The Nazi edict banning Gothic types was obviously not enforced, by the
way. There had been a good deal of mixing of Gothic and other faces during
Weimar and before, and the mix continued into the Nazi era. This from my
own observations, e.g. at the Bundesarchiv in Koblenz, which had an
interesting show of political posters last summer.
