Kaffeesatz + Tagesschrift

kaffeesatz
font
Kaffeeschrift was developed by Jan Gerner from Dresden for use in menus etc., hence the monospaced figures. It works well for titles and headers, but was not designed for longer texts (though it holds out surprisingly well)

tagesschrift
font
Tagesschrift is scanned and vectoralized handwriting; very nice atmosphere and a more than useful addition to the often rather dull set of open fonts available.
