Glossary of Printing Terms:
Blackletter

Blackletter is a style of typeface based on early written forms that features elaborate thick to thin strokes and serifs. The Gutenberg Bible, the first book ever printed with movable type, was set in a Blackletter typeface to mimic the manuscript writing of the time. Blackletter type is most often seen on diplomas, certificates, formal invitations, and in the nameplates of some newsletters and newspapers.
