Pennsylvania German fraktur has an instantly recognizable style. The fractured calligraphy, surrounded by birds, swirls, and flowers, evolved to become a distinctly American folk art. Learn how to make fraktur of your own this spring with two classes offered this winter by the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society, both taught by local artist Emily Smucker-Beidler.
