What is the New Berolina® font?
A disconnected script designed by Martin Wilke for the Monotype Corporation in 1965; Wilke designed several other scripts for German foundries, namely Berthold and Stempel.
Berolina means “from Berlin” and the name was probably occasioned by the erection of the Berlin Wall; Berolina was the name of a 1930s typeface from the Wöllmer foundry, thus the name New Berolina.
Because connecting scripts were very difficult to achieve in metal type, disconnected scripts were popular during the 1950s and 1960s and were used chiefly for advertising and other display purposes.
