Dieter Steffmann's Homepage
FontShop was the name of Dieter Steffmann's foundry in Kreuztal, Germany (not to be confused with the FontShop foundry and font vendor). He made about 600 self-proclaimed "old-fashioned" fonts, and among these many Fraktur fonts. His site became too expensive to run, and is now hosted by Typoasis. Alternate URL. Current list of fonts. See also here. New stuff. Fontspace link. A nice essay about Fraktur fonts accompanies the fonts. News. As Dieter puts it: I am not a designer but I add missing letters to public domain fonts in order to get a complete character set and I hint the fonts and create new weigths (shadow, inline etc.) His Christbaumkugeln font, and how it was made. The font families:
Possibly the greatest dingbat archive (about 1200 fonts). Previews. Authors clearly identified. Categories: Aliens, Animals, Artists, Arrows, Borders, Buildings, Business, Buttons, Children, Clowns, Crowns, Culinary, Cultural, Designs, Dividers, Electricity, Everyday, Faces, Figures, Floral, Gems, Hands, Hearts, Hodge Podge, Holidays, Listemageren, Maps, Medical, Money, Monsters, Music, Mystical, Old Things, Round Things, School Stuff, Seasons, Sports, Transport, TV, Women (erotic).

The fonts were digitized, spaced, kerned and programmed by Hannes von Döhren).

About that last dingbat font, she writes: ...This font was made from photographs and drawings of the rock art in South Africa....The Bushmen (San) were the most prolific painters....A lot of the male figures are shown with a semi-erection, as can be seen in q, e, r, and p. This is a physical trait peculiar to the San, called "penis rectus". This characteristic helped with cooling and heat dissipation in the very hot summers experienced in South Africa. A recurrent image is that of one or more crossbars across the penis. The meaning of this is unclear, but it is theorised that the foreskin was adorned with ornaments like pieces of bone and feathers.
