designing some letters for the hebrew blackletter was the ultimate fun in this project. i started by viewing some english blackletter fonts and then started doing some calligraphy, in order to understand the nature of these letters. using the lessons i got from the calligraphy, i managed to build some descent hebrew letters.


in order to create the letters, i was inspired (and used) a font called "Wilhelm Klingspor Gotisch". unfortunately, due to the lack of time, i was unable to do the entire alphabet, just the letters i needed.

for the running text, i used various wheights of a hebrew font called "Ada". it's serifs we suitable for the theme, while maintaining it's own hebrew qualities.
