Download 1536 Civilite Manual

This font was created inspired from a handwritten copy of the “Brief story of the second journey in Canada” (1535) by French explorer Jacques Cartier. It is an early "Civilité" manual style, closely looking like the "Civilité" script font carved by Robert Granjon a few years later and still strongly influenced by blackletters forms, clearly visible in the capitals or long s, d, e, f or t forms. (Look at our “1557 Civilite Granjon Pro” and the latest “1638 Civilite Manual”). It is containing Western (including Celtic) and Northern European, Icelandic, Baltic, Eastern, Central European and Turquish diacritics.

Historical forms, titling alternates and the numerous lower alternates or ligatures made the font looking like a real various hand.

1534 Fraktur Font Family Download

Download 1534 Fraktur

This family was inspired by the early Fraktur style font used circa 1530 by Jacob Otther, printer in Strasbourg (Alsace-France) for German language printed books.

Although it is an early Fraktur pattern, it is easy to see the characteristic differences with the Schwabacher style (look at 1538 Schwabacher), like in the small d, o or y... and the capitals (look at the H, K, T...).

Frequently, Schwabacher and Fraktur were used together in the same book : Fraktur style for the main and Schwabacher for marginalia and comments. More…

This font contains standard ligatures and German historical ligatures (German double s, long s, ts...) and diacritics (special ummlaut “e superscript” and "∞" instead of dieresis with letters a, o and u,) naturally, we have added numerous letters lacking in the original to permit a contemporary use of the font.
