Most blackletter signs and inscriptions in the streets of St. Gallen are not derived from typefaces, but are custom lettering work. “Gallery The Ostrich” is one of the few exceptions — it uses Alte Schwabacher. This is one the most popular digital blackletter fonts, along with Fette Fraktur, Fette Gotisch, Wilhelm Klingspor Gotisch, Old English and Engravers’ Old English.
