Austin Pen

Austin PenEmpresario Stephen F. Austin (1793-1836) is considered by many the “Father of Texas” for founding the first Anglo-American colony in the then-Mexican territory back in the 1820s. A few years later, while on a diplomatic mission to Mexico City, Austin was arrested on suspicion of plotting Texas independence and tossed in prison for virtually all of 1834. During this time he kept a secret diary—much of it written in Spanish. Austin Pen is our interpretation of his scribblings in this miniature prison journal (now in the collection of the wonderful Dolph Briscoe Center for American History). The font is both legible and evocative of commonplace American penmanship of two centuries ago. Austin Pen has both regular and bold weights—the latter replicating the look of ink-smudged script—along with scores of ligatures, stylistic alternates, a hand-lettered uppercase alphabet, and full Latin support. US$49.
