Herman Decanus


From a 13th century official document written by Dean Hermann of Soest, 1269. This font has extremely high ascenders and descenders, nothing to put much text on a page. Most of the uppercase letters are my invention, aimed to be readable for modern readers. Use it for documents that are meant to look "historical".

There is an additional light weight in the ZIP file for download. The sample on this page shows the normal weight.
