Geographica Script

Geographica ScriptWhile poring over the source materials for the Geographica family, I couldn’t help but admire the elaborate roundhand penmanship of British engravers working 250 years ago. I found myself studying other examples of such handwritten excellence, among them the maps of Emanuel Bowen (1694-1767), Geographer to King George II, as well as English and American trade cards of the period. The result (six painstaking months later) is Geographica Script, an elegant roundhand simulation steeped in 18th-century sophistication. Beyond its hundreds of alternate letterforms and flourishes, the font comes with fifty elaborate ornaments—crowns, beasts rampant, maritime creatures, and more. Geographica Script should prove useful in formal invitations and announcements, wine labels and other packaging, or to simulate antique script. OpenType features include three-plus uppercase alphabets, scores of ligatures (for cursive and/or period authenticity), lining and old-style figures, and full Latin support—1,100 glyphs in all. US$39.

RANDOM SIGHTING:
Texas Hero

KIND WORDS:

“The Lamar Pen font is divine. We are using it on a novel set in the eighteenth century, and the author is ecstatic.”
—J.H., London, England

“These are fantastic fonts, and I appreciate that your company offers a trial download (minus the "e") so I could sell these fonts to my client.
—L.A., Woodinville WA

“I have never encountered such fine and detailed work in a handwritten font before. I heartily applaud your attention to detail and historical accuracy.”
—J.W., Seattle WA

“Your period-style handwriting fonts remain the very best I've ever found. Thanks for your most excellent contributions to American typography!”
—A.L., Los Angeles CA

“[American Scribe] may be the greatest font ever! Everyone on the planet should have it!”
—M.P., Boulder CO

“I'm always on the lookout for handwriting fonts that look more like handwriting than fonts. I've always relied on Texas Hero, Schooner Script, and Emily Austin and was very happy to see Lamar Pen and American Scribe.”
—A.L., Los Angeles CA

“[Treefrog] is a real mess and breaks all the rules and I love it.”
—P.M., Palatine IL
