The only currently available digital version of Schneidler’s Legende (Bauersche Gießerei, 1937) is the one by Ralph M. Unger. Unfortunately, it lacks many of the glyphs that were included in the original version (Luc Devroye has a scan of the character set). For example, it doesn’t feature the ‘D’, ‘F’, ‘G’, ‘H’, ‘R’ and ‘S’ which are visible in this use. Considering the capabilities of OpenType, this is inexcusable. Releases like this give revivals a bad name.
Why did you add Koch Antiqua?
