Jobst Gutknecht was a highly successful printer in the city of Nuremburg from 1514 to 1542. He published the "Achtliederbuch" (the first Lutheran hymnal, with a whole 4 tunes) and many works by Martin Luther. This font is an accurate "recutting" of the font face Gutknecht used for the body text in his printed works. It has been extended to over 900 glyphs adding many for modern use. And it also presents many ancient things like: various ligatures ꜩ,ff,﬉,﬊, 4 hedera ☙, tironian et sign Ꝛ, -rum Ꝝ, swirly pilcrow ❡ and many other historical oddities.
