    Notes: This font contains glyphs and/or features which are only accessible with fully OpenType-savvy applications.

    This typeface was digitized from a letterpress font originally published in 1916 by the type foundry of Julius Klinkhardt in Leipzig. The 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. 

    Pavillon Gotisch cannot be licensed directly. It is exclusively available to supporters of the non-profit organization running the printing museum Pavillon-Presse and to supporters of the Schriftkontor community websites Typography.Guru and Typografie.info
