What image do you have in mind when you hear the typeface name “Kabel”? Let me give away the main thesis of this article right away: There is not the Kabel typeface. Planning a revival of “Kabel” therefore raises the first question: Where do you begin? Between Rudolf Koch’s original design in metal type for the Gebrüder Klingspor Type Foundry in Offenbach am Main in 1927, their face-lift “Neu-Kabel”, various phototype resurrections, eminently Victor Caruso’s interpretation of Kabel for ITC, and Linotype’s digital version, lie several transitions in technology that caused changes in character sets, disproportions and new weight concepts. Marc Schütz discovered his own path in this conglomerate and presents a “Neue Kabel” that overcomes some of its historical burden.
