1538 SchwabacherPublisher: GLC
1538 Schwabacher was released by GLC. 1538 Schwabacher includes 1 style. p > This 1538 Schwabacher was based upon a typeface used by Georg Rhau in Wittemberg (Germany) to print Des Babsts Hercules [...], a German pamphlet against roman catholicism composed by Johannes Kymeus.

The initial typeface has a reasonably complete set of characters including "long s", but likewise the special german types like k, fl or ‰, ˆ, ¸ ... A couple of omissions were corrected, and accented letters were included. A render sheet, enclosed with font files, aid to recognize them on keyboard.

It can be used as web-site titles, posters and fliers, modifying ancient texts, menus or greeting cards as a very ornamental font style ...

Although this font style remains clear and easy to read from 8 or 9 points on screen, it is plainly developed for print works.
