Herman Decanus Font Preview

Herman Decanus was inspired by a 13th century official document written by Dean Hermann of Soest, 1269. This font has extremely high ascenders and descenders, nothing to put much text on a page. Most of the uppercase letters are my invention, aimed to be readable for modern readers. Use it for documents that are meant to look "historical".

This typeface comes in two weights: regular and light.

Northern German "Kanzleischrift" of the 13th c., fashioned after the handwriting of Decanus (regional church official) Hermanus of Soest, this font has many alternative characters in odd places. Most of the uppercase and some lowercase characters have been made up for lack of samples and to ensure readability for modern users. Good for something that should look like an old document.
