Fraktur Anatomy ?

Can anyone point me to good soars for Fraktur Anatomy ?

I saw the font "Extrafette Bernhard Fraktur 2013" here:

http://sugarscroll.de/all/work/rekonstruiert/attachment/rekonstruiert_1/

Here is the full alphabet:

http://luc.devroye.org/ChristophSchwedhelm--ExtrafetteBernhardFraktur-20...

It is based on the font "Extra Fette Bernhard Fraktur 1912" (Source: http://luc.devroye.org/fonts-27018.html).

The font was revived in 2013 by Christoph Schwedhelm, who renamed it "Extrafette Bernhard Fraktur 2013.

He used it in his book on frakturs titled "Rekonstruiert" - the first image in this message is the front cover:

My question is:

Can anyone help me find "Extrafette Bernhard Fraktur 2013" - or a font which resembles is very, very similar?


Alphabet Soup Type Founders and Michael Doret are proud to announce the Release of Dark Angel, a “blackletter/hybrid” font. This font had its genesis in a logo sketch for the Anaheim Angels baseball team—thus its name.
Type purists may be appalled by the lack of adherence to traditional forms, but the font should be seen as only “in the spirit of” blackletter, and attempting something that hasn’t been seen or done before—something that feels traditional, yet at the same time fresh and perhaps unexpected.

I have been using the Unifraktur Maguntia font in Microsoft Word, and had this idea to use a macro to automatically insert ligatures and special characters such as the long s. Does anyone know if this has been done before and if there is already such a tool in existence? David Manthey used the same idea on his 18th century Caslon font:

One of the nice things about Unifraktur Maguntia is that it includes all the necessary ligatures and historic characters. Here is some more information:

I am looking for a script that would have been used in Germany (specifically the Hessen-Kassel region) in the last quarter of the 18th century. As I understand it, this would have been some type of Fraktur with the long s and ligatures. Perhaps someone here could point me in the right direction?

Hello typophiles,

After having sat lazily on an interest in Type Design for far too long, I've finally found the courage (through the help of a course at University) to delve into the wonderful world of fontlab.

I was hoping for some critique of what I've got so far, I have been working with a strict grid system which has worked well most of the time although I'm still having a lot of trouble with the s, z, x and c. Getting the spacing right has also been quite hard, (especially with the extremities on the r and e) and has led me to create a series of Ligatures which I believe solves the problem and adds more visual interest. I set these up as dlig in fontlab because I read somewhere that it was appropriate however, I'm tempted to just put them through as liga. Advisable?

We welcome the very talented Alisa Nowak and her Eskapade to TypeTogether's family.

The Eskapade family is the result of research confronting Roman and German blackletter forms, mainly fraktur letters. The idea is to adapt these broken forms for a contemporary use instead of creating a faithful revival of a historical typeface.

Hello,
wondering what this font is called?
Thanks in advance!

I have not been able to find out why san serif fonts such as Franklin Gothic are called Gothic. Fraktura and similar blackletter typefaces are also called Gothic. Can anyone point me to a book/text/site, where this difference — or similarity in name — originated? Or, may I hear from an expert in the house?

Hi guys
I have this cover of a french magazine from the 70s (no worries it's not fascist magazine), and I need to remake the text for a friend.
You talents of typography might give me a hand in finding the name.
I know it's a Fraktur gothic geometrical, and I'm looking for a book named "Fraktur mon amour" if I can find it there.

I supose that the 'Hitler' word is drawn but what I'll looking for is the baseline 'Le filet se Ressere'

Thanks alot

Hi,
I'm searching the name of the type from the baseline. I'm afraid that the Name it's lettering. No worries guys, it's not a facist magacine, it laughs about it.
Thanks alot

I haven't been able to track down this particular font, any ideas?

if you like modern and geometric fonts and blackletter as well, have a look at the typophile post »Fracmetrica Black .otf«

the free-font »Fracmetrica Black« is a modern and geometric blackletter with several opentype-features like ligatures, case-sensitives, text figures.
It's kind of condensed and has a high contrast. The typeface's construction is based on an isometric 60°-grid.
