German calligrapher Rudolf Koch was educated as an engraver, painter and draftsman. He designed numerous font metrics, such as Gothic, fracture, chancery, but also Antiqua and italics, so-called script fonts for schools, and worked as a graphic artist, especially for the Insel-Verlag. Koch became one of the best-known German calligraphers ever. Koch taught at the Arts and Crafts School in Offenbach and after World War I, in 1918, opened a workshop, training pupils in typography, calligraphy, wood-cutting and other craft based skills. His other focus was the renewal of the church’s craft-plant.
