Trump Mediaeval (also German Trump Mediäval) is an old-style serif typeface designed by Georg Trump. It was released in 1954 both by the C. E. Weber foundry as metal type and Linotype for hot metal typesetting. [1] Despite a common association with blackletter typefaces, the mediaeval name refers to the German typographical term for roman typefaces dark in color like the old style Venetian typefaces. [2]
