It was some time in the 1800s when Justus Erich Walbaum conceptualized this font type. Since then this Weimar-based typeface ranked together with Bodoni and Didot as among the great modern-style European typefaces. The 18th and early 19th centuries were the period that marked the popularity of the modern typefaces. They were distinctly styled with ultimate vertical stress and fine strokes contrasted with bold hairlines.
Meanwhile, Walbaum’s contemporary version is close to its original version which makes it different from the others. This is made possible because of its xtra-large height and wider caps size. Some of its characters are uniquely different, especially its “b” because of the absence of footserif in it. Also, the lowercase of letter “a” has a square-like shape while the “Q” is tailed with asymmetric juncture.
Indeed, Walbaum is the most unique of all. Besides that, it is legible, graceful, flexible and compellingly warm. It is the perfect for simple textual descriptions or for purposes of signage and other attention-getting remarks!
Walbaum was made purposely for all sorts of business writing endeavours. Hence, you are assured that you will be able to deliver the message you have in mind. So, what are you waiting for? Use this font type and surely you will never regret using it.
