Several years ago, I have already created a blackletter for the PC (or rather the original building, modeled). This scripture haunts under the name "Schwaben Alt" through countless font sites on the internet and has found its way into many font collections. Even then I was looking for works that were adapted to the specific rules of the blackletter set. Was, however, mostly only "pseudo-Blackletter Fonts" without the fracture-specific "special characters" and ligatures that make admittedly Anglo-Saxon readers life difficult when you have learned the rules only once, but considerably easier to read.

"Schaben Alt" (after "Alte Schwabacher") but was mainly known as a typeface - so do not write anything to the text. So I continued to search for the Brotschriften of the art of printing around 1900. Unfortunately, I found only here either commercial solutions that require additional special programs, the use of ligatures as manage - that was too expensive.

So I took some 100 years old books - Photographed some pages with the macro function on a digital camera (The scanner solves the small font is not enough to) and generated from the font "Leipzig Fraktur"

The name "Leipzig Fraktur" was actually a self-goers, as almost all German books of this time were printed in Leipzig and this script just based on the letters Leipzig printing material. Who can tell me the original name of this font - I get to add you!
AAAaaa
