Haas Unica

I was wondering if the typophile and general type and design community could petition to have the type face/family of Haas Unica to be commercially available again?

It is such a wonderful san serif face and it is truly a shame that the type and design community cannot use this face.

Regards, Sal

Isn't the real question who owns the IP of Haas?

Linotype claims ownership, so that's where the petition should be directed. I'll sign.

I thought Scangraphic also claimed it. Has that been definitively resolved?

I will also include it in my forthcoming book about forgotten typefaces. if you have any documents about it, they will be very much welcome.

David - Corey Holms wrote an article for Grafik two years ago. It's published in this thread along with a lot of other Unica and Gurtler info.

And here are some pics I took of Unica in use at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin.

Let's leave it as dimly-glimpsed Grail-like myth -- in reality, like all sequels, it would be a let down.
Helserif, anyone?
