New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I’m designing a book jacket on Nazi WWII propaganda and would like to use type that accurately represents the period. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I’m particularly confused about whether or not to use a blackletter typeface. I’ve found a lot of information explaining that Nazi’s rejected blackletter typefaces in the early 1940’s. However, most propaganda pieces I’ve found online use some variation of blackletter.
My other idea was to use Frutiger because that is the typeface of the current Bundeswehr (http://users.ncrvnet.nl/mstol/bundeswehr.html).
Thanks in advance for your help!
