Help with these two European newspaper titles: blackletter mastheads of Aftenposten and FAZ - custom

Greetings type enthusiasts. On a recent trip to Europe I was browsing the newsstands and came across these two lovely typefaces. I thought they were great. I'd like to buy them/download them if possible for my own uses and I was hoping someone out there could help me identify them. Much thanks in advance.

I don’t think that there is an exact match for the masthead of »Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung« (FAZ). You might browse Dieter Steffmann’s collection for a start. For the headlines within the paper, FAZ employed a special version of Fette Gotisch called »FAZ Fraktur« made by URW, which unfortunately is not used anymore since about two years.

That's excellent that's for those links. Does anyone have an idea of what the Aftenposten font could be?

Aftenposten isn’t a font either. Newspaper masthead almost always are custom designed.
I browsed through various blackletter specimen, but couldn’t find anything similar. The round e is pretty special, and so is the A.
