“Paper Trail: Recording Rites of Passage in German-Speaking America”
Event Website

Fraktur A new exhibition at Colonial Williamsburg’s Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum celebrates the highly decorative and intricate records created by a diverse German-speaking population in early America. “Paper Trail: Recording Rites of Passage in German-Speaking America” is a collection of 17 frakturs — all created in Virginia and Pennsylvania — opening Saturday, June 29 in the Mary B. and William Lehman Guyton Gallery. The 100-year-old term “fraktur” initially described colorful and fancifully designed watercolors and illuminated manuscripts, usually recording births, baptisms, marriages and, in some instances, deaths, before the advent of centralized vital recordkeeping. For formal documents, the German-language scriveners favored an elaborate alphabet with letters that had a broken — or fractured — appearance.
