Military Scribe

Military Scribe™ simulates the neat, compact, disconnected cursive script on the muster rolls of the 10th Regiment of Foot, a British military unit that saw action on American soil during the Revolutionary War. This font has an unmistakable period flair yet is handsome and legible—perfectly applicable to scores of modern design uses. Has more than 1,000 glyphs, including a full complement of period OpenType features.

Remsen Script

Remsen Script™ is an interpretation of the fine penmanship of an 18th-century Colonial American penman on a three-page broadside addressed to British Manufacturers by the Merchants of Philadelphia in the wake of the infamous 1765 Stamp Act. The font's fine period flourishes are perfect for formal announcements or historical simulations. Has nearly 1,000 characters, including plenty of other OpenType features.

Abigail Adams

Abigail Adams™ was inspired by the handwriting of the eponymous eighteenth-century American patriot in her many letters to her husband, John. Its distinctive disconnected scriptcarries a genuine flavor of the late eighteenth century. Comes with a slew of OpenType features.

Botanical Scribe

Botanical Scribe™ is modeled after the fine hand-inscribed legends on the early-19th century floral etchings of Pierre-Joseph Redouté. Its slight imperfections give it a warm, accessible feel, while it remains elegant enough for formal invitations. Has many OpenType features—nearly 700 characters in all.
