Jobst Gutknecht was a highly successful printer in the city of Nuremburg from 1514 to 1542. He published the “Achtliederbuch” (the first Lutheran hymnal, with a whole 4 tunes) and many works by Martin Luther. This font is an accurate “recutting” of the font face Gutknecht used for the body text in his printed works. It has been extended to over 900 glyphs adding hundreds for modern use. It also presents many ancient things like old ligatures such as “tz”, a hedera, and alternate style pilcrow for visual interest. And for those conservative types the modern lower case “k” is also available.
