Steinschaber is a single weight, display typeface based on the blackletter Rotunda style used by the first printer of Geneva. Through its quirky letter forms, pronounced contrast and diagonal axis, it offer a unique style that could be used as a historical artefact or integrated into a more contemporary composition. Through the Opentype features, a secondary, Titling set of capitals letters allows further explorations for setting content. Steinschaber includes a full latin character set, a series of typographic fleurons and a range of numerals to choose from. 

This typeface and the secondary family, Schaberstein, are part of the Forgotten Printer collection that aims to celebrate the work and life of Adam Steinschaber who introduced printing to the city.
