Background

Genath is a free interpretation of a baroque type based on a 1720 specimen likely showing Johann Wilhelm Haas first design for the Genath Foundry in Basle, Switzerland. Soon renamed Haas’sche Schriftgiesserei, the very same foundry will produce two centuries later a better known typeface.
