    FDI Wiking

    Wiking by Heinz König was originally released in 1925 at the type foundry J. D. Trennert & Sohn in Hamburg. FDI Wiking is a carefully crafted revival released for free under the Open Font License. This was made possible by the generous support of people around the world, who pledged for this project on Kickstarter. FDI Wiking has around 400 glyphs covering Western, Eastern and Central European Latin. Many characters have alternative glyphs, so both traditional German blackletter typesetting and international use with improved legibility is possible. We thank all Kickstarter supporters: Akira Y., Alex, Alexey G., André M., Anne W., André U., Dallas R., Stefan S., Eckhard P., Eric S., Erik S., Fernando D., Fliegender, Frank L., Gunnar P., Gregory K., Grischka P., Gunnar L., Günter S., Gunther S., Hans S., Hans-Ulrich K., Harald E., Helmut H., Henning L., Holger J., Hylbrand-J.

    Wiking on Kickstarter

    The Wiking font was designed by Heinz König and published in 1925 by the type foundry J. D. Trennert & Sohn in Hamburg. This unique and contemporary blackletter design has never been professionally revived. But you can help make it happen. We want to create a careful and complete digitization of the font and offer it for free under the Open Font License so that the original design by Heinz König can get the attention and use it deserves. Please consider supporting our project and check out our Kickstarter campaign here: http://kck.st/38dMzEL

    New release: Pavillon Gotisch

    After Elfen-Fraktur and Krimhilde, Pavillon Gotisch is our third revival of a German blackletter font from the early 20th century. The original letterpress font is available in two sizes in the printing museum Pavillon-Presse in Weimar and was digitized from prints made in the museum. The design was extended to a full Latin 1 character set as “Pavillon Gotisch A” and contains the original ligatures and swash letters accessible through OpenType. The second style (Pavillon Gotisch B) contains “romanized” glyph designs to make the font more legible to everyone who isn’t familiar with the traditional German blackletter shapes.
