Gothic and Old English Alphabets: 100 Complete Fonts (Dover Pictorial Archives) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gothic or black-letter script, practiced by many medieval scribes, was a principal model for printer's type when printing was first invented. Characteristic thick strokes and stress on points and angles give the style a power and dignity that transcends the temporal.

Noted typographer and printing historian Dan X. Solo presents an impressive collection of 100 complete fonts of Old English and Gothic typefaces, derived from the immensely influential black-letter style. Choose from such classic type styles as: Abbey English, Alte Schwabacher, Blackstone, Caxton Initials, Dolbey, Engraver's Old English, Germania, Goudy Medieval, Lautenbach Initials, Munich Fraktur, Old Gothic Initials, Trump Deutsch, and 88 others.

Almost all fonts include complete upper- and lower-case alphabets—many feature numerals and various punctuation marks. Attractive, versatile, and copyright-free, these alphabets are ready for immediate use on stationery, newsletters, posters, signs, greeting cards, and more. In fact, the high cost of setting specialty typefaces ensures that just a one-time use of material in this book will more than repay the cost of the entire volume.

Graphic artists, illustrators, and designers will want to own this money-saving archive of elegant, ready-to-use Old English and Gothic fonts—unsurpassed for forceful, eye-catching appeal.

Original Dover (1984) publication.
