Johann Neudrffer the Elders 1538 writing manual fascinated the German designer Helmut Boom for years. Together with Albrecht Drer and Hieronymus Andre, Neudrffer helped create Fraktur, perhaps the most Germanic of all the blackletter styles. As a tribute to this master, and bring its letterforms to a 21st century public, Boom released the Neudoerffer Fraktur family through Linotype in 2009. Boom had already begun using letters from this typeface as early as the 1990s, in design projects like historic sign restoration and heraldry commissions. The sources that he used while drawing the typeface were images from Jan Tschicholds Treasures of Calligraphy and Albert Kaprs Schriftkunst. Neudoerffer Frakturs appearance is based very much in handwriting. The family has three separate fonts; each has a slightly different style of flourish, and all three may be combined with each other: Neudoerffer Fraktur One is optimal for longer texts; Neudoerffer Fraktur Two contains alternate letters, and well as more ornamented capitals; Neudoerffer Fraktur Threes letters have a strong calligraphic accent.
