Fraktur is a category of Latin type that once enjoyed widespread use, especially in Germany where it was in effect the national script. Sadly, Fraktur has since degenerated into mere decorative use, in spite of a startling advantage: it is inherently more readable than our conventional Roman script. This advantage stems from 2 things: Fraktur exhibits angular strokes that conserve horizontal space, increasing the number of words we can grasp through our field of vision; more significantly, Frakturs letterform structures are very divergent, making a given words shape (or “bouma”) more distinctive, thus conveying more information to our brains reading system.
