About Marconi® font family

Marconi was created by Hermann Zapf in 1973 for the Digiset, a digital typesetting system produced by the German firm Dr.-Ing. Rudolf Hell GmbH. Zapf's design was developed as a text face for books and magazines. The round forms of the Marconi follow the principle of the superellipse. The lowercase letters are enlarged as the result of reading tests, while the capital letters are slightly reduced. The 8 point size - normally used for newspapers - look more like 9 1/2 point.

Marconi is a legible typeface with its large and open lowercase letters it is ideal for long text blocks in newspaper, book and magazine production.

In 1990, Linotype AG merged with Dr.-Ing Rudolf Hell GmbH, forming the Linotype-Hell AG (today Linotype GmbH). Since then, Linotype has been the official source of all fonts that were originally designed for the Hell Corporation. Linotype has also improved the typefaces using new technologies, including OpenType.
