Historical Scripts - Gothic

The styles such as Carolingian and Foundational became more compressed over time and resulted in these solid, compressed, angular letters with elaborate contrasting capitals in the 13th Century.

Gothic is very difficult to read and tends to be used only for its decorative properties. It is not really suitable for informal texts or occasions.
