Rugged is the American Wood Type Manufacturing Company’s copy of Neuland, a foundry type which was handcut – without the use of patterns – in 1923 by Rudolf Koch for the Klingspor foundry in Germany. For a more erudite description of the design and enduring appeal of this face, see Koch’s Neuland by Richard Kegler.
