Font >> Display - 1523 Holbein OTF 2140 by GLC Foundry @ CreativeMarket
File Size: 385.21 KB; Vector: Yes.
This typeface is an attempt to offer as a font the well known marvelous Hans Holbein "Death Alphabet", first published in 1523. We have tried to preserve as much as possible the spirit and appearance of the original Initials set ¡ª incredibly fine and enriched with detailed figures ¡ª trying at the same time to create a font not too complex to be usable. Neverteless, the font files are large, and when used, the decorated initials may appear on screen more slowly than ordinary characters. (Minimum size recommended : 96 pts)
We are offering here two standard alphabets (no accented characters) : Initials and capitals. We have reconstructed the missing letters : J and U, Eth, Lslash, Thorn and Oslash.
82 Glyphs. With numerals. No punctuation, no accented characters.
Keywords: decorative, drawn, engraved, german, headline, historic, historical, initials, ornamental, lettrines, decorated letters.
