Note of the author
A classic Germanic blackletter hand. NOTE: this is not the Nazi-era Suetterlin. Blackletter hand is slanted and written with a pen; Suetterlin, a subtype of blackletter hand, is always written precisely vertically, and either with a biro (ballpoint "pen") or with a pen mimicking a biro. Blackletter hand is much older than Suetterlin---this is German imperial era. Roman-style hand was used as italics are used today, that is, in lieu of quote marks. The "round" or terminal lowercase "s" is on the # key. Long "s" is used otherwise.
