Kafka's Writing Font Available on Special
Fontshop are offering a special to celebrate 20 years. They are offering 20% off a selection of twenty fonts for twenty days. One of them is inspired by the manuscripts of Franz Kafka. Kafka’s manuscripts reveal a unique style with strong calligraphic features.
The Designer say's this:
"Probably the most impressive writer’s manuscripts I have seen are those of Franz Kafka, who was and is one of my favorite writers. Kafka had a very rich handwriting style with partly pronounced calligraphic features. The rhythm and mood of the script change strongly from slow and relaxed with wide characters, to fast, tense, very tight and almost unreadable. Besides that, there are all kinds of editing/correction marks reflecting the state of affairs of the writer. Another interesting aspect is that during the course of his lifetime, Kafka used not only Latin script but also (for most contemporary readers almost undecipherable) German script popular in Austro-Hungary at the turn of the 19th/20th centuries."
