CHISTOSO (Spanish for funny, amusing, witty) is my digital revival — completely redrawn — of “Majestic” by Julius E. F. Gipkens (1883 – 1968). I found its original design in “Hauptprobe in gedrängter Form der bauerschen Giesserei Frankfurt am Main.” (That is, Bavarian Foundry’s Condensed Specimen Book, 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 (World Exhibition, Brussels 1910 Grand Prize). Majestic was published some time after that date, probably before 1920 (Luc Devroye dates it 1914.)
CHISTOSO is a bold serif display font. Its use of stars and spirals give it a light-hearted and whimsical appearance. Discretionary ligatures abound in CHISTOSO, and there are many useful symbols for example, arrows, currency, manicules, a pilcrow etcetera.
