Lucida Blackletter font family

Overview

Lucida Blackletter

Characteristics: A modern interpretation of a cursive blackletter style used for printing in the 15th and 16th centuries. Uses: Use for signs, posters, menus, or any time you want a font with an antique look. Guidelines Use enough line spacing so that ascenders and descenders do not collide. Use all capital combinations sparingly; capitals were intended to be combined with lowercase only. Tightly fitted by design, so do not tighten letter spacing at text sizes. Spacing can be tightened at large display sizes. Combines well with other Lucida fonts.
