German-language hand-writing script known as Kurrent was used between the 15th and the 20th century (up until the end of WWII) in mostly German speaking countries. Kurrent is known as the written equivalent of the blackletter typeface.
Sütterlin, old German handwriting script, a variant of Kurrent. Abolished in 41 along with (Fraktur) as being "too Jewish". Apparently Hitler had a poor grasp on the history of typography, among other flaws.
I’ve been working on some experimental Kurrentschrift lettering for a branding concept. Kurrent is an old form of German handwriting, which often made its way into signage and other vernacular forms of typography.
