UnifrakturMaguntia is determined by Peter Wiegel’s font Berthold Mainzer Fraktur which can be in turn depending on a 1901 typeface by Carl Albert Fahrenwaldt. Although the glyph design of Peter Wiegel’s font has hardly been changed at all, UnifrakturMaguntia makes use of sensible font technologies for displaying the font’s ligatures (OpenType, Apple Advanced Typography and SIL Graphite). An experimental function would be the distinction of fantastic blackletter typography among necessary ligatures ‹ch, ck, ?t, tz› that have to be kept when letterspacing is enhanced, and standard ligatures (for instance, ‹fi, fl›) which are broken up when letterspacing is increased.
UnifrakturMaguntia is optimized for @font-face linking on the world-wide-web by combining standards compliance using a permissive license.
UnifrakturMaguntia has first been published in 2010 at UnifrakturMaguntia. It has been edited with FontForge, the libre outline font editor. OpenType options have already been added with FontForge directly. AAT functions happen to be added with ftxenhancer from the Apple Font Tools. Graphite has been added using the Graphite Compiler. For more information regarding AAT and Graphite, you might choose to check out the No cost Tengwar Font Project: Adding Graphite and AAT to a font.
