Description

Blackletter / Olde English – 14pt – 7a 4A

Blackletter / Olde English – 14pt – 7a – 4A. This is a letterpress fount of the Gothic script and is available here in 12pt.  It is UK type height.

Blackletter (sometimes black letter), also known as Gothic scriptGothic minuscule, or Textura, was a script used throughout Western Europe from approximately 1150 until the 17th century. It continued to be commonly used for the Danish language until 1875, and for German, Estonian and Latvian until the 1940s. Fraktur is a notable script of this type, and sometimes the entire group of blackletter faces is incorrectly referred to as Fraktur. Blackletter is sometimes referred to as Old English, but it is not to be confused with the Old English language (or Anglo-Saxon), which predates blackletter by many centuries and was written in the insular script or in Futhorc.”
