"Breitkopf Fraktur was designed by JohannGottlob Immanuel Breitkopf (1719-1794), the well-known type designer and printerof Leipzig. Breitkopf's high reputation isbased on a system of musical notes printing developed by him. 1793, in the finalstage of his life, he designed this beautiful broken script named after himself. Breitkopf Fraktur is classified as ""broken"", something created by the German renaissance. Broken because all round parts of the lower case characters in such typefaces look broken. Ralph M. Unger redrew and digitized this font exclusively for profonts in 2003. His work is based on artwork taken from old font catalogues."
