"Extrafette Bernhard Fraktur 2013" - where to find?
0

I saw the font "Extrafette Bernhard Fraktur 2013" here:

http://sugarscroll.de/all/work/rekonstruiert/attachment/rekonstruiert_1/

Here is the full alphabet:

http://luc.devroye.org/ChristophSchwedhelm--ExtrafetteBernhardFraktur-20...

It is based on the font "Extra Fette Bernhard Fraktur 1912" (Source: http://luc.devroye.org/fonts-27018.html).

The font was revived in 2013 by Christoph Schwedhelm, who renamed it "Extrafette Bernhard Fraktur 2013.

He used it in his book on frakturs titled "Rekonstruiert" - the first image in this message is the front cover:

My question is:

Can anyone help me find "Extrafette Bernhard Fraktur 2013" - or a font which resembles is very, very similar?

Thanks a lot for any help!

Have you contacted Christoph Schwedhelm?

Yes, I've contacted him via Institut für Buchforschung which published the book.

But as yet, I've had no reply.

Look through "Fraktur mon Amour" for a comparable one.

Or you could commission somebody to make a custom revival (which BTW you could optionally completely own, even in terms of reselling it).
Hint, hint... :-)

Because of your post I've started working on a revival of Lucian Bernhard Fraktur Extrafette a year ago. I have a few examples on Dribbble and the alphabet is almost complete. I will post the font on Myfonts.com soon.

A superb fat blackletter with an organic tone. It fills the page with the assertion "I am here. Bold and sassy!"
Such a relief after the proliferation of emaciated geometrical angularities masquerading as blackletter.
Look forward to your final product.
