Linotype Compendio™ font family


Designed by  Christian Bauer in 1997

Christian Bauer

The German designer Christian Bauer created the display font Linotype Compendio™ in 1997. This font is based on the basic forms of Transitional faces of the 17th century. The outer contours of the letters are purposely raw and irregular, much like alphabets printed on low-quality paper. The legibility of the font is thus reduced, making it necessary to use this font only for shorter texts or headlines, but it is exactly this characteristic which lends Linotype Compendio its distinctiveness.
