Inspired by Fraktur:

I have always liked the beautiful combination of Pennsylvania German and Dutch folk art. I love the way handwritten text is combined with drawings for legal documents, and for family records. I am playing with using elements of this style in some of my work, just playing around.

I also love the German Fraktur Blackletter style Fraktur. I have never been able to learn it.
An example of Fraktur document: here
