Anyone know if a digital version of this BlackLetter face exists anywhere? This sample was xeroxed out of an old type book by a client of mine who wants to use it for a project. Any help would be appreciated!

Fleischmann it is, but I'm not so sure about Stempel. He worked for Ensched

Thanks for your help you guys!

That Blackletter resource [http://www.romana-hamburg.de/fraktur1.htm] is amazing - is it actually a type foundry? Any other unique BlackLetter links I should know about?

Hi Stephen, hi Yves, hi all,
It's an honour to be welcomed by such harmonious flourish of trumpets.
The Druk story is kinda off-topic here, but let's say that all parties decided that it was time for something new, and one party (guess who) that it was time for something less expensive. I'm now thinking about an English-language anthology of 4 years of Druk. I may have a publisher for it, I only need a volunteer with impeccable English to edit the text....

Any luck with the Fleischmann, Dave?

Dave, I cross-posted my question. Glad to see you're happy.

I'd like to add that it's good to see you here, Jan.
I was there for your presentation at TypeCon2002
and enjoyed it very much. I hope you stick around.

What happened to Druk!? I was just about to subscribe!
