynamic quality to text.
The Linotype Puritas Ornaments font contains several dingbats and border elements, all drawn in the same line style as the companion letters.
The entire Linotype Puritas family is included in the Take Type 4 collection from Linotype GmbH."
