"Union County Fraktur"

Union County Fraktur

Saturday, October 28, 1:30 p.m.

at the Public Library for Union County, 255 Reitz Blvd., Lewisburg, PA

Rich Nornhold will present a program on Fraktur – artistic and elaborate illuminated folk art found on early documents such as Taufscheine (birth and baptismal certificates), marriage and house blessings.

Common illustrative motifs were birds, tulips, and hearts, done in watercolor and ink. Fraktur art was developed by Pennsylvania Germans. The text on frakturs may be written in German, in old German script.

The program is free and open to the public. Please call the library (570-523-1172) to reserve your place.
