Le Rosart Textura is based on the blackletter types cut by 18th century Belgian punchcutter and typefounder Jacques-François Rosart. The contemporary interpretation is informed by extensive research into period sources. 
In a similar fashion to his romans, Rosart’s blackletter types are characterized by a vertical contrast axis and sharp silhouettes, with relatively wide capitals and spruce details. Details like the ‘s’ that flexes its ball terminals and especially the decorative “feelers” on the extenders of ‘b’ or ‘p’ reveal its origin in the baroque period.

Research of Rosart’s blackletter proved to be difficult, as only few printed examples have survived. In order to fill the gaps, the blackletter types cut by Rosart’s contemporary Fleischmann were used as a secondary reference. Le Rosart Textura was produced in two styles. Named A and B, they are distinguished by the amount of contrast. The one with finer hairlines is suited for larger applications, and the darker version for smaller sizes. With more than 550 glyphs per style, the fonts support most Latin-based European languages.
