Hi all, i was wondering if any of you might be able to help me out. I've been looking everywhere for fonts that contain a medial letter S, though havent been able to find any. I've found the unicode (107F, alt+x) for it though it's only available in the most basic of fonts and even if i do use it with the older-style fonts i have, the difference is somewhat jarring.

do any of you have or know of any free fonts that contain such a letter?

thanks

Try the following fonts (all free gothic-like fonts with medial S letter): Strassburg Fraktur, Dufay, Berthlodr Mainzer Fraktur, Skjend Hans Gotisk, Schwaben alt, Deutschische, Meyne Textur, WW2 Blackletter.

thanks for that, i save most of those, but theyre not quite what i was looking for. theyre a bit too gothic/stylised. I was looking more for something more 'normal' for large blocks of text.

Hah I had this one. Didn't pick it up cause it's rather a 17th century like font :P Thought you were looking for an older one. But well, that's cool you found something that almost fits your project :)

true, its not what i'd call a medieval one, though its 'old'
