Hello all,

Does anyone know of any digital version that are close to this?

The sample is from 1879 so a bit worn.  Looking for a clean, solid version.

I can't find anything exact though here are a few suggestions with some close:

1) Headlinetext - Dieter Steffmann

2) Old English - Monotype

3) Old English (different upper case glyphs) - Letraset

4) Manuskript Gotisch - Fritter Donut.

You could do a mix and match from some of the lowercase and uppercase glyphs from a variation of these typefaces, if you have competence with Adobe Illustrator or another vector based drawing package.

Here you'll find a large selection of free downloadable Blackletter style fonts.

DSX Regal Black is the closest I could find (DSX stands for Dan X. Solo, of Solotype).

Scroll down the page for a visual sample, and use the download page link at the end of the description at the top of the page.

Kevin Thompson DSX Regal Black is pretty darn close, shame it's been auto-traced, it's a bit rough in a few places.

Kevin Thompson, Michael Hagemann has done a far better job of creating this, plus there are some really nice alternative glyphs. The lower case "h" isn't exact nor the uppercase "D" but the rest are very, very close. Well spotted Kevin.
