Bucintoro

By Three Islands Press

Bucintoro is a modern version of the rotunda blackletter, the Gothic book hand of Italy and Spain in the 14th, 15th, and 16th centuries. As the name implies, it’s more “rotund” than the tall, angular German Textur blackletter that Gutenberg imitated. Bucintoro has upper- and lowercase alphabets, numerals, punctuation, diacritics—but lacks such modern characters as currency symbols.
