About this font family
The Vtg Stencil font series by astype is based on real world stencils.
Vtg Stencil Germany No. 101 is modeled after historic stencil plates from Bavaria.
The design is a blackletter chancery, a romantic reprise of a style that was common in German writing offices from the 14th to the 16th century. The flourishes stylistically quote the Baroque period. A talented mind, perhaps around 1890, has transformed the textura shapes into a modular stencil system. Many elements are repeated throughout the glyph set – see for example the initial swashes on the letters A, B, U etc. More…
Overall, this decorative blackletter doesn’t look like a stencil design.
Maybe it was originally used by a sign painter, and all the typical stencil bridges would have been painted over in the final work.
If you’re looking for a decorative blackletter font with a unique touch and a romantic feel, you will love Germany No. 101.
