Linotype Richmond™ font family
Designed by Richard Yeend in 2002
In addition to Linotype Richmond Zierschrift's calligraphic feeling, there is also a touch of engraving its forms, which can be seen in the thin lines that work together to build up the strokes of the letters. Because of these intricacies, Linotype Richmond Zierschrift functions best when used in display, or headline, settings, and most effectively when used to accent portions of larger text set in Linotype Richmond Fraktur. Linotype Richmond Fraktur uses the same basic letter shapes as Linotype Richmond Zierschrift, but employs calligraphic strokes to build up the letterforms.
The Linotype Richmond Zierschrift family has three font styles available for purchase: Linotype Richmond Zierschrift Regular is a standard typeface that may be used for any display application. Linotype Richmond Zierschrift DFR contains many alternate characters, such as the long s, which are necessary to properly set historical documents according to their original standards. Linotype Richmond Zierschrift Alternate may be used in conjunction with either of the other two faces; it contains many additional ligatures, as well as alternate first and last letters, allowing for especially calligraphic words, lines, or pages.
The entire Linotype Richmond family, including both the Zierschrift and Fraktur styles, is part of the Take Type 4 collection from Linotype GmbH."
