About JAF Herb Condensed
JAF Herb is based on sixteenth-century cursive broken scripts and print­ing types. It features connect­ing letter­forms that are rather tightly spaced. Origin­ally designed by Tim Ahrens in the MA Typeface Design course at the University of Read­ing, it was further refined and exten­ded in 2010. The idea for JAF Herb was to develop a typeface with the prop­er­ties of black­let­ter, without evoking any negat­ive connota­tions. The design retains the complex, humane char­ac­ter of fraktur without appear­ing conser­vat­ive, aggress­ive or intol­er­ant.
