Fraktur mon Amour

fraktur-0

I mentioned this (obliquely) a while back, and I’m not sure why but I only ordered the book for myself recently (it’s also available on Amazon.de). It’s a beautiful book, full of blackletter samples, and for each face in the book there’s a wonderful abstract design created using it which would make fantastic posters in their own right. When closed, from the size and shape of it you’d be forgiven for thinking that it’s an old bible, though the glorious pink perhaps gives it away that it isn’t. I love that pink.
