This 1538 Schwabacher was based on a font used by Georg Rhau in Wittemberg (Germany) to print Des Babsts Hercules […], a German pamphlet against roman catholicism written by Johannes Kymeus.
The original font has a relatively complete set of characters including “long s”, but also the special german types like k, ﬂ or ‰, ˆ, ¸…. A few omissions were remedied, and accented letters were added. A render sheet, enclosed with font files, help to identify them on keyboard.
It can be used as web-site titles, posters and fliers, editing ancient texts, menus or greeting cards as a very decorative font…
Although this font remains clear and easy to read from 8 or 9 points on screen, it is clearly designed for print works.
