Geographica Hand

Geographica HandModeling antique fonts after historical materials gives you intimate familiary with those old letters and journals and maps. The maps that inspired our Geographica serif family proved more fruitful than I first expected: they begat a pair of spinoffs of sorts, each replicating a particular 18th-century handwritten style. This is one of these. (Geographica Script is the other.) Geographica Hand mimics the careful hand-lettered serif text on a series of British maps printed in the 1700s by Emanuel Bowen, Thomas Jefferys, and others—several of them representing Colonial America and Canada. The letterforms have long serifs, irregular lines, and an agreeably organic feel. Geographica Hand comes with a series of sketchy map ornaments—churches, windmills, boats, trees, and such. Best perhaps for display situations, but plenty legible in text blocks, as well. OpenType features include true small caps, contextual and discretionary ligatures, lining and old-style figures, cartographic ornaments, and full Latin support—900 glyphs in all. US$39.

RANDOM SIGHTING:
Houston Pen

KIND WORDS:

“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

“[American Scribe] is the 3rd font I have ordered from this foundry! Love them. Thanks for the good and authentic work!”
—V.B., BC, Canada

“I took one look at American Scribe and knew it was the Declaration of Independence before reading the ad copy. You captured it perfectly.”
—B.P., Marietta OH

“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

“The Texas Hero font is fantastic and just what I have been looking for.”
—D.M., Mahwah NJ

“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

“This is a fantastic resource and the fonts are beautiful!”
—C.B., Bethesda MD
