Jugendstil Kunsthand is based on a sample of late 19th century lettering in a style often associated with artists of the Jugendstil Art Nouveau movement in Germany. The characters are done in heavy outline with a rough-hand drawn look. The style is interesting because it shows the influence of the Arts and Crafts movement on Art Nouveau with many of the characters featuring alternate versions that nest together in a manner typical of Arts & Crafts lettering.
The new release of Jugendstil Kunsthand includes both the original outline version drawn directly from lettering in Munchner Jugend plus a second version with solid characters which may be more practical for some uses. This new version has been added to the updated release of our Jugendstil Fonts and Art package.
