Neuland is a German typeface that was designed in 1923 by Rudolf Koch. Because he designed it by directly carving it into metal, the original had a great deal of variety between sizes. I personally love this script because of how expressive it is and how easy it is to play around with it and the different forms of supplies you can use. I drew inspiration from the Neuland typeface and a few exemplars that I have studied from and created a fun way to learn Broad Edge Neuland using parallel pens.
