Fraktur/blackletter

Fraktur is calligraphic hand writing of the Latin alphabet and any of several blackletter type faces derived from this hand. The blackletter line are broken up, that is, their forms contain many angles when compared to smooth curves of the Antiqua typefaces modeled after antique Roman square capitals and Carolingian minuscule. From this, Fraktur is sometimes contrasted with the Latin alphabet in northern European texts.
