    Albrecht, a geometric interpretation of blackletter techniques, constructed with a strict set of components and constraints.
    Published:
Albrecht stems from traditional black letter calligraphic techniques. While holding true to the rigid and sharp nature of the gothic script, the letters are structured on a grid system built up out of a small set of elements, creating a consistent texture throughout. Albrecht Durer's had a similar modular approach of the gothic alphabet in his 1522 Underweysung der Messung mit dem Zirckel und Richtscheyt. Exceptions had to be made for certain letters such as S and Z, not fitting perfectly within the grid, but this was necessary to create legible characters.
