German typographer, graphic designer, painter, teacher and poet.
As a poet, his texts were set to music by Jan Sibelius and Max Kretschmar. He designed wallpapers, fabrics, furniture, stained-glass windows, company logos, ceramics, and was a muralist for country houses and ocean liners. Although he claimed that his book work was a secondary interest after his water-colour painting, his outpouring of book work was impressive: he designed books and magazines - the typographic arrangement of the pages, and, as required, the bindings, the dust-jackets, end-papers, title-pages.
He created the following fonts : Weiss fracture (1913), the category of the French Renaissance Antiqua belonging Weiss Antiqua (1928), Weiss-Gothic (1936) and Weiss Rotunda (1937).
He died 7 November 1942.
