Frauen is our ode to German calligraphy. The script style is based on some lettering I found on the cover of an almanac of Berlin debutantes published in 1945 titled, Die shönsten Frauen der Welt (The Most Beautiful Women in the World).

The 1945 almanac of Berlin debutantes that inspired Frauen, ‘Die schönsten Frauen der Welt’

The Roman is partially based on the calligraphy of Friedrich Neugebauer, and partly my own creation. Frauen Roman and Script share a common weight, x-height, and nib angle, and when used together behave as if the same unabashedly German calligrapher penned them both in the same sitting. As such, the uppercase and lowercase of each style can be used interchangeably with one-another.
