"Bauhaus-Style" Font Identification Guide - Part 2

ROUND SEMISANS

Part 2 continues the "Bauhaus-style" Font Identification Guide with the circular letterforms as in Part 1 of the Guide, with the addition of some serifs to a few of the letters. Other than the added serifs these are much like the other Round Sans fonts that are most like Bayer's best known design (Bauhaus) (See Introduction).

The fonts on this page (and its continuation pages) all share the feature that circles dominate the designs and serifs, while present, are not on all letters. It is my subjective judgement to group these fonts together.

The complete "Bauhaus-Style" Font Identification Guide consists of the Introduction followed by seven parts that separate the type faces according to their dominant geometric and/or typographic design features.

The seven parts are:

Part 1: Round Sans; Part 2: Round Semisans; Part 3: Oval; Part 4: Oblong; Part 5: Squared;
Part 6: Curved; and Part 7: Uncial

I welcome your comments, as well as suggestions for other faces to be included in this Guide. - Mike Yanega
