New Old English was released by K-Type. New Old English contains 1 design. p > New Old English was prompted by 2 Victorian coins, the mid nineteenth century gothic crown and gothic florin, which featured a gothic script lowercase with quite contemporary looking, short ascenders and descenders enabling it to fit snugly around the queen's head or heraldic theme. With thicker hairline strokes than regular Old English, a less sharp, warmer feel than lettering scripted with a pen, and circular rather of rhombic punctuation, this font style is an attempt to capture the round-cornered softness of the die-struck lowercase blackletter.

To increase harmony and homogeneity between the cases, the uppercase is narrower and easier than is popular, without the excessive width or old-fashioned flamboyance of the traditional blackletter. It may even permit text set in capitals to look appropriate.
