margin:0px; margin-top:10px; margin-bottom:10px;"> Amherst is a family of blackletter-inspired typefaces. This family, created by British designer Richard Yeend in 2002, is unique in that it mains the feel of blackletter/medieval type without relying directly on historical forms. Amherst is split into two different sub-families, Amherst and Amherst Gothic. Amherst is very geometric interpretation of Fraktur. Fraktur was a style of German type very popular in central Europe from 1517 until the early 20th Century. Its letters appear "broken" at certain angles and joints. Because this Fraktur is so geometric, it feels much more at home in the 21st Century than other Frakturs like Linotype's Fette Fraktur. It is also much more legible. Still, we recommend using it primarily for display purposes. Amherst is available in three weights: Regular, Bold, and Heavy. <p>Amherst is a trademark of Linotype GmbH and may be registered in certain jurisdictions.<hr> To buy and download this font choose format (OpenType, PostScript, TrueType ...) and click add-to-cart <span class='nowrap'>(<img alt="" src="/pictures/scart.gif" Width="20" Height="10" Border="0">)</span> icon.
