What is Old German Script?
Kurrent, commonly known as Old German Script, orginated from a gothic cursive in the early 16th Century. Because of its widespread use in the Middle Ages, it developed into various styles. Later, due to the acceptance of a standard cursive form by many European chancellories, the handwriting came into general use. The handwritten script employed in the early part of the twentieth century is known as Suetterlinschrift and was regularly used in correspondences, documents, church registers, government records and personal papers. In the second half of the twentieth century, it was replaced by the Roman script in both Germany and the United States. Kurrent or Sütterlin scripts are rarely taught or employed today, and few people are able to read them.
Fraktur is a blackletter derivative of the Roman Alphabet and was in general use as a standard typeface in printed materials in northern Europe and in the United States until the early twentieth century. It is sometimes referred to as Gothic and was often presented in a calligraphic hand on official and decorative materials. In the United States, the term Fraktur is applied to any official certificate or family document decorated in the Fraktur lettering.
