What is the Gertrud™ font?

First place in a spelling-bee competition, a Harvard University diploma or the Nobel Peace Prize?
You can’t go wrong with this classic Swedish calligraphy font, created by veteran designer Bo Berndal.
He named Gertrud after his better half, but was also inspired by old handwritten documents: “Gertrud is a calligraphic letter design from the 16th century. I used it when I engrossed diplomas with a flat-nibbed pen in the 1980’s. When I got my Mac I generated the typeface in Fontographer.” More…
Gertrud (the typeface) comes in three weights, with roman and italic. It is an OpenType creation, for both PC and Mac.
Swedish type foundry T4 premieres new fonts every month. Gertrud is our sixth introduction.
