Commissioned by Klinkhardt as a typeface that fully embodies the character of the broad-nib pen, and cut by a former pupil of Delitsch. [Release notes] Comes with many alternates (A E G M N P V W a m n s z ß), ligatures (ch ck ff ft Qu qu ſch ſi ſſ ſt tz and more), decorated initial (D M) and terminal (e t) swash forms, dot ornaments, and two sets of initials, see Delitsch-Initialen. Later continued by Berthold. [Seemann] Also cast by Gans as Antigua Manuscrito. [Reichardt]
Digital interpretations include Delitsch Antiqua (Petra Heidorn, 2004) and Gans Antigua Manuscrito (Intellecta Design, 2006). Both are unsatisfactory and incomplete.
