Gothic (Ulfian script)


So the style isn't quite like Times. But...Gothic died out in the early 1700s, was it ever printed? What examples do we have of it, besides the hand-printed bibles?

This is a general question about writing systems that have no printing history. Should one force a style on them to make them like a Latin style? That would be artificial, at least. Maybe it's better to go from a good handrwiting sample (of similar weight and adonment).

Here is some Gothic:
