Jessen Schrift was from the hand of Rudolph Koch in 1930, and named for Peter Jessen, who was a major figure in 19th century German book arts. It has a handcrafted appearance and incorporates a mix of roman capitals and blackletter lowercase with selected stylized alternate caps. Koch intended it primarily for use in Bible printing.
