Art Nouveau Typography for Hebrew
0

A friend of mine asked if I knew of any Hebrew fonts in an Art Nouveau style. I didn't know of any digital type, but I thought something could be found in the work of Boris Schatz's original Betzalel School, or perhaps something could be engineered from the work of Arthur Szyk. But I also thought that a few of you who enjoy this forum might share your knowledge of art nouveau Hebrew type and whether any digital fonts were ever made.

the font Frank Ruhl designed by Rafael Frank is a text font with high legibility and it's design was influenced by art nouveau, albeit it's more subtle.
