A blackletter font tending towards the gothic which was released by Klingspor, Offenbach am Main, in 1937.
Claudius can be used for clerical as well as for secular purposes and shows a strong character of its own. The original esthetic atrocities of placing the dieresis within the letters A and O - due to former German industry standards - were abolished. Allow the font’s beauty spread by giving it enough leading between the lines. This font contains various useful ligatures, and by activating the Discretionary Ligatures feature and typing ‘N’, ‘r’ and period you get an oldstyle numbersign.
