Beton Open - Heinrich Jost
Beton Open is a variant of the Beton family designed by Henrich Jost (10.13.1889 - 9.27.1948 Magdeburg, Germany) while working for Bauer Type Foundry. Beton Open is one variant of a family that includes at least twelve other styles including: Beton, EF Beton, Beton Bold Compressed, Beton Bold Condensed, Beton BQ, Beton Compressed Bold, Beton Demi, Beton Extra Bold, Beton Extra Bold (Monotype Imaging), Beton Extra Bold (URW), Beton Outline & Beton Stencil.
Besides his work on Fraktur (1925), Atrax (1926), Bauer Bodoni (1926), Aeterna (1927) and Beton (1930-1936) it is believed that Jost also worked from Renner's early sketches to add detail to his Futura typeface.
