Melusine is based on an ornate style of gothic calligraphy used primarily in decorative signs and advertising in Germany around the turn of the century. It has many of the characteristics of a true medieval gothic hand, but is a more elaborate, extreme variaton on the style. It is one of the fonts featured in our Gothic Fonts package. Melusine was first released ten years ago this month, so it was due for an update. This new release has an expanded character set and several improved and tweaked characters. It was quite popular when we first released it and it deserves a second look.
