Blackletter Fonts

Rising Sun Font

Their printing concern, the Soleil d’or in Paris, was one of the printing business to engage in the use of blackletter printing, when the rest of the Parisian printers where using humanist influenced Roman typefaces. This peculiar backwards trend was really one of the original examples of “retro”, taking advantage of the desires of the more conservative northern Europe that had not yet embraced the newer Roman types. Rising sun has over 900 defined glyphs.
