A minimalist fraktur, broken down to the bare minimum of penstrokes. Based on the later more rounded typefaces with fewer distinct pen movements. Made for practicing calligraphy rather than æsthetics, especially w.r.t. lowercase letters. This schematic breakdown makes for easier learning of stroke-order and movements.
It is finally done! It took me around 3 full days of design work and polishing.
The major character design part is about done, and I probably will only add some additional extra ligatures and special characters.
The design approach is a large grid Faux Bezier style to get the most out of custom shaping Top/bottom grid scale is a total of 71 bricks with ascenders and descenders included.
I have done a whole lot of finalizing background work already, and many pairs have been kerned already, but not everything was done yet, this is going to be completed within the next few days.
- Littera Textualis Emergo -
A formal Gothic minuscule that was inspired by Latin bookhand script, better known as 'Textualis'. This script was popular between the 12th & 16th century. Basically Those that would have been used for the main text of Latin books.
A more detailed description is has been written down in a sample image posted in the comment section bellow.
I hope y'all like it as much as I do.

A modernized geometric monoline gothic script design in progress.
Its a all caps design but with a double sized uppercase.
The style of design metrics made it tough to allign the punctuations so that they all fit both upper & lowercase strings, but I did it the best I could.
No numerals done yet, I might do them soon.
I hope you like it so farThis is a clone
Another textualis style calligraphic blackletter / gothic script typeface.
Besides the Basic Latin character set this has a lot of special use characters and alternatives too, such as:
Ligatures, Superscript, lining (default) & oldstyled numeral forms (located in halfwidth), traditional medieval punctuation marks (located in private use). And there is even a complete, but slightly modified & smaller version of the alphabet located in the Halfwidth unicode block as well.
I hope you like it! :)
It took me so long damn it

My best web hosting solution:
Folder strips of paper style blackletter attempt. I wish I had better solutions for some charaters, but I had some tough struggles getting good looking glyphs for this style, for example uppercase T took me like 60 attemps and none ever really pleased. So I ended up with choosing the best of them en just went on with the rest. BUT, Zephram came to the rescue and delivered me a propper T, Arrrrr thanks matey!!!

Textura Reticulata, my first font. I began with the intent of replicating my own textura quadrata calligraphic hand, but decided against approximating the heavily-rounded majuscules with small line segments and ended up mostly inventing a majuscule set. I feel like the minuscules are a good approximation. The Ogham set are, of course, what you would expect to get if transcribing them with a roundhand nib. And I made use of various unused unicode slots to add some non-canonical Ogham characters for one of my own projects.
Moderne black letter font specifically made for the game Unburied with fixed width numerals
This is my first blackletter font. I don't know much about blackletter if this is not so "gothic" please tell me.
Idk why but you know what i'll make russian
A remastered version of Amanuensis by Riccard0.

EXPERIMENTAL BLACKLETTER THING or EBT (codename "Chimera Spine") first came into AMFA custody on July 23, 2018. As of this time it is still considered to be non-dangerous. Study of EBT has proven that there is a relationship between its venomous barbs and English letter frequencies, with more common letters being especially likely to have these barbs. The venom itself, while not lethal to any known form of biological tissue, has [REDACTED] effects on the human psyche.
A hexagon shape, a forced perspective effect, and a typeface all had their DNA extracted and recombined by evil scientists at Salk Institute. "Chimera Scales" is a hexagonal blackletter and the culmination of 8 years of genomic research. It has the ability to look like itself no matter what environment it's in. ALSO IT EATS HUMAN SOULS.
The "TB" stands for "tuberculosis", which is probably what this font has. Still, it was fun to try to create authentic blackletter on such a small grid!

I attempted a blackletter style without any knowledge or references. The result reminds me of a vampire's writing!
The name "Dethzmezenger / Death's Messenger" comes from one of many old joke bands which I created.
