New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I have made a new blackletter type, called Germanica, based mainly on that of Fust and Schöffer (c. 1457). The font includes a number of ligatures and scribal abbreviations. It’s an Opentype font, and it can be downloaded (free of charge) from www.iol.ie/~sob/clonna.html.
