My goodness, even blackletter (or Old English), has many variations of it, namely: Fraktur, Textura Quadrata (with diamond legs), Textura Precisus (with diamond legs stolen), Bastard Secretary (Yes, bastard), Batarde (it’s French cousin), Schwabacher, and a far-off cousin, Rotunda.

I chose to learn Fraktur because it’s (to me) the easiest. It really is a different type of words I’m accustomed to, with its diamond heads and diamond legs and almost no curves…

Oh well! :)

Don’t fear, I’m not permanently switching my blog font to this.
