"Adine Kirnberg" is a beautiful structured calligraphic handwriting script with extravagent flourishes in the capitals, while the lower case looks very structured, making a great combination that is very well designed and yet highly ledgible.

This typeface archive includes both fonts, 'Adine Kirnberg Regular' and 'Adine Kirnberg Alternates', in both True Type and Postscript Type 1 font formats. Mr. Steffmann designed these fonts in 2003 and they are currently at version 2.12.

However, I have added the sample gif (found on that page) and tried to come up with some documentation for this archive so that the license and history is not lost (in usual Font-Journal fashion).

This archive has been enhanced with this note created by Doug Peters, for the Font-Journal, as a means to document the great works Dieter Steffmann has contributed to the world. This is done in the hopes that he will always be credited for his wonderful gifts to humanity, as many of his archives lack any documentation what-so-ever.

Please note that Dieter Steffmann has a great deal of typefaces on Font-Journal. To view it all you can see it at:

However, I have much to do to document it all, as the official archives had previously not included any documentation, perhaps because Dieter Steffmann made them freely available to the public without restriction.
