Blackletter Hand Font

Blackletter Hand Font

Made by Nick Matavka

A classic Germanic blackletter hand. Used when writing Germanic languages with Romance ones---in typesetting, you'd use Fraktur for German or English and Antiqua for French or Italian; in handwriting, you'd use Kurrentschrift and Ausgangsschrift respectively. This is the older, pre-Suetterlin variant; as such, it is written on an angle and with a pen, as opposed to vertically with a biro. The "round" or terminal lowercase "s" is on the # key. Long "s" is used otherwise and is on the lowercase "s" key.

Hi,

This is a really beautiful script, indeed the most beautiful I've been able to find along the lines of what I'm searching for. However, as it's not designed for english, it's very difficult to read in that language, which was unfortunately my intent.

I am writing my first book, in the style of an illuminated manuscript (really it's been written but it's the illustrations and formatting I'm going through at the moment, which is why I've been searching for a text font that's free for commercial use). It's a "children's novel", though one I consider deep and meaningful and full of archetypes (and which most people would consider scary for their child, but those are the best ones).

I cannot afford to buy a text font at the moment, and I was wondering if you would consider making a variation of this elegant hand-script for English purposes? I would give you full credit in the aknowledgments, which might help your career in type-fonts if the book takes off. Please let me know, I'm not sure how this website works but you can contact me at sentinel (at) thedreaming.is.

I would be happy to send you some of what I've done so far. Please let me know :)
