Dutch Mediaeval

Number of fonts

This is the elaborately expanded version of what is arguably the most classic and popular of all historic Dutch faces: S. H. de Roos's Hollandse Mediaeval from 1912. Many pressmen and typography connoisseurs have gushed loving prose about this typeface for over a century now.

An extended family of two weights, corresponding italics, small caps, four condensed fonts, four book fonts, a set of initials and some very Dutch ornaments, Dutch Mediaeval is a versatile workhorse that flows comfortably and artistically, with the elegance of the main weights nicely complemented by the sturdiness of the bolds. Very few text faces are this clean and inviting while being crafty.

The Dutch Mediaeval family comes with many OpenType features and extended Latin language support.
