Dutch Mediaeval is a text family based on Hollandse Mediaeval, the 1912 Sjoerd Hendrik deRoos classic, arguably the most popular Dutch text face of the 20th century. Over the years, many typographers and pressmen have gushed loving words about this typeface in metal, and now it comes to digital life in wonderful and expert style.
An extended family of two weights, corresponding italics, and small caps across the board, Dutch Mediaeval is a veritable workhorse that flows comfortably, with the elegance and sensibility of the main weights nicely complemented by the sturdiness of the bolds. Very few text faces are this clean and inviting. This is effectively demonstrated in the 5-page, 4-language Print Test PDF available here in the font gallery.
Dutch Mediaeval comes in all popular formats, the Pro version being the most powerful, since it’s loaded with OT features (small caps, some stylistic alternates, a complete range of traditional f ligatures, and 3 different sets of figures — lining proportional, lining tabular and oldstyle) that are very useful in programs that support such typographic finesses.
This family also boasts extended language support, surpassing the usual Western Latin codepages to include characters for Central and Eastern European languages, as well as Baltic, Celtic/Welsh, Esperanto, Maltese, and Turkish.
Dutch Mediaeval is available for purchase as single fonts, or as a complete family. But either way you go, you get the Dutch Mediaeval Ornaments at no charge, since we included it as a bonus inside all available packages.
