Albrecht FrakturDesigner: David Kettlewell
Publisher: New Renaissance Fonts
Albrecht Fraktur was designed by David Kettlewell and published by New Renaissance Fonts. Albrecht Fraktur contains 1 style. p > In his 1538 book on measurement, Albrecht Dürer offered clear descriptions and illustrations about the percentages of the letters in both Roman and 'fraktur' alphabets (from Latin 'fractura', implying that it's broken up with great deals of various angles instead of smooth curves). Here is the fraktur alphabet as a font completed for usage today, with a couple of characters modernised and some spaces filled.

Of course there are many examples of fraktur fonts currently distributing, and certainly one foundry even has another version of this specific one; but we have different approaches to some of the concerns raised, we have targeted at a more even tracking (horizontal spacing), and the 260 glyphs in our variation consist of accents and other diacritics, and the modern signs which Dürer would definitely have embraced if he had actually had access to the web.
