About Fruktur

Creator:

License: SIL Open Font License, 1.1

Foundry: Sorkin Type Co

Fruktur initially appears to be a playful and powerful black letter type with a warm friendly feeling. However its construction is closer to that of an upright italic. Fruktur offers some of the feeling of a black letter but with higher legibility and greater utility than is typical of black letter type. Fruktur will be most useful from medium to large sizes.

Updated: January 2016, to v1.004 with additional language support, improved hinting (visible in Windows browsers at smaller font sizes) and other minor fixes.
