Marydale

MarydaleWhile working at a trade magazine many years ago, I admired the hand-lettering of a colleague and suggested she let me model a font after her penmanship. She drew out the alphabet, and I launched (then Altsys) Fontographer and (to shorten a long story) ended up designing my first font. For the heck of it, I released it and, astonishingly, it took off. And since then, Marydale herself has had the mixed blessing of seeing her handwriting (and name) plastered all over the planet. The Marydale family has regular, bold, and black weights; the OpenType release adds true small caps, numerous ligatures, and a stylistic set that substitutes a few less quirky glyphs (duplicating our “Marydale Inspired” version of the font)—as well as support for Central/Eastern European, Greek, and Cyrillic languages. US$79.

Bonsai is very beautiful; the font's antiquity seems to conjure a sweet staleness of old newsprint, somehow.”
—A.T., Ontario, Canada

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

“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

“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

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

“I've never seen anyone digitize old quill-pen handwriting [like Schooner Script], warts and all. You've done a fine job.”
—R.W., Costa Mesa CA

“I'm a collector of 19th century antiques and photographs, and like to make labels and scrapbooks using fonts that fit the period of my items. I've even tried to learn the penmanship myself using dip pens... your fonts will make it so much easier!”
—P.M., Palatine IL
