About this font family

Gudrun Zapf von Hesse designed the first sketches of Alcuin in 1986.

The namesake of this typeface was an advisor of Charlemagne and was responsible for the writing reform of the Carolingian era. Alcuin was born in 735 in England, became an abbot in Tours and died there in 804.

Alcuin with its strong calligraphic expression may be used in books, magazines, and also in the area of printed office communication.
