      Paul Friedrich August Renner was born on August 9, in Wernigerode in the Harz Paul Renner book, a part of Saxony-Anhalt, which at that time fell within the kingdom of Prussia. Tassea typeface is a revival of Renner's typeface Steile Futura. He resisted the polarization of political ideologies in Weimar Germany, and tried to select the most reasonable elements from both right and left. It is extremely effective as a display font, but can also be pleasant to read in longer form as a text face.

      InEdward Johnston devised a geometric face for use on station nameplates in the London Underground; inat the Paul Renner book Bauhaus, Herbert Bayer released his own geometric sans serif typeface, Paul Renner book, which eliminated all uppercase letters; inEric Gill developed Gill Sans, derived explicitly from Johnston's Underground face. Both Paul Renner and Futura are often associated with the Bauhaus movement, but there is some debate about the interplay between them. He utilized his intellect and aesthetic skills to alter the fundamental landscape of material and spiritual form of life. In those years Renner undertook the design of the now ubiquitous typeface Futura. He resisted the polarization of political ideologies in Weimar Germany, and tried to select the most reasonable elements from both right and left. Paul Renner- Bridge between Traditional and Modern Design German typographer Paul Renner is best known as the designer of the typeface Futura, which stands as a landmark of modern graphic design.

      Tassea typeface is a revival of Renner's typeface Steile Futura. Paul Renner is a tour de force in both content and form. An early and prominent Paul Renner book of the Deutscher Werkbund, he was committed to the values of quality in design, always tempered by a certain sobriety of attitude and style. Consequently he took his role as a figurehead of the Munich Meisterschule seriously. Another one of his creations, Architype Renner is evolved from his early experimental exploration of geometric letterforms. Twentieth Century is another typeface which was inspired by Futura.
