Rockner™ font family

Designed by Julius de Goede in 2003
Rockner is a family of fraktur typefaces designed by the calligrapher/designer Julius de Goede. Like all Blackletter styles, fraktur evolved out of Northern Europe's medieval manuscript tradition. Fraktur was the most used Blackletter variety between the sixteenth and twentieth centuries. Unlike many similar fraktur font families, Rockner is available in three weights: Regular, Medium, and Bold. This flexibility allows for richer design possibilities.

Each of Rockner's weights also has an accompanying DFR font available. These fonts contain the many alternate characters, such as the long s and historical ligatures, which are often necessary for the setting of historical documents.
