Gabriele was the name of his granddaughter. In 1957 Max Grundig, German industrialist, bought the two companies Triumph and Adler and merged them into his office machine label 'Triumph Adler'. Thus, 'Gabriele' became the name of a popular series of typewriters in postwar Germany.
We have chosen this name for our series of typewriter fonts in reminiscence of those machines and all the ladies (called Gabriele or not) that used to type on them from the 1950s to the '80s.
Ah, yes, another typewriter font.
Well sort of. We are aware that there are quite a few of them around. But unlike Gabriele, most are not free for commercial use and/or have problems with umlauts and other extended characters. Gabriele has a complete West European charset, the ribbon members even many East European characters. These are monospaced fonts. The characters have all the same width - with the exception of the "ellipsis" character ("...") which is of course three spaces wide. Naturally, these fonts have and need no kerning.
Gabriele Bad is named after the somewhat darker and grungy look. Inside, she's really nice. Looking similar to the other two but not based on Rakowski's work. This is the darkest one of the three. She's not so good at Eastern European languages, but she can type Turkish fluently.
Gabriele Bad font contains 229 defined characters and 213 unique glyphs. The font contains characters from the following unicode character ranges: Basic Latin (93), Latin-1 Supplement (95), Latin Extended-A (11), Latin Extended-B (1), Spacing Modifier Letters (6), General Punctuation (17), Superscripts and Subscripts (1), Currency Symbols (1), Letterlike Symbols (1), Mathematical Operators (2).
