Lindberg

a typeface by Feòrag NicBhrìde

Lindberg is based on a font used for the recipe names in an early 20th century Latvian vegetarian cookbook. This type lies somewhere in-between blackletter and Art Nouveau styles; the recipes themselves are set in a classic blackletter typeface. The book appears to be a translation from Danish, and Lindberg is the name of the author.

This typeface has over 600 glyphs. As well as all those required to write European languages which use Latin script, Greek and Cyrillic characters are included. If you do not have the appropriate keyboard driver installed, they can be found using the Glyphs/Special Characters menu item in most MacOS X applications.

The image below gives a sample of some of the characters included in the font:

The typeface comes in two 'flavours'. The OTF version is PostScript-flavoured OpenType; the TTF is TrueType-flavoured OpenType. Both should work on MacOS X, Linux and Windows systems. If you use MacOS 8 or 9, only the OTF version will work on these systems. If you have a PostScript printer, you should also choose the OTF version.
