About this font family
Michael Wenssler or Michael Wennsler, operated a press at Basel betweeen 1472 and 1490. He apparently
suffered financially to the point that he fled his creditors and came to France where he managed to print a further 10 works to bring to a total an estimated 150 books. This font face dates to 1482 and is a wonderfully well rounded and uniquely decorative example of the early blackletter style.
