In his graduation project at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Georg Seifert tried to answer the question how Fraktur typefaces would have looked like today, if they hadn’t fallen out of fashion. The result is a “sans-serif” monolinear blackletter, Rostrot, and its “seriffed” sister style with some contrast, RosenRot. Former is drawn in two flavors, “Static” and “Dynamic”. 7 styles of this type series are included on a CD that comes with the second edition of Fraktur Mon Amour (2008).
