New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Has anyone else noticed the beautiful blackletter typeface that is used in the New York Times Style Magazine? It is the best blackletter typeface I’ve come across in a long time but I can’t figure out what the name of it is, if its for sale, or if it was created specifically for the magazine. The only things I’ve uncovered is that the T logo itself was designed by Matthew Carter. I thought that maybe Carter designed the accompanying blackletter typeface as well but I’ve not been able to track it down. I have actually e-mailed the New York Times asking about the name of the typeface, but of course they haven’t answered back. Any clues, suggestions, answers would be helpful. Thanks.

P.S. I've had one person answer and say that it is called NYT-FrakturSix, but I can't find that font for purchase or download and that is what I am interested in doing.
