    Elfen-Fraktur is monolinear blackletter typeface, that was originally designed by M. Beck and published in 1919. This revival comes in two extended versions with a complete Latin 1 character set: Elfen-Fraktur A uses the original blackletter skeletons and is suitable for setting texts with traditional German typesetting and orthography rules. Elfen-Fraktur B includes modernized letter designs for a broader and more legible use in various languages. A free bonus is the set of 22 border elements called Elfen-Schmuck.

    Elfen-Fraktur A

    »Recht ſo, kleiner Geſelle! Wohl geſprungen und tüchtig!« Aber in demſelben Augenblick, wo er dieſe Worte ausgeſprochen hatte, verfinſterte sich die Nacht und die Elfen verſchwanden mit Blitzesſchnelle.

    Elfen-Fraktur B

    “Bravo! little fellow,” said he, “well kicked and strong.” But the instant he uttered the words the night was darkened, and the fairies vanished with the speed of lightning.
