    1. The blackletter for “Lil Debbie” is one of the many digitizations of Fancy Text.

      Fancy Text and Fancy Text Shaded as shown in the 1878 MS&J catalog (1885 reissue).

      Fancy Text (as in textura, not as in “suitable for body text”) and the open Fancy Text Shaded were designed by Richard Smith and first cast by MacKellar, Smiths & Jordan in 1870.

      This is probably Dieter Steffmann’s version named Fancy Card Text – which is distinguished by the omitted decorative arrows in the caps – with a chrome effect applied.

    2. Thank you so much for finding the font on this post!
