What is the Andreae™ font?
Hieronymus Andreae or latter in life Hieronymus Formenschneider as he proudly took a new surname to proclaim his success in the printing industry as the man who introduced the Fraktur script to the world of print. This project was undertaken at the orders of Emperor Maximilian I. One of Fraktur’s first appearances was in a joint venture with the great Albrecht Dürer. This font was based on a later work, Andreae’s magnus opus in the music field, the Coralis Constantini by Henry Isaac. Andreae worked as woodblock cutter and then became a publisher in the city of Nuremberg until his death in 1565.
We at PLTF are proud to revive this enormously influential typeface.

You're probably thinking - Is Andreae™ available to Download for free?
The short answer is no. Andreae™ is definitely not available as a free download font. This is a premium font which mean that you will have to pay to download and use it in your project. We showcase fonts on SharedFonts that are almost all premium fonts. Feel free to waste valuable hours of your time searching for a free download of Andreae™, but take it from me, you will not be successful in your quest. Just think how much time and effort you will save if you just pay for Andreae™ and be done with it.
It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Andreae™ is that you get the license to use it leagally.

Also it is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Andreae™ for free. Doing various searches on Google such as "Free Andreae™ Download" you will see a lot of websites that will say "Free Download" but these are just attempts to get you to click on a link which will either take you to an ad landing page or you risk getting viruses on your computer. In the rare occasion that you do find a free download for Andreae™ remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
