What Is a Blackletter Font?
Blackletter, also known as Gothic script or Old English script, is a calligraphic style which was popular for writing manuscripts and books in German-speaking countries during the Middle Ages. During the 20th century, blackletter type styles were adopted by new audiences and came to be associated with punk, street art, and heavy metal.
It’s this blend of medieval influence and modern rebellion that makes blackletter and Gothic styles always look moody, cool, and dramatic. They’re great for adding edge and interest to posters, T-shirt designs, and logos.
