Konrad Kachelhofen was a printer in the city of Leipzig beginning around 1483. He printed many works by contemporary authors and also many of the classics. He acquired an unusually large amount of typefaces for his shop, a place that included a wine bar and book store. Konrad probably died in 1529 after passing his business on to his son-in-law Melchior Lotter.

This particular face is based on the Typ.8:170G GfT101 Gesamtkatalog der Wiegendrucke. It comes with two weights in both OTF and TTF formats and contains 967 defined characters.
