Chistoso Font


Chistoso (Spanish for “funny, amusing, witty”) is a digital revival (completely redrawn) of “Majestic” by Julius E. F. Gipkens (1883 – 1968). Its original metal type version was found in Hauptprobe in gedrängter Form der bauerschen Giesserei Frankfurt am Main. No copyright date is provided, but this foundry was established in 1837 according to the title page. However, page 5 states that the Bayern Foundry won the Weltausstellung Brüssel 1910 Grand Prix. Majestic was published some time after that date.
