Fraktur Font

fraktur font

Fraktur is one of the most used broken letter fonts today to invoke a nostalgic or rustic feeling. The font was designed in the 19th century and from the beginning intended as an advertisement typeface.

The lower case letters have a gothic character with only the ornamental flourishes making them broken letters, while the capital letters are more characteristic of broken letter typefaces.

Fraktur is a true mix of styles, not unusual for typefaces created at the turn of the 19th century.
