After last year’s successful Kickstarter campaign to revive the blackletter font Wiking, we are planning an even more elaborate project this year with a total of 6 fonts. And you can help to make it happen! We want to revive styles from a blackletter font family originally released during the 1920s and 1930s at the type foundry Ludwig Wagner.
If this campaign reaches it funding goal, a carefully crafted, complete digitization of two styles from the Deutschmeister font family will be created and offered for free under the Open Font License.
In addition, two color fonts will be created from the original letterpress fonts, so you can type with them on the computer as if you would create a letterpress layout.
The campaign runs until March 22, 2021.
