After inventing a new metal typecasting procedure that allowed for the production of more detailed typefaces, the famous German typefoundry D. Stempel AG developed Kuenstler Script in 1902 - 1903. Originally called Künstlerschreibschrift (artistic handwriting), this design was based on English copperplate script styles from the late 1800s.In 1957, Hans Bohn added the heavy Kuenstler Script Black weight to the family.Like intricate handwriting put to paper with a feather and an inkwell, Kuenstler Script makes almost any text look distinguished and elegant. Kuenstler Script is a joining script; and because of its fine hairlines and small x-height, it is best used at sizes above 12 pt. The typeface works well in advertising work and on invitations, greetings cards, business cards, and certificates.
Kuenstler Script supports 131 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, Russian, German and French in Latin and Cyrillic scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
