Eskapade is a typeface designed by Alisa Nowak and released through TypeTogether in 2012. The typeface is unusual in that it is available in both Roman and Fraktur (blackletter) styles that were created to be harmonious when mixed together. The Roman is slightly condensed to better match the proportions of the Fraktur style which is traditionally more condensed. The Fraktur version contains true italics which is rare for the blackletter genre.
