Wolpe drew the Pegasus family as a text counterpart to his Albertus design. At first glance the two faces look very similar. A closer inspection, however, reveals many subtle differences drawn to enable Pegasus to perform well in a wide range of sizes. The metal fonts enjoyed moderate success but were not made into phototype fonts as typesetting technology progressed.Wolpe Pegasus is a digital interpretation of Wolpes original design capturing the distinctive and somewhat idiosyncratic nature of the typeface. Its two weights and corresponding italic counterparts are lively designs that excel in both hardcopy and interactive environments. Wolpe Pegasus is one of the five suites of designs in the Berthold Wolpe Collection of typefaces.Wolpe was born in Germany, and was a student of Rudolf Koch. He began his career at the Klingspor foundry in Offenbach but moved to England in 1932. While Wolpe designed several typefaces, his main body of work was the many book jackets he designed for Faber & Faber publishers. Wolpe died in 1989 at the age of 84.
