The German cursive (Latin: currere run) is a scrolling text and up to the middle of the 20th Century, the common transport magazine in Germany. In Switzerland, it was during the 19th Century used as a transport, administrative and protocol writing. Typographically it is among the broken scripts.
It is characterized by acute angles ("Pointed Font") (as opposed to round, Latin script). In this form it has been taught in schools for over 100 years. Between individual manuscripts, there are big differences.
Colloquial German script fonts are often called Sütterlinschrift. Strictly speaking Sütterlinschrift a special school output script that was developed in 1911 by graphic artist Ludwig Suetterlin. The Sütterlinschrift was only a few years in the 1920s in the school use and was replaced by the very similar German commercial font.
With the normal type-decree in 1941, the German cursive (in the form of
Traffic Script) abolished as school starting writing in favor of the Latin alphabet.
