Title: German Roundhand/Rundschrift
Post by: RD5 on August 14, 2019, 04:58:38 AM
There was some discussion  about the German Roundhand also known as Rundschrift in another thread, but as that was not the main topic of that thread, I thought it would start a new one. I recently found some new information about its use.

Here is a link that contains a font based on Rundschrift as well as an short explanation of it use, complete with an example. The blue picture is a diagram of a sign for the railways, the diagram is labelled in Rundschrift. This apparently was very common use for the script.
