Distant Cousins … All Of A Sudden Looking Like Twins
Member Son… posted a topic in TalkI'd like to show you two commercial fonts, more precisely: a German foundry's demo versions of these fonts, and to be really exact: These are (or should be) two quite different Central European elementary school handwriting programs. #1 and #2 are basically the same: Austria's longhand «Schulschrift 1995», slanted version. — According to the files' stats, this particular font was published in 2005. Font #3 is called «SAS», that would be «Schulausgangsschrift 1968», obligatory (or preferred) elementary school handwriting program in all East German states including the Federal Capital Berlin, and also common in some West German states, including Bavaria. — According to the file's stats, this particular font was published in 2012. Re #1 and #2, Austria's longhand 1995, «Schulschrift 1995», slanted version, cf. the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education's authoritative version: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:1995_Schulschrift_2._Schraegschrift.jpg Re #3, Schulausgangsschrift 1968, «SAS», cf. Dr. Renate Tost's authentic version: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datei:Schulausgangsschrift_1968.png Hm, and now back to the commercial fonts — is it my imagination, or is something wrong there?
