The second /u in Buchhandlung is an upside-down /n, and the second /n is an upside-down /u.
I find ITC Souvenir to be appropriate here on many levels. In addition to Souvenir’s being almost as old as the Deutsche Schrift, it was probably inspired by Schelter-Antiqua. Also, any book store near an Schloss in an old town center in quite likely to sell at least a few souvenirs on its shelves.
The final 'un’ letters are swapped and rotated.
Well spotted, Dan & Aaron!
I agree that ITC Souvenir feels very much at home here. It is the change to Deutsche Schrift that looks comical to me — as if the first word is to be pronounced with a deep voice intensified by a spooky hall effect.
