DTL Fleischmann

DTL Fleischmann is a revival of the eccentric Baroque typefaces cut by Johann Michael Fleischmann in the 18th century. The digital DTL Fleischman was created by Erhard Kaiser, a German designer for the Dutch Type Library. The robust typeface consists of text and display cuts making the font incredibly flexible for editorial design. The font features attention-getting ornate serifs and a large selection of ligatures that gives it’s characteristic form. In 2007 I selected Fleischmann to use exclusively in the redesign of American Craft magazine. Two years later I still enjoy working with Fleischmann as much I did in the first issues. It’s beautifully crafted and it can handle all of the typographical detailing that the magazine needs. What else can one ask for?
