This is the elaborately expanded version of what is arguably the most classic and popular of all historic Dutch faces: Sjoerd Hendrik de Roos’s Hollandse Mediaeval from 1912. Over the decades, many pressmen and typography connoisseurs have gushed loving prose about this typeface.
An extended family of two weights, corresponding italics, small caps, four condensed fonts, two book weights, a set of initials and some very Dutch ornaments, Dutch Mediaeval is a versatile workhorse that flows comfortably and artistically, with the elegance of the main weights nicely complemented by the sturdiness of the bolds. Very few text faces are this clean and inviting while being crafty as well.
The Dutch Mediaeval family comes with extended language support, surpassing the Western Latin codepages to included characters for Central and Eastern European languages, as well as Baltic, Irish, Maltese, Turkish and Esperanto.
