Background

This sticky blackletter font owes its street credibility to the texture of torn adhesive tape. Designed to support rehabilitation of the historically tainted Fraktur, its pragmatically shaped majuscules guarantee legibility to a 21st-century readership. They even forgive all-caps usage – a thing you better not try with most blackletter types around.

It contains a range of diacritics and ligatures, as well as open type features that substitute alternate glyphs for often repeating characters.

With its fine tape strip details you may best use it at poster and headline sizes; at small sizes you interestingly get a nice woodcut appearance.

Connoisseurs use it with style, while true blackmetal grimlords curse it for its fashionability!
