This video shows Seb Lester, a type designer, writing the letters A to M in Blackletter, or Gothic script. This script was used in Western Europe from about 1150 until the 17th century.

“One of my current preoccupations is developing a set of modern BlackLetter capitals that are highly legible, in BlackLetter terms, and yet retain the richness and beauty inherent in this ancient category of letterform,” Lester writes in the video description.
