Blackletter fonts

Blackletter is a style of writing that has been used throughout Europe for centuries. Nowadays it is mostly used for decorative reasons only, even in Germany, where Fraktur was common until the middle of the 20th century.

We are not trying to turn back the wheel of time. But on this page, we'd like to share a few of these beautiful faces for special occasions. Starting with Brinkmann and the new face "Traditio", we hope to expand this collection in the near future.

There is an extra page on special characters in blackletter and how you can access them in Fontgrube fonts.
