About Schreibweise Font Family

Schreibweise is a pirate-flavored font inspired by a hand-lettered manuscript dating from 1492. The digital font features numerous traditional blackletter and discretionary ligatures and contextual alternates to help create the feel of genuine hand lettering, and features archaic glyphs including the long s and rotunda r for vintage typography. The font also includes a complete set of small caps.

About E-phemera

E-phemera fonts are meant to revive type from years gone by in a way which captures the feeling of pre-digital printing technology. Most of the fonts in the collection were first developed for private use in designing vintage prop documents for movies and television shows. E-phemera fonts are inspired by old printed and hand-lettered material, and are usually designed a little rough and a little irregular, in deliberate defiance of the crisp perfection and merciless uniformity of modern digital fonts. Multiple letterforms and ligatures are provided, when possible and practical. We here at E-phemera fonts love computers and wouldn't do without them, but we also wish to remember and celebrate the days when every letter was an individual piece of metal or wood, and not just a collection of BCP data. Print is dead. Long live print!
