Note on availability of gothic scripts
With the exception of Deberny and Peignot's La Civilité no
gothic scripts appear to be available for use today .The American
Type Founders Civilité, based on a French sixteenth century face, has
many Latinized letters both in the upper- and the lower-case. Some
letters in Bauer's Legend may be said to be based on gothic scripts
like the sixteenth century civilité's.
A number of fine gothic scripts are held by the Enschedé foundry
but are not available for general use : Berry, Johnson andjaspert show
a fine example in the 1958 edition of their Encyclopaedia of Type Faces,
under Private Press types.
