The Vtg Stencil font series by astype is based on real world stencils.
Vtg Stencil Germany No. 101 is modeled after historic stencil plates from Bavaria.
The design is a blackletter chancery, a romantic reprise of a style that was common in German writing offices from the 14th to the 16th century. The flourishes stylistically quote the Baroque period. A talented mind, perhaps around 1890, has transformed the textura shapes into a modular stencil system. Many elements are repeated throughout the glyph set – see for example the initial swashes on the letters A, B, U etc.
Overall, this decorative blackletter doesn’t look like a stencil design.
Maybe it was originally used by a sign painter, and all the typical stencil bridges would have been painted over in the final work.
If you’re looking for a decorative blackletter font with a unique touch and a romantic feel, you will love Germany No. 101.
